Finding my paint colour code?
« on: November 19, 2016, 06:58:31 PM »
Hello

Currently trying to touch up a few smaller chips on my bodywork of my 57 plate Sport, however I'm not sure how i find out the exact paint I need?

The colour itself is metallic black with flecks of blue/grey/silver under the sunlight but i cannot seem to find any further info on the interior panels of the car.

If someone could point me in the right direction i'd be gratetful!

Have a look on the drivers side door shut where there should be a plate detailing various things including your paint colour.  You have put Black Mica in your profile which equates to 16W

Hi all. I have searched all over trying to find the paint code of my 2011 mazda3 hatchback.its a silver grey colour. The top line from theid  plate from the drivers door reads as
e11*2001/116*0262  I have read that this line states the colour code of car but I can't match this to anything listed as Mazda colours.  if anybody can help I will be most grateful

I have moved this post to the appropriate place and merged it with an already existing thread that answers your question. A search from the home page would have assisted you.

Best thing to do, ring a dealer with your reg number.

Unfortunately mk2s don't have the sticker in the door with it on.

If you're looking for touch in paint it's actually reasonable as well costs less to buy it from a dealer than an autoparts store in my experience.

Also if you use the MyMazda online service history I'm pretty sure it gives it there as well.

It's about 7 quid iirc for a 3 pot touch up set. Halfords charge 14...madness.
