I had a 99 Diamond White which I was very disappointed with color wise. However, when I see newer models in person like 2003 etc the paint looks much whiter and much higher quality. Did they change paint codes?

They have recently, and may have in the early 2000s, hard to tell.

The current color is actually called White Lightning, and looks very crisp. It has tinges of pink and blue in it in certain lights. I like it -- it makes a new DTS look very stunning.

I really like the White Diamond on my '01. I'm not sure if it's the same as what was on your '99 (though it probably is). It's a very pearly/milky white. Not necessarily "CRISP" like the new White Lightning, but soft and subtle. I think with chrome wheels (factory or otherwise) and clean tires, it looks real sharp.

I'm not aware of any changes to the color through 2005. I think 2006 was the first year for the "new" White Lightning paint.
