well i mean, its kinda like asking whats the difference in rims. sometimes you have to keep looking for stuff in order to expand your knowledge and not rely on other people to tell you all the answers.

Rally Blue Pear is the 1998-99 US 2.5RS Color
Blue Ridge Pearl is the 2000-??(I believe 05) US 2.5RS Color
World Rally Blue is the 2002-07 US WRX/STi Color

Then theres some Regal Blue for the 2006-07 2.5i

Isn't the dark blue (BRP MY00), lighter than the Midnight Pearl of the 02+ ? :confused:
I met up with a GD that was Midnight Pearl, and side by side looked almost black, compared to my BRP.

There was also an agean blue which was a blue/green color used on the L's in the mid 90's.

Basically, if you're looking to stick with a "stock" Subaru blue color go with either Blue Ridge Pearl, Rally Blue Pearl, or World Rally Blue. The last two are almost identical. You're best bet is to go to a auto paint shop and ask to see their color books and tell them you want a stock subaru blue color. They have little sample squares that show what each of them look like and they can make the paint for you.
