    Paint Code ?

    Anyone know the paint code for Phantom Black, my car was sold to me (used ex demo) as Flat Black but the paint is definetly metalic in this lovely sunshine.

    I'm wondering if this was yet another option the dealer left off the listing ? (I gained GSM phone kit, ipod & Cruise)

    I'm interested to know as if my colour is indeed Solid Black I will cancel my forthcoming order for Phantom and save myself 500 as it's lovely

    If you look under the spare wheel you'll find the code for yours, put it into google and it'll tell you what it is.

    Phantom is pearlescent by the way.

    Pleased to report I have Phantom, I did think the paint was too 'interesting' to be solid black.
    At least I am now happy with my ordered paint colour for the TTS

    It's amazing how many extras the Dealer either missed off or got wrong on the ad for my used car, makes it seem more of a good buy now even if I won't have it for that long.

    Thanks all for your help
