Saab-Subaru Color Cross Reference

Thought this might be useful.  I found a chart with paint codes and came up with this:

Saab Name - Paint Code - Subaru Name
Arctic Silver Metallic - 01G - Platinum Silver Metallic
Brilliant Red - 22G - San Remo Red
Deep Blue Mica - 35J - Regal Blue Pearl
Desert Silver Metallic - 41V - None?
Midnight Black Mica - 32J - Obsidian Black Pearl
Nordic Gray Metallic - 26D - Steel Gray Metallic
Satin Gray Metallic - 48W - Crystal Gray Metallic

Desert Silver appears to be a Saab specific color.  All the rest have a Subaru color with the same paint code. 

Anyway, thought this might be useful if you're looking for touch up paint or looking for an interchangable body part from a Subaru.

Thanks!  You have Arctic Silver like my car....have you used Subaru's touch up paint on your car? If so does it match well?  I have some scratches I really want to touch up.

Re: Saab-Subaru Color Cross Reference

I haven't used the touch up paint yet but I have a friend with a PSM STi.  We compared them side by side and the color is exactly the same.

Thanks, now I have to decide if I want to use a touch up pen or bottle w/little brush.

Re: Saab-Subaru Color Cross Reference

I'm pretty sure Saab Satin Gray is Subaru's Crystal Gray Metallic
Also I think Saab's Nordic Grey - Sub's Steel Gray


Obligatory sig with extensive power mod list for greater respect:
-JDM oil pan, JDM dipstick, STI oil pickup and baffle plate for ultimate oil flow, STI midpipe for uber power gains.
-WetOkole front seat covers for ass sweat stains
-Drawtite hitch (no wiring) for a bike and a trunkmonkey for shits and giggles

Re: Saab-Subaru Color Cross Reference

Added satin gray and renamed steel gray to nordic gray.  Thanks nimaxpro!  I think the chart I'm looking at has the Saab nordic gray mislabeled with the Subaru color.
