Anyone seen a Pewter colored G? Ho'd it look?

I liked the Techtite (sp?)Grey...Wondered what Pewter looked like. Is it a lighter grey/gold color..kinda like a dessert silver?

Thanks

I've seen the desert silver (aka gold), it looked bad IMHO. Haven't seen the pewter.

Agreed...I don't like the gold either...That's why I'm wondering if the Pewter leans more toward a silver/grey than the "desert" color...

I've seen the pewter - it is nice. But for me techtite is my favourite G colour.

Please let me know what ya think....

I'm wondering if it's a lighter shade of the techtite grey? Just can't find one in the Pewter nearby to look at....

Thanks

Walked down the street to look at my nieghbors Pewter G500, and I found his car key half way down the road.

If you reads this, I left it with the doorman next to where you are parked. I can't find your card, or remember your user name on here .... [?]

First things first... A big thanks to "TheDogsCar" for finding my key. It's a very small world out there and I owe you one...

As far as Pewter goes, it is one of the rarest and IMO one of the most durable colors available for the G. I have crisscrossed the US and Canada and have had my share debris fly up and hit me. Although it chips like any paint, it is hardly noticeable. It hides the imperfections better than any color that I have seen. It is more subtle than Brilliant Silver and less bling than Desert Silver. It is an elegant long lasting color for the G.

Cheers,
Damon
