Look on the drivers side door jam mate near the bottom should be a sticker with some codes on it, that will have your paint code, post a pic up and someone could tell you what colour it is :)

thanks gazz
Hi Gazz,

When I was colour coding I also DIY'd it. I went into Halfords and they mixed up the paint there and then. Colour match was spot on.

I took my time and the results were perfect. Actually better than a repair body shop after my car got scraped.

I think the cans were 300 or 500 ml at the time, but this is four years ago :S :(

yeh im diy'in!!! yeh im alright spraying so il take my time and prep it up nice and well. what finish laquar did you use mate? gloss?

im confuesed now, dont know wheather to get it mixed up there or buy the paint pre-mixed lol. can you remember the price difference? dont really wont to spend over 40 quid.

cheers gazz.

I Pm'd you about your lights Gazz..

As for paint, Halfords mix it for you, I think its circa £10 - £12 for a 500ml (Not got none for a while) You take the code into them and they custom mix it to colour match
No idea on price, but was less than 10 per can for me. I used about two cans of paint and two cans of lacquer/primer on side bump strips IIRC.

i have the same colour code car (D48) just wondering what the price difference will be from a body shop than me doing it. if its not too much more i may aswell get it done properly. if anyone has any advice that would be great.
nice colour car by the way ;)
