    Looks like Dolphin Grey. Check the paint code on your service book, should be LX7Z if Dolphin.

    Try this Chris, it's very useful. Find the code in your car, then match it up on this chart.

    No probs!

    It is quite useful actually, if any Mods think it worthy of adding to the reference section or as a sticky somewhere on the AS site maybe...?
