I'm looking to get me one of these cars, how many different greys did they come in? Is the Limited dark grey the same as the Sports dark grey? I know there's a silver, too. Don't want the silver. I think the grey was called urban something.

Thanks, I checked those out. Looks like there are about 5 different greys, not counting the bottom of LL bean cars. The list doesn't show a sports option for 06 either. I guess my question is, are sports models a darker grey than limited models?

Sports were only offered in 2007 & 2008.

Well that explains it, but I'm still lost on the darkness of the greys. There's a guy on here selling a car in Nevada somewhere, and his car looks super dark compared to most that I've seen, looks good, but sports models run a bit higher than others, and I'd really like the leather of a Limited with the body of a sports. Seems switching the nose would be cheaper than switching the seats.

The dark gray looks almost black in certain light conditions. It's more like a charcoal color.

Yeah, that's pretty dark, and I suppose the Limited models weren't available in that color?
