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.[/b]
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.

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, 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)
