The paint on the 2.0 looks to be thicker, but the WR Blue looks thinner then cheap typing paper. I am going to take it into the dealer and see what they say, but I don't have high hopes.

    Could be the difference between the satin stage on the SWP and the WRB paint. SWP is also a 3 stage paint, Satin white, Pearl coat, then clean coat. Is the WRB a peal effect as well?
