    You really sure about the black grout?
    I've been tiling a long time and I would refuse to install metros with black grout.
    You're fixing will have to be absolutely perfect so as not to highlight any joint variations which the black grout will enhance, and the Micromax2 which Topps will sell you is notorious for leaking dye into the tiles, so if the tiles are not very very high quality, they will stain.

    Oh, sorry to answer your question, that looks like a 2mm joint to me.

    And the pattern followed round the corner is wrong.

    2mm for me. I've done a full bathroom in white metros and black grout. Damned hard work getting it spot on. Every tiny deviation and chip is highlighted.

    I have done a few with black grout and I would not like to think a diy project was attempting it for the reasons above! A dark grey is a lot better, and nicer looking! 2mm joints always
