post your sonic blue!
 
noticed sonic blue is not included in the "Official 2012+ Colors thread" so please post them if you got them! [popcorn]

Is sonic blue a predecesor to the Kona blue, or visa versa?

Kona Blue was discontinued after the Japan earthquake, so Sonic took it's place. [;)]

Vice versa. I ordered in June and wanted Kona but it was no longer available (Japan earthquake and tsunami affected availability according to my salesperson) and replaced with Sonic.

Gotcha...my salesman mentioned something about paint availability...Lets see the sonic blues!

MODS, can we add this thread as a link in the "official colors" sticky?

Interesting, is it the same as the original sonic blue?

Very similar. A bit more metallic than the original in my opinion, but basically the same tone of blue.

That's odd, Kona blue is available on other models.

Here is my Sonic SE, shortly after delivery 8/26/2011.

This car was ordered right at the time of the Kona Blue changeover to Sonic.
In all honesty it took a while to acclimate to the color. Sonic Blue seems to give off different hues depending on the lighting, but overall I like it

So did the Kona blue. It looked too much in the purple range for me, I like the sonic though, more toward the green spectrum...
