Arctic Silver vs Desert Silver vs Satin Gray - any side-by-side pics?

Just curious how my Satin Gray 48W matches to Arctic Silver 01G and Desert Silver 41V.

Are there any pics of these side-by-side, maybe from a gathering somewhere?

Thx

Ron

I'd recommend looking through the official silver thread for pics of the various silvers or searching to see if anyone has posted a comparison before.

Thanks, didn't know there was a silver thread - and yes I searched silver!  I didn't look far enough down the list of results.   banghead

Desert Silver (sun can wash this color out so that it appears like the other two. Should be a goldish-silver, undertones of green in certain lights):

Arctic Silver (brightest one, can appear white under certain lighting conditions):

Satin Gray (this is a gunmetal gray color with undertones of gold/bronze):

Satin Grey and Desert silver are the closest, but still distinct shades.

7/10, used an example with door moldings.

It's light silver, dark silver, and gold silver.

Thanks..I think my Satin Gray is my least favorite of all the colors.  Seems like every car I have had lately has been gray...

Really? Do you prefer one of the other silvers? I like the satin gray on my Saabaru, it stands out from the other silver colored cars out there that are typically lighter/moar blue like the arctic silver.
