    Default What colour code for my car?

    I looking to buy a 1/2 litre of paint to colour code the black trims / door handles and front lower spoiler when it arrives, but am unsure of wat the colour code is.

    I had a look at the plate in the driver side door, and thought it was Z2AU, but the paint shop said that nothing is coming up on there computer for that code.

    Just want to check before I head off to the shop.

    Any ideas?

    Heres a pic -

    So will the shop need 157/2AU or just 2AU?

    I know they will know what there correct paint code is, but I just like a little reasurance before he mixes it.

    Cheers guys!!
