Can anyone say with certainty if the Nissan colors Graphite Blue and Arctic Blue Metallic are the same? Is it just a renaming of the same color? There is a topper for sale in one color and mine is the other. It is too far to for me to drive (too much time) just to see if they match and pictures haven't helped. I know colors fade and I can accept that minor difference but it would be nice if both colors had the same starting point. Thanks!

Graphite Blue is Color Code: RAQ
Arctic Blue Metallic is Color Code: RBG

So, will guess they are slightly different. RBG was used in '15+ models.

Just by looking at a few different sites (including paintscratch.com, among other touch up paint sites) they list the color as "medium blue" spreading between 2015 to current, with the same letter code. This would lead me to believe that they are the same. I have only had my Frontier for a short time, but other cars I have owned have had a sticker that displays the paint code. If you could locate this sticker on your vehicle and have the seller of the part you're after verify the paint code on their sticker it would verify everything.

If all else fails, just call your local body shop. I'm sure they'll be happy to help. After all, it is likely that they'll make a future business connection by doing you the courtesy of verifying something for you.

Hope all goes well.

I guess I stand corrected! I suppose there is a difference after all. I didn't see the RAQ in the 2014 list
