Default Carrera T Exterior Grey Trim - Agate or Titanium?

I have found several sources that describe the Carrera T's unique grey exterior trim as agate and several that state it's titanium. Two questions for you fellows. First, which is it? Do we have a definitive answer? Second, what is the difference between these two greys.

Never mind. I'm not sure why this link didn't come up in my previous searches, but this answers it. Wheels in titanium, mirrors and other bits in agate:

"The SportDesign exterior mirrors are painted in Agate Grey. The vehicle's side profile features 20-inch Carrera S wheels painted in Titanium Grey and a stripe bearing the model designation. The louvers of the rear decklid grill, the Porsche logotype, and the model designation "911 Carrera T" are finished in Agate Grey."

Itĺs actually both shades of grey. Titanium only on the wheels.

They are incredibly similar in colour, just about indistinguishable. Just put some Agate T style stripes on mine with a cut out to match the sides:

GT3ZZZ , where did you purchase those stripes? I would definitely consider that pattern to "jazz" up my Carrara white car. Mine looks a little plain since I had the side decals removed, though I go back and forth whether I like the sedate look. Just to add, the thing I like best about the glass rough is the appearance of the car, I was also thinking of wrapping the roof in high gloss black, but I worry how it will hold up over time.

The stripes came from http://www.highgatehouse.co.uk and are in Agate Grey Metallic to match the sides and mirrors.

Not sure if they're on the website, I emailed Rick with my requirements and he came back with these. He can do them with or without the cut out.

The roof decals came as one piece so my installer had to cut to fit my sunroof but that was straightforward.

Here are some pics of the Agate stripes on a white car that Rick sent me:
