What's the paint code on your VIN label mate? If you can't find that, pop me your VIN via PM so we can look up the colour.

Lotus don't do a touch up pen in that colour I'm afraid. Best option would be to get a paint shop to match it, they do a pretty good job nowadays.

Hey, so which number in the VIn is for the color? My car's color I think is midnight blue, i'm looking at my vin in front of me and i'm assuming its either C7 or D2? Is one of these my color?

It's not in the VIN, but on the VIN label on the car is another short code for the colour, for example mentioned above C182 ("Exige Orange").

Interesting, I thought c189 was Essex blue.

Ignore me, Essex Blue is C179

Hi all - thread dig. Where can I find the paint code? I know this is probably a n00b question, but there are a lot of codes on that chassis label under the rear seat... which one am I looking for? My owner's handbook has the car listed as carbon grey, in case anyone knows that off the top of their head.

Also, anyone know where to order touch up paint (spray can type) in Australia?
