Its a strange and beautiful color alright. Blueish in overcast and hints of green sparkle in the right conditions, its not the standard primer gray people see every day now.
I agree it isn't.

The '23 HR-V & '23 CR-V have a color coming that I suspect will be more like the primer look.

It's called Urban Gray Pearl if you felt like googling it.

Oh is that right? I don't think I've ever seen it in real life but very happy to hear that it's not just a straight primer grey.

The primer grey trend in the UK is massive for some reason. I think the look will really date cars in the future.

A good example is the contrast on the bottom of the third pic where the wing forms a shadow on the hatch lid. Cant see the sparkle from the flake but can see the green hue against the blueish hue formed by the shadow. The last pic shows the blue hue in overcast where i feel this color really does well.

Here's the video of Sonic Grey Type R:

It's either WC or SG for me!
Thank you!

One of the accessories I thought was a no brainier for me is the carbon fiber interior trim.

The trim around the gear shift is aluminium and seems as if you can change it to the carbon fiber. However it looks rather reflective and I'm not sure how I feel about it now.

Seat back protectors too. In my experience.. Customers who get the tray gladly get the seat back too.

These are my go to floor mats. I can't see that changing.
