Decisions g21 dravit grey vs oxide grey

hi thinking about buying a g21 330i or 340i

it's a hard decision between dravit grey and oxide gray....
i know a oxide grey for sale with merino tartufo interior, not xdrive but for the rest full option
when i see picture of oxide grey sometimes its more gold ( looks like a old color) and dravit grey looks somtimes like nardogrey and sometimes real dark
whats your favorite ?

OG gets my vote, although the daylight plays tricks on both colours to the point where just one angle makes you dislike it and would have to keep moving it on the drive :

Oxide > Dravit imo.

Dravit just looks like bondo / paint primer / plain clay to me. Battleship grey.

Fits fine if you're in the Navy and want to take a pic outside your frigate.

I am considering the Dravit but really want to see it in a saloon in the flesh. I think the G21 in Dravit is stunning.

Oxide grey for me... just has that extra look of class and exclusivity.

My vote for Oxide, similar to Donington Grey, is just f'ing gorgeous and shows off the lines of the 3er nicely.

Oxide if you get the 330i, Dravit if it's the m340i.

Easily Dravit for me, never get tired of seeing it in different light and surroundings. It's such a lively colour.

Just for reference, my Nardo M340I. Winter rims and tires.. The stock 20's are waiting a few more weeks for winter to go away. I just picked it up today from getting ceramic coated. This pic is from 2 weeks ago when I first picked it up.

Tough choice, OG is the classy choice and DG looks more aggressive. I went for DG and get compliments all the time. DG is a more complex colour as it changes in different light conditions. It will certainly look more unique on the road compared to OG which will blend in with the many common silver colours out there.
