    Default Paint colour code Red help please!

    Hi There, I'm hoping someone can help. I am currently helping my little sister fix her car after the drivers side was burnt when her neighbours car was torched. (as she's young, the excess is far more than what the repairs will cost - hence me helping her out)

    She has a 2006 55 plate Sri Vectra in Red.
    To save money on respray, we are looking for colour matched doors.
    Her colour code is 547 Red, which I am sure is the same as 79L/79U but really wanted to make sure before I got the doors for her, as it's her money.

    Could somebody confirm if this is the case please?

    Thanks muchly

    Ok... she's just sent me pic of VIN plate. And is says definite 547.

    I'm just confused as all of the touch up/spray paints for 547 also state they are suitable for 79u/79l

    Are they all the same colour?

    sorry..I think I'm being really thick here. (looong day already! lol)

    If her car is 547, and we bought a door in 79u, would they be a match?

    thats what the paint codes say ...that they are a match ...what you must be aware of tho is Red had a habit of turning a bit pink ...

    Yep

    You may have a claim but its going to be cheaper than the repairs.
