    I believe they do - I bought a Moonland Metalic set - base coat + lacquer - from a Vx dealer although it was a few years back now. Certainly worth a quick phone call to the parts dept.

    i went to a local paint company next to my work, i gave them the code and they supplied a can for me, not sure of the cost as they do a lot of business with us so it was done as a favour.

    Black is hard IMO. You seem to see straight through the paint and therefore see all the inpurities. I have got the halfords paint to match well, on my headlamp washers. But it took me around 30 hours o do it. Next time I will do an extra day at work and pay someone to do it!!!
