    I thought it was SS3? mine looks same car and has been quoted at SS3 twice at 2 different paint shops. However just like Perry, we have darker front bumpers so maybe ours is SS2 but wrongly told it was SS3

    Mines the opposite... My vauxhall one is a rubbish match, I got some paint mixed up from a body shop supplier for about £12, and just use the primer and lacquer from the vaux kit...

    What's the paint code? It's on the VIN plate on the drivers side B post.

    Most likely it'll be Star Silver III (approx from 2001 onwards)

    88L is Star Silver I
    82L is Star Silver II
    2AU is Star Silver III

    Thanks Big Dave :-)
