Why I Love Space Grey (LOTS of pics)

I've accumulated mass amounts of media of my car over the past few months and thought I would share it here with everyone.

I had one of my friends do paint correction on my car a couple months back. Here is some eye candy (but unfortunately just iPhone pics):







The reflection is incredible!


Borrowed my buddy's Nikon D60 for a day (saving my favorite for the POTM )

































And lastly, here is a video (sorry for the shakiness) of one of my friends and I having a little fun. Before anyone calls me out for being irresponsible, we did this dead in the middle of the night to avoid any oncoming traffic and on a road we have both driven multiple times. I have heard plenty of horror stories, so please believe me when I say I don't try to show off and/or test the car's limits or my own. I just signed up for my 2nd track day and plan to do many more!

UUC RK5 I think, I had one on my m3, came with the car. It is stainless but it feels like it is lead filled. Maybe 2-3 lbs.

Correct, it's the UUC RK5. It is indeed a seriously heavy knob...Something like 24oz IIRC. Shifts just sort of, well, fall in place!

Thanks for the compliments everyone!

That stretch of road is truly amazing, not to mention recently paved. That video was also cut down...the original is over 7 minutes long!

Dark Schnitzer, are you referring to Morro Bay/Rock? I've never heard of El Moro.

The first pics were taken at Lake Cachuma near SB and the coastal pics were taken at Shell Beach. The road in the video is, well, secret. Haha jk, it's called HWY 229. If anyone is ever in the area, it is well worth driving.

Beautiful car! I'm jealous of the interior!

I have silver grey and park next to an E92 space grey at work a lot and the difference is subtle but I can't lie...I like the space grey much better!

Thanks for all of the compliments guys! Definitely makes me feel proud and very fortunate to have the Moupe and to be a part of the Zpost community.

I really like Space because it's still light enough to show off the lines and hide some dirt, but when it's clean the darker shade of color makes it so much easier to see the gloss and depth than Silver Grey or TiAg.

Only other color that comes close for me is Interlagos
