Space gray vs silver gray

Is there a difference between space gray and silver gray? All I know is they replaced silver gray in '08 with space gray. Is there a difference between them besides the name? What do you personally prefer, space gray or silverstone II?

I have looked at the space gray before purchasing my Silverstone M5. Especially, if the interior is also available in Silverstone with brush aluminum trim. I truly love this combination. I also have looked at the Silverstone with black interior and did care for it. I had five bmw and they were all with black leather and I wanted something different very much like my C63. Good luck.

It is really up to what you find more pleasing. I have the space gray and love it. Look at them side by side.

Space Gray is a little darker, and I must say I like it a bit more than Silver Gray, even though I think the M5 and M3 both look amazing in Silver Gray.

Also, I think Silverstone and Space Gray are both great colors, and both look good with Black, Indy Red, and Silverstone leather. I'd probably go for Space Gray but both are awesome.

Space Gray and Silver Gray are very similar, with Space Gray beings slightly darker. Silverstone II is much lighter and has a hint of "baby blue". I may be biased, but I would much rather have Space Gray (or Silver Gray if it's older than 2008).
