There's also Bordeaux White....

I know my old 14 was Bordeaux White, but I think the 16v and GTis' are the slightly cooler Arctic White. Not sure of the paint codes though, but I don't remember any other variation of White on BXs'. You would easily see the difference between the two whites though, the Bordeaux being reltively 'warm' ie slightly yellowy and the other fractionally out the bluer side. Vauxhall used to have a very distinctive blue or ice tinged white, which is a bit more muted these days. Alfa even had a 'pink' white back in the 80s'. VW have Candy White...

I'd guess no one uses a pure base white - it is pretty hard on the eyes on such large areas such as W V man uses.... :wink:
