Dark Graphite Metallic

Is the 2015 Dark Graphite Metallic darker than previous years. Here is my 2015 535d parked beside a 2014 435i; both vehicles are Dark Graphite Metallic, but mine looks darker. Please excuse how dirty it is.Click image for larger version

I don't remember all the specifics, but there was a plant damaged (Japan maybe) that was the source for DGM (Sophisto) and for a year or two (?) BMW offered DGM II. They were different slightly.

I didn't think the 4-series was offered in Dark Graphite Metallic, just Mineral Grey. At least in the US configurator...

Are you sure the 4 is DGM?

The 4 series is mineral grey, no wonder they look different

+1. I think Mineral Grey is kind of a successor to Space Grey, therefore lighter than DGM.
