Default 08' colors?

I just bought an 08' Quartz silver metallic Spec B. Is this a new color or is it the same as 05'-07' silvers, but with a different name?

Its probably a different tint, shade, hue...whatever you want to call it.

Its like last year they changed from Atlantic Blue to Newport Blue, and if the two colors aren't side by side, you'd have a hard time telling the two apart.

yeah, i think the shade is different. my buddy just bought an '08 A4 and our paint is near identical (the subie seems to have a little more blue in it). his is even called quartz silver. by the way, subaru's paint quality is really impressive.

p.s. congrats on the new spec b, two days ago i picked up my qsm 2.5i 5-speed.

I do think their paints are beautiful, but they need to start using better clear coats or something.

Or they need to put liquid glass on all of the cars before they sell them
