Here are your color and model codes for the STi as I have them:

Model Codes:
4JI- 17" Gold Wheels
4JJ- 17" Silver/Gunmetal Wheels

Color Codes:
BCM- Java Black Pearl
BLU- World Rally Blue Mica (Pearl)
SIL- Premium Silver
WHI- Aspen White

No option codes yet.. :(

It seems the model and color codes are seperate, or maybe 4JI will only be available with BCM and BLU. We will have to wait until March to find out for sure...

Hey all,

When I filled out my purchase order, I did see a code for gunmetel rime but I wasn't paying that much attention to what it was. I almost told my dealer that I wanted the silver with gunmetel rims but liked the silver/silver look a little better. I need to contact my dealer again on Monday when I do if I remember I'll double check on the gunmetal coade and if there was on I'll post it.

Does anyone know if these color are the same as the one on the new STi in Japan?

I believe that Silver/Gunmetal is almost interchangable- in my mind at least...
What do you mean by that? That they are calling it the same thing, yet the wheel is a silver?

In my mind, they are definately not interchangable. Silver is silver, whereas gunmetal is more of a grey/charcoal/anthracite color. The problem is, Subaru may feel differently. I have told me dealer that if the wheels will indeed be gunmetal, I want them. If they're silver (regardless of what they call them) I'll go with the gold.

I'm equipped to do my own powder coating, so I'll have to see what I think of the silver with gold wheels combo. After watching the video that features that combo heavily, it's starting to grow on me. If not, I have plenty of colors to choose from.

91TB78 - You're probably looking at around $40 a wheel plus shipping to have one of the wheel restoring places repaint them. And I'm not sure most of them powder coat them... at least 2 I talked to use regular automotive paint (like OEM) when they redo wheels. You are much more limitted in colors when you powder coat, so I assume that's why they avoid it.

CloNeGTS - Depending on the finish the manufacturer used, it could be pretty easy or pretty hard. If the wheels are anodized, you really just need to clean them up and then coat them. If they're painted, you'll need to sandblast or chemically strip them and then coat them. Regardless, the wheel has to be down to bare metal in order to powder coat it.
