I've got an 04 - best color ever, lol

It is kind of neat the way it's usually a dark gray-green, except once in a while, when the light hits it just right it's a sort of olive color.

I have one, and though it's a pain to keep clean, I can't complain. The DMV sees it as a green car. Meter maids, on the other hand, see it as black. Guess what discrepancy I get to exploit when fighting Manhattan parking tickets!

I have a friend who's ridden in my 9-3 maybe 50 or 60 times. A few weeks ago, I told him what color the car is. He didn't believe me. We walked over, I shined a flashlight onto the hood, and I watched his jaw drop

I do not have graphite green but i can def feel what you guys are saying. My 04 Aero is Java its like some odd brown color with gray over it, i love it. Ive never seen one in this color anywhere not even on here adn the dealer in my area was even astonished at the color but he said they can order paint for it which means it has to be stock right?

As for cleaning cars, any dark car is impossible to keep clean everythign shows on it, which is why I will never ever buy another black car!

I've got it, too. It's a slick looking color--sometimes black, sometimes green. Looks good.

I don't have the graphite green but I have the Arbor Green. That's even more rare.

Show some pictures of a graphite green though!

I thought 2004 was the last year for graphite green? What is the build date for your car?

Well it very well may have been the last one of a 2004 batch. It was first registered in March 05 so quite likely that it had been sat around in a compound somewhere.
