Variants or shades of car paint codes are produced by manufacturers to allow for differences that commonly occur on road vehicles. ( Mainly due to exposure to the elements )

A large majority of car colour codes still match well to the factory standard shade and this is an excellent match for a large majority of scratch repairs.

But where necessary we use our experience to provide you with the most popular current matching shade to your vehicle's specific car colour.
