They are different variants of milano red, some are darker,dirtier,lighter,cleaner,bluer,redder. Just go with standard R81.

like the guy said above. they are alternants. different cars come from different factories and have different shades. if you want to know yours. have your vin number ran at a paint shop. if not, just match up the chip to your car. the good thing about ppg is that they have those chips, and they are actually sprayed so thats what the color will look like. other paint manufacturers have printed color chips and they come out alot different than they look on the chip. if your doing a full respray just go with the most popular alternate.

most paint companys (dupont-ppg) can mix milano red in a base/clear instead of the factory tri-coat. on a side note i have seen paint companys mix it in base-clear and it looks nothing like milano red. do your research Click the image to open in full size.
