Default Nice color

I am more gravitated with pearl white since I think it is more classy. Love the work!

Looks awesome, that rear quarter panel in the first pick and the front fender on the second pick, you can really tell the Pearl, even from the distance you shot from! Very nice.

The color looks good, one of my favorites. I had that color Legacy.
If you are asking about the re paint part matching it be hard to say using a pic.

I think so, white pearl is a very difficult color to match.

If you can take another picture in overcast it may give us a better view. Your camera appears to be compensating the high exposure by artificial filters and difficult to tell the true color.

From the pics you posted, and not having a clue what they did, I would venture a guess of rear bumper and pass rear fender were painted, only because the colors look slightly off. This could 100% be the pics though. Even the worst paint jobs can look good from 10 ft away.

I find the white Subarus very attractive and stunning.

Gorgeous and love the STI Brembos. Just put them on my Pearl white WRX.

Has anyone tried to use the Subaru touch up paint on the pearl white? I have a few nicks on the nose but am not the best at touch-up. Thx.

I have. Its meh but I used it to cover a scratch on my lower front bumper. It matches the color to an extent but won't be smooth and glossy.

If anyone cares, the detailer in my office building gives the job great reviews. I took it to a custom paint shop and the guy couldn’t tell.

The last picture shows a slight difference in shade between the quarter and bumper but white pearls are very difficult to match so if you're satisfied with the work, I think that's all that matters.

Even factory paint has variations in the shade between the metal and plastic parts as they are painted separately.
