    Does "Thunder Gray" look at lot lighter than "Obsidian Black"?

    I have a Thunder Gray and I have to say it depends on the lighting. Unfortunately I don't have a ton of pictures (I am mostly in the car when pictures are taken :) ) but here is one I found that looks a little dark like in your top picture.

    I don't think they have changed it. Car lighting is just about what it's reflecting. The white set makes the gray look lighter that a much darker black pavement, dark buildings and shrubbery.
