Might be the difference between what the supplier calls the color and what honda decided to call it based on what was more market friendly.
Thank GOODNESS! That's the answer to the question that nobody here asked.Polished Metal Metallic is EXCLUSIVE to the Hatch 5 door meaning this color is not available in the sedan or coupe which is "just as well' since it looks so stunning in the hatch!
I despise the name Brilliant Sporty Blue (is the "Metallic" even necessary at this point?)Thank GOODNESS! That's the answer to the question that nobody here asked.
I bought the touch-up paint for my Aegean Blue hatch and it's marked "Brilliant Sporty Blue Metallic". I've used it and I'll agree that it's a perfect match, so I'll side with @RobbJK88 and @dick w : the vendor and manufacturer are calling the colour by two different names, but they seem to be the very same.
