Arctic vs. Arctic White - Same? Diff.?

Does anyone know if the Arctic in the 2007 E90s will remain unchanged? A poster in the Arctic White E92 thread said that Arctic White didn't have that blue/greyish color changing quality, while another poster had mentioned that both colors are the same and have the same code. So which is it?

I'm ordering an Arctic 335i Sedan and I want to make sure it's the same Arctic as the '06s, with that color changing quality. I'm hoping ArW is only specific to E92s, if they are indeed different colors.

Thanks!

It seems have a blue/green hue to it on the e92 configurator on the bmw international site, but we all know how poorly bmw's photoshop colors represent the real thing. i was also kind of curious if anyone had a definitive answer to this.

Go to www.bmw.ch, configure both cars with arctic and view the results.
