Thanks Timronak! Out of curiosity, how/where did you find that deal? I've been looking for a few months and haven't been able to find anything close to that good of a deal. I'm trying to get something less than 65k miles w/ a stick and Monsoon and I can't seem to find anything less that $12k. I feel like I should be able to do better than that based on your price and miles.

Thanks!

The GM common name for 2009 is All Terrain Blue
Pontiac Solstice stayed with the name Deep (probably to save money) even though Pontiac changed the color.
I was under the impression that the 2009 Saturn Sky was called Evening Blue?

Below is two examples of Deep, the one on the right is the one year only 2009 shade. This is the color of the above car for sale.

So Compnine's database is incorrect. Everyone else knows the 48U was paint code WA-406P, All Terrain Blue, also known as Evening Blue when applied to a Saturn Sky and Deep when applied to a Pontiac Solstice.

Check your 2009 Printbook.

I have noticed the same thing happening with other RPOs at Compnine, where the current descriptions of an RPO are incorrect when you look at other, then current, descriptions from the past or in other publications.

Again, I surmise that there is a current table that Compnine references, for descriptions of RPOs. It then applies these current descriptions to their reports, regardless of years, thereby possibly producing incorrect descriptions on "historical" lookups.

RPO Codes are definitely ambiguous. A list published by AC Delco - I don't know what year - lists:
Quote:
48U EXTERIOR COLOR,PRIMARY,DK YELLOW GREEN METALLIC
48U EXTERIOR COLOR,PRIMARY,BLACK EMERALD MET
48U PRIMARY COLOR,DARK MEANDER GREEN METALLIC
48U EXTERIOR COLOR,PRIMARY,DK RED
48U PRIMARY COLOR,BRILLIANT GREEN(GMDAT)

I scrolled through a fair portion of the 421 pages of codes in the ACDelco list and I think you are exactly correct. Throughout the list there are random codes that have been recycled, some for minor variations of the same thing and some for things that are completely unrelated. When it comes to paint codes, however, I did not see a single one that didn't apply to a half-dozen different colors, so using the RPO code for color description outside of things that are exclusively Kappa (or maybe GM from '05 thru '10) is going to give random results. I guess that is the reason that the paint code is listed also.

I can honestly say I've never seen that color in person that I can remember. It is most certainly a Blurple kind of color. I like it...but not more than my Midnight Blue.

That is the color that replaced the Midnight Blue for 2009/10: All Terrain Blue(Generic), or Evening Blue(Sky), or Deep(Solstice). WA406P

Just in case you were going to ask.
