If this isn't in the spirit of things, mods feel free to delete.
But trying to get over the non anthracite/black diamond cut wheels palava, I went off to find something to see how mine would look with plain old silver wheels. This pic made it more palatable for me :p
I have linked rather than pasted direct as:
A. I didn't want to infringe on any copyrights
B. Its Hooooge (4500 x 3000 pixels), makes a nice wallpaper ;)

That is Business Grey. Quartz Grey isn't as bright nor as bluish.

I'm 99% sure this is quartz grey. It should be darker than those images.

I have seen both Business grey and Quartz on Superbs and I would say that the first picture with all the grass is TOO BLOO for Quartz!
The grass looks too green and so I think the photographer was using a filter of some sort.
A lot of 'Business Grey' pics look very blue especially the Paris launch under very strong flood lights. It distorted all the metallics I felt. Petrol blue for example would only look as blue as it did at Paris launch in tropical sunlight. My Yeti never loos the colour shown on the launch.
Honest John's pic is a fairly true likeness of business grey.

Yep that's the thing, artificial light and photographic filters can really distort the colours.
For instance, I think the above pic Zach posted is Quartz, but in that pic it looks a lot bluer than it does IRL.
The reason I believe the original pic I posted is Quartz is due to it having a blue/green tint, Business is lighter and more grey.
Obviously, whichever of us is correct, the photographers filter or post processing has altered the colour somewhat :)

Is Quartz just a renamed Metal grey (Previous Skoda colour) or a slightly changed new shade ?
