    If the paint code says it's mineral grey, chances are it's mineral grey :)

    Is it a pre-facelift that was registered late?

    there are a few around that are mineral grey :)

    To be honest, mineral is more rare than dolphin, and better looking too, so I'd be chuffed if I were you!

    Umm... tell you what ... I'll swap my lovely Dolphin Grey for your Mineral Grey.

    Dolphin Grey is the colour everyone really wanted their S3 ;) - Mineral Grey is the colour all Dolphin Grey owners want.
