    I guess what's confusing is when you go to a Honda dealer and the tell you that your paint code has been superseded by another one. Use this one they said. It's the same color. Good thing these forums exist. 😳

    Neither did any Honda dealership I went to. They thought I was crazy when I mentioned it. Ironic, considering Honda's website said "See your dealership for more informaton." InformationFail on that one, Honda...

    While I feel like one version is definitely more of a flat blue/teal color, and one is more blue blue and has a lot more depth to it, I can't for sure comment, as I don't think I've ever been able to park my car (which the window sticker says Dyno Blue Pearl II) next to one I could CONFIRM was the original, I'm still not 100% sure.

    What I AM 100% sure of is that the 9th gen's Dyno Blue Pearl is NOTHING like the 8th gen's Dyno Blue Pearl -which was almost greenish in a lot of light. They may all share the same name, but they are definitely not the same paint color, at all.

    Before my first 2012 Si got totaled by a stupid teenager running a red light, I got into a fender bender on black ice (I still think the stock all-seasons are shit, though). It took them awhile to get it fixed (they had part availability issues), and the paint was definitely the right color. I don't think it'll be that big of an issue, especially if Dyno Blue Pearl II is the color going forward. I would, however, be mildly interested in DBP I will be harder to obtain because it was only made due to pigmentation issues earlier.

    Probably not gonna be a problem though, as body shops seem to always be able to get the paint they need, regardless of the cars age. The 'pearl' part can be a REAL pain in the ass though, from what I hear.
