Newbie WRX paint questions

hi all

ok firstly i'm a qualified Vehicle body repairer and painter by trade

now i was just looking of my car document's

and clearly the WRX wagon i have bought is Blue black mica

which was advised to me buy a nice forum mod Dave i think

any way on the on the subaru certificate of history its says the colour is GREEN!!!

and even on the MOT the colour is green...

even the hpi check via the garage i bought it off says its green

now i did get a bit paranoid and check under door seals and the engine bay

if there was a colour change then it must of been done by subaru

which is odd

everything looks original and not messed about with...


is this the case with subaru coulour codes on the Log book mot ETC

is this somthing to worry about

cheer's zakk

Hi Zakk.

Have a look at the paint code on the VIN plate.

Link: 1 Impreza Applied Model/Engine Codes



The paint code for Blue Black Mica is 08V

Blue-black has very small flakes of blue in the black paint.
