Tough to tell from that picture (the color looks altered) but from what I've seen, silver is usually much brighter than that... so I vote titanium.

Bet even still, unless you are getting the parts from the same vendor the color may still be off.

I'm leaning towards that as well, a member pm'ed me the peice I need and he said his is titanium. And they do look similar. So it's gotta be it. Thanks man!

yeah, tough to tell from pic, but the cf even looks like it could be black. silver cf (which, along with titanium cf, is not real cf) looks almost white:







titanium cf is more grayish. i will try to dig up some good pics of it as well as one showing black, silver, and titanium cf together.

edit:

here are the pics i was able to dig up.





hope that helps somewhat.

Yeah I am a showoff sometimes... Sorry!

And nope never bought a silver CF SMG dome. I thought I had one on the way from EAS a while back but it turned out they sold it someone else after telling me it was mine...

Besides I am going the 2 tone CF so I like the black CF dome on the silver CF shifter console plate...

Also I did have a silver CF SMG shifter handle on order with CA Automotive but they screwed up my order this week and I just cancelled it. Those people are just to messed up to deal with !

I sure wish I could get that silver CF guage plate installed... Grrrr...
