    you could ask VX for colour code then go to motor factors get them to make you up the same colour,be a lot cheaper than getting it from stealers

    Star Silver II is the closest colour match to Vauxhall stock alloys.

    cheers for replies, from google searches apparently vx dont have/or will supply the colour code and there are different shades of silver between earlir and later model cars. Would like as close match as possible as I have 2 virtually unmarked and dont want the other 2 looking different.

    You wouldn't see it imo. The distance between them would prevent the match being noticed. Its either that or paint all four or get a specialist to match the paint up.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
