    IIRC, that's right, but the differences are so subtle you wouldn't notice, especially for something like a spoiler.

    Have a search, there was a thread recently about this, someone with a star silver vec.

    No, there is about 8 different shade of Metro Blue. My sprayer needed the reg no. to get the correct shade.
    He gave Vaux the reg and they gave him the correct shade....Eventually!

    The paint code should be in the drivers door side on the post by the lock, that should be the exact code I would have thought.
