Default Nautical Blue or Blue Ribbon?

I'm in a bit of a fit here because I can't tell what color my car is. I bought it used and all they said was "Blue". According to the list on ScionLife I can tell it's either Blue Ribbon Metallic or Nautical Blue Metallic as both were used in 2008.

When i Look up my VIN Number online it gives me these options:

Black Sand Pearl, Classical Silver Metallic, Flint Mica, Nautical Blue Metallic, Sizzling Crimson Mica, Super White, Waveline Pearl.

But when i look on the Driver side door well theres a plate that has alot of numbers and on it it says:

C\TR - 8T5\????

Which I'm guessing is Color and Trim. Color is 8T5 which is Toyota color code for Blue Ribbon Metallic.

I've searched and found pictures of both and it's extremely hard to tell.

Here's a picture of my car.





Thanks!

Yea, i guess i should have just believed the plate on the car and not what some website said the VIN applies too.

Blue ribbon it is. Thank you! Just didn't want to buy the wrong touch up paint or body accessory

on the inside of the door it should give you the color code of the car.

Looking back at that thread i see now that you did. I guess i read it wrong, along with so loww's comment i thought the other car was BRM.

Case closed, murder solved.
