i actually like the looks of both whites. im leaning towards the SWP. but i dont know if its because my 2.5i is swp or because it actually does look better. however the aspen white is also sexy

The pearl will look better at night under street lights and store signs. Plus, it will show dirt a little less than the Aspen.

Aspen is better, satin looks like an eggshell white or an off white to me.

Satin white. Get AW and have a shop repaint it with a matte finish. Subaru paint sucks the nads, so skip the headache.

Definitely the Aspen White for me. It's just so vibrant and catchy.

I prefer Aspen but I'd dig Pearl. Actually from far I couldn't really tell. IT JUST LOOKS WHITE RIGHT.

Hell I've gone through a white phase that cars look the best in white, its the new black and making a comeback. What a timeless and classic color.

Love how AW is so crisp. I'd love to have an AW STi-SE. Anyone got one kicking around that they don't want?

Honestly though, some pics I see of SWP look like AW to me anyway, but up close I'm not usually a fan of the pearlescent effect.

I'm a big fan of the Aspen White. The car is more vibrant than the SWP IMO
