Look up the vin, it will tell you the exact color.

It is hard to tell on a pc monitor. Also makes it more difficult because the car is indoors so the lighting is different as compared to a pic taken in natural sun light.

Its considered an upgraded paint, basically BMW's metallic black. I have the paint and in very bright light it almost looks like a very dark green/grey. At dusk with a proper detail the paint just shines! If you buy this car I would spend the extra cash and get someone to do a proper paint correction, my god does it ever make a difference. The picture below is what my paint looks like 3 years after I did had a detailer do a proper paint correction. It still looks amazing with only hand washing.
