Default Where to find the Paint Code

Hope this helps people

Obviously the code shown is not exactly going to be for your car unless its the same as mine and thats icelandic grey So heres were the code is also its on your strut top in the engine bay but my strut brace is covering it





The 4 letters are your colour code



Normally they will just ask for 3 letters so take the 1st 3 letters, so in my case it would be EYL

i did use the search function but i thought halfords had a reputation for not doing a good job on paint matches. thats what i read in all the threads i found from the search. but i'll give halfords a go.

I have a Mk1 Saxo Pred... My sticker isn't there but instead its on the edge of the door showing tyre pressures.

Would it be in the boot on the metal stamped plate maybe?


Sorry to bring up a old topic, I'm really intrested to know what colour mine is.

Dannyboy it will tell you your colour 'name' on your logbook.

Then you can do a search for the code using the name.

If that makes sense... lulz.
