Forgive my naiveté, but what does it mean for the paint code to be released? Does this mean the paint code was made known to the general public? Does this mean that you were given the paint code? Does this mean that the US Dupont folks now have information corresponding to a specific paint code that they can provide to body shops here for mixing samples?
Background for questions is I was hoping to see first hand what the Olde English White would look like in the (currently unlikely) event it is added as a US color, or replaces an existing color.
My 2 cents on color...
My wife cares passionately about excluding specific colors (red, bordeaux, yellow, orange, purple, nightfall, black) and I really want a light colored interior, because we spend a fair amount of time with relatives in Arizona. My wife also tells me that some of the colors just don't go with biscuit (e.g. arctic silver). Unfortunately I am partially color blind, which means I can see and distinguish colors, but I cannot necessarily recognize complementary colors.
This leaves me with choosing between Magnetic Blue, BRG and ST. Any white variant would be a no-brainer, because that would be the coolest (heat-wise) body color. But since it's not offered "I" am falling into the camp of those guilty of spending much of their spare time worrying about color selection.
