    Sticker in my car says LZ7L. Looked it up on the reference computer at work, and it was listed as Z7L, not sure why the first L is dropped, but the name matched.

    Whats the colour description for your paint. Eg Reflex Silver or Daytona Grey.

    Try finding the paint via the description

    LY7W is the correct code, motosave is the problem. Any reputable dealer or paint supplier will be able to supply the correct colour under that code :)
