Here is my new baby. People ask what colour is my new car and I have to go into lengthy explanation.
Is there a definitive name for this colour?

Not for the '06-'08, which is what it looks like based on the headlights and front end.

Tungsten Gray is the color, and it does look purplish in different light.

Sorry, forgot to mention year. It's 2007 Mazda 6 Touring Edition

As for Tungsten Gray, I looked at "Tungsten Gray" thread (http://forum.mazda6club.com/index.php?showtopic=90918)
and found that it's not the same.

It does look more purple under fluorescent light

Is there colour chart for Mazda 6 anywhere?

Thanks Mz6GreyGhost
I was just gogling and found few of these.
But all of them show "Violet Gray" without a hint of Violet - just darker gray

Thanks, I will check the code
So far looks like the "Violet-Gray" is the winner :yesnod:

My neighbor at my old place had one in that color, I could never tell the damn color because it looked purple/blue to me. Come to think of it, our outside lighting was flourescent.

violet gray = purple

steel gray = green[/b]
Uhh, what? Steel Gray looks green? Then I must be colorblind, because the only color I see in my car is... wait for it... GRAY!

The Steel Gray is a darker shade gray that was available from '03-'05, dropped for '06-up and replaced by a Tungsten Gray that's much lighter (and IMO more silver than gray).

yeah, youre probably color blind, :laugh: or youre just seeing what you want to see.
in the sunlight steel gray looks pretty green.
just like how in the sunlight tungsten looks purple.

tungsten looking silver? its not that light. this is the lightest i've ever seen my car.
i only got tungsten gray because i mistakenly thought it was titanium gray (the color used on the ms6)

HI~. Do you live in Canada and got the Canadian special model - "Touring edition-? If so. Its stormfront Grey same as my car. Down the states they also have this color call Violet gray. Both 33D paint code.

You have the exact same car as me and another member call " eliminator ". Visit my garage to compare =P

BTW. Which part of Canada are you located in?
