I may be trading up for a STi soon and was considering Plasma Blue Pearl as my choice in color. Post 'em if you got 'em! (WRX welcome, too)

It's a good looking color, so I'd go with it. Goodluck with your purchase; you'll like the car regardless of the color.

Here's some quick shots I took after my first wash.

Loove that color!

And I think I've been in that shopping center, namely that starbucks!
Some buds of mine live in modesto.

Small world.
Anyways, I wish the 11's wrx came in this.

That color looks awesome. Is that a wrx? Or STI?

New to this community. Hello!

My Limited should look just like this. Thanks for the pics. I can't wait for December / Christmas. Just wish I didi not order the under dash lights. I did not realize they could not be turned off. I'm sure I'll find a way though.

First and foremost, welcome! It's a great community to be part of. Upload some pics when it does come in.

As for the lights.... I've ridden in WRX's with them and they aren't too bad honestly. Looks badass as hell when the car's clean!

Anyone know what the rankings of colors are as far as popularity or numbers produced? For example, is PBP more or less popular then black.... and so forth?

I think it'll be harder to find just because it's a relatively new color; 2012 is the first year I could get it on a wrx. I don't know how many were built though, so I cannot compare it to another color.

BTW, I doubt I'll own another black car lol (my previous wrx was Midnight Black Pearl).

Man I love that color. It reminds me of my old RS in Regal Blue Pearl. My next Subie will be that color for sure.

I feel the same way. It makes the car seem a bit more subtle for some reason. I like it and I am sure once it's been dropped and a nice set of tires and rims have been fitted it would look badass. I just can't explain it.
