    If your touch up pen is an original Vauxhall pen ,


    the different shade could be down to your car fading over the years ,

    i'm sure someone will be along with other suggestions soon ,

    i hope you get it sorted .

    I recently bought a 500ml of metro blue for a bit of spraying that I need to do. The guy told me there are 3 shades for metro blue despite giving the correct paint code I have never heard of this.

    My other car. 1972 1641cc slammed beetle. On the road finally!!

    Halfrauds told me 6 different shades for code 168... also they didnt have it in stock despite the book saying they had, wanting £20 for a 300ml tin..

    and the metro blue touch up pen is considerably darker than the pint on my car too, but the spray paint is a near exact match from VX
