    True to some extent but colour codes change on a 6 monthly basis so you would need to find one off a car that was made at virtually the same time as yours, impossible!!

    Red is the only colour you have this problem with because they start fading as soon as they go out into the sunlight! Your new bonnet has probably been painted the correct colour, its the rest of your car that isnt the same as when it was new.

    however the pigment can be restored by a polishing compound such as t-cut or machine polishing if youre good enough or know a detailer
