    Hi can anyone help please, I need to find out what the paint code for my car is as I need to get some paint mixed to match.

    Have tried to find this info on the web but am struggling a bit and I'm sure one of you lads will be able to help.

    By the way my car is a 2006 CTDI tourer, with voice activated sat nav etc. it is silver but I need the exact one

    Cheers

    Neil

    That's why VIN plates takes the guess work out which silver is on the car. I can list all the paint codes you want for the 7thgen since it launch , but the VIN is definitive,

    Reason I wanted the code is cos I've had to fit a new set of rear parking sensors as the old ones were trashed !!!!

    What I've done is stripped them off, took off the bumper stripped out all the old wiring & then replaced them with a set of dolphin parking sensors, which seem to be good.

    The only issue I am having is that sometimes the sensors read the ground & you get a solid alarm tone, I have now got some 5 degree up tilt rings that fit under each sensor, which unfortunately are black, so they need to be painted to match the bumper, hence the request for help with the paint code -)

    Cheers
