Belize blue v6 darker than 4cylinder version?

Hi guys, so i've noticed that v6 belize blue tend to look nicer than the 4cylinder counterparts? the blue on 4cylinders look way lighter for some reason. also on my autobody paint software i see two variations. a darker variant vs a normal belize blue. Is this true or is it just me?

B551P is Belize Blue
B553P is Vortex Blue Pearl, which is indeed darker.

As far as I know, Honda has always had two shades of blue for each generation [of Accord], one darker than the other... although I think B553P was used with Acura (TSX and TL?)... Idunno. I could be wrong. lol
I have seen Accord sedans with a darker blue than the blue on Coupes though

I'm pretty sure the B553P Vortex Blue Pearl is the darker color used for the sedans, I can't find anything about 8 gen coupes having that color code as a factory option... Which makes it strange that the v6 BBP would be darker than the i4's BBP... I could be wrong about the sedan-only thing though. If however the color code is the same for both models, it has to be exactly the same mixture, right? Very odd if it's true that one is darker. I love the Belize Blue Pearl on my i4 though. It appears closer to a very light metallic blue in the sun, or a deep deep almost purple/indigo appearance in lowering lighting. So happy I found one!
