Guys 1st and foremost Happy Holidays!!
Just want ask if any of you knows what this deep gunmetal paint is... Is this Nissan OEM? I hope it is. A paint code will much be appreciated. ;)

Thanks KaXXen, but unfortunately I saw that Dark Grey Pearl it's actually bluish not like this... Others call it storm cloud for its bluish shade. This one is different.

The original paint code is on the chassis plate - at least that will tell you what colour it was out the factory
If it is an original 33 colour it must be the KN6 pearl as its certainly not any of the others listed.
Its not 32 gun metal which is darker.(more black)
The nissan pearls can look completely different in different lighting. I have a 32GTR in BL0 . This is supposed to be pearl blue grey but it can look lilac or close to gunmetal grey depending on the sun.

that colour looks awesome!!! and the car is puzzling me - it has the same front bumper as mine did which i believed only existed on the middlehurst UK editions? It appears the same apart from the indicator units have been removed.

It could well be the dark grey pearl as pearls (as stated prior) can change radically in varying lights. (Especially the US where they get a more intense light from the sun).

Go to a body shop and ask if they will paint you a swatch card for around £10.

Must admit that colour looks awesome on the R33.
