Singapore grey

A dealer is offering me an SG m5.....
Never seen one in flesh? Any thoughts on from anyone seeing the colour in life?
Also there another car (silverstone colour), the price is about the same and specs to.
I can't make up my mind about witch colour to go with....its a nice problem to have some might say but it is screwing my head.
There are in different locations not near me so I don't have the luxury of comparing them side by side.
Leaning forward do ss2 as I think it's an easier colour to maintain and I'm a bit anal about the cleanliness of my car.
Or is SG not to bad to maintaine?
Cheers.

Mine is SG and love the color. I like you like to keep my cars clean, so the darker color will show dirt a lot faster than the SS2. I just love the way the SG looks in different lighting.

What are the shades of SG.I have seen SS2 in flesh but not SG and as with SS2 camera pics can't seem to capture the different hues on either.
At the moment I'm running MONTE CARLO BLUE e92 M3.its a darkish colour and its"OK" to mantain.
Don't know how the two would compare cleaning wise?!

almost black, greenish and a little purplish tint to it in certain angles.
