    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.

    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 :)
