I actually just ordered 1/2oz of the orange paint (my ID badge got caught in the door and chipped the paint down to the metal :( )

The code for Tang Orange was G2U

Those are not the XV paint colors. Those are the WRX and STI color options from a couple years ago, a few of them are the same though.
The XV paint options are:
(color shorthand, paint code, color name)

CBS, D4S, Crystal Black Silica
DGM, 61K, Dark Gray Metallic
DKH, H6Q, Desert Khaki
ISM, G1U, Ice Silver Metallic
MBP, F9H, Marine Blue Pearl
TOP, G2U, Tangerine Orange Pearl
VRP, H2Q, Venetian Red Pearl
WHI, 37J, Satin White Pearl

Thanks for the clarification Subir_roo, I guess if I hadn't skimmed the list and just posted up the orange code, I would have noticed that the color names weren't correct ;)

I too skimmed it but the lightening red jumped out at me. They haven't offered that one for a couple years now.

I'll claim ignorance since this is my first foray into the Subaru family. I didn't know any better! ;)

Thanks! Alldata is going to get some people's cars jacked up!

Alldata can be a bit off sometimes. I've noticed they often have information on the new models that's take from older models and is not always correct. It seems much more accurate for the older cars.

When they updated everything a month or two ago, all kinds of things went haywire. I think this is just a case of misinformation.

Most likely. Although a lightening red XV would look pretty legit!

Just received a 1/2 oz of Tangerine (G2U) to fix a tiny little chip. I'll let everyone know how accurate the coloring is!
