I considered a number of the other colors since my local dealer had all of them in stock. I nearly went with the Carbide Gray, but my practical nature (laziness?) prevailed; it just made more sense to me to get a color that would hide dust and/or paint/clear-coat defects better.
I agree with midnite's assessment on the color. I've had my 2015 ice silver for 2 days and have not noticed the blueish hue. I did see it when I was picking it up because it was an overcast day. Look on the bright side - you get two colors for the price of one?

My wife and I saw an Ice Blue again today and did notice the blue hue this time . . and have decided we like it!

Is anybody willing to actually post pictures of their vehicle in this thread?

I'm looking at Lapis Blue Pearl, but so far the only pictures I've seen have been of the Legacy.

The only clear photos I've found look like this:



Still has shadows, but at least some sunlight on the paint. I'd love to see actual user photos in this thread, hence the reasoning for my initial post.

Ok, here are some additional dealer pics (perhaps not the quality needed though). I like this blue, wish it came with the dark interior.

Those pictures are much better. I'm a fan of the light interior living in TX, but I am with you re: Subaru and choices, I wish they gave us more of them. I'd like HID headlights on the '15 but you can only get those with the 3.6.

I wish they had WRB available, but LBP will suffice. Thank you!

Sweet ride! I noticed that there is no front license plate/frame. Is a front license plate not required in your area? It looks much better without a front plate.

From this angle it sure looks like a Hyundai Sonata. At least a 2011-2014. The 2015 gets a new look.

It's a 2015 Legacy. That said, I'm only curious about the color. This thread is about the '15 Outback, and I've seen almost no posts with actual pictures of a 2015 Outback. I'm guilty as well, I have nothing to add, I have to order my OB. I only posted the picture in order to determine if actual OB owners with LBP had would post pictures/confirm it looked like this vehicle.
