2010 Civic 1.8 type S in Grey?

I've spotted a 2010 type s in a metallic grey but I've never seen one before... Was this a standard colour at the time as I've only seen liquid metal or silver before and never grey.... I personally think the car looks awesome in this colour but want to be sure it's a factory colour!!
Many thanks in advance.

Thanks guys but I'm aware of what polished metal looks like and the car in question is deffo not that and more like a graphite grey. On a mobile at present but will post a link later so you can see the colour. Two in the whole country for sale so it's either Very very rare or something is amiss!!

Looks like polished metal to me.

The colour is actually quite hard to photograph correctly, it can be influenced heavily by the surrounding colours.

Ok thanks guys. I have to say that I've seen a polished metal one before and thought it had a kind of brown hue to the grey whereas this looks almost graphite grey and I mean in the metal as I viewed it on Saturday but stupidly didn't buy it!!... Anyone know the colour code for polished metal as I'm gonna check it out against the car just for peace of mind.

Check the Wiki.

I think Galaxy Grey has a brown sort of hue to it.
