    Default Paint matching parking sensors?

    Does anyone know if Vauxhall or Halfords (or anyone else for that matter) will paint match a set of parking sensors, and if it's expensive? The Vectra I'm getting is Metro Blue, and Id like the sensors to be an exact match. Also does anyone know roughly how much fitting a four sensor kit would cost? It's not something I'd be comfortable attempting myself. Thanks.

    I'd thought about getting a spray can, but can't find one for Metro Blue, the only thing available is a stone chip kit!

    Your Vx dealer will sell a spray can of the exact colour match to your car - don't go to Halfords.

    The halfords can was a good match for my car for the job it had to do.

    As above, Vaux should be able to sort you out

    Last time I got some it was around a tenner (ish) IIRC and that was the twin pack of a can of paint and clear lacquer.
