Default Titansilber vs Stahlgru Color

Trying to find a new rear bumper (itís impossible) and I ran across this one on eBay.

https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?m...2F163230020193

Seller says they canít verify color....it looks like Titansilber, and thatís what I need. Stahlgru seems darker than that to me....thoughts???

Itís an expensive gamble but INSANELY difficult to get Titansilber parts in NE.

I know, I'm starting to think that as well, but TiAg looks almost white. I think it's the lighting.

Thatís why I was thinking it might be TS. Both SG colors seem quite a bit darker to me...

steel grey is darker than this.
The lighting is very deceptive but it reveals itself in the flake.

+1 for silbergrau

edit: I say go see it in person upon further review haha

Default Re: Titansilber vs Stahlgru Color

maybe you can get some better pictures. I'm sure with better lighting you'd be able to tell.
good luck

Edit: the more i look at it the more i can see it being tiag in disguise
