space gray vs. stratus gray

Does anyone have a good side-by-side comparison picture of these two grays, preferably involving a pre-2009 Z4? I'm having a devil of a time finding good photos of either -- half the pictures...

Interesting. I heard a dealer is NOT allowed to CPO a car they don't sell out of their inventory.

Any of our mid-atlantic BMW dealers willing to CPO a car bought from a non-BMW retailer?

Extended warranty on used car?

Comfort Access

Is this option necessary to be able to open / close the top from outside the car? Or will holding down the unlock button do this for all new model Z4s?

Thanks.
