    Paint Codes.

    My paint code is Z 2AU, is this one of the three different star silvers or lightning silver?

    I thought star silver was Z157? Thats what mine is. The other star silver is Z147. Maybe someone with the EPC can help u? Post a pic up of your car, the difference between silver and lightening silver is blatant

    Mine is an Opel code even though its a Vauxhall. So it could be any of the silvers. If its is star silver it will prob be Star silver 1. Pics of car in sig.

    There are links in his Sig.





    There are Three Star Silvers.

    1 - 88L/L138 (or Z138.)
    2 - 82L/83U/L147 (or Z147)
    3 - 2AU/L157 (or Z157)

    (Vauxhall code/Opel code)

    As yours is an 2001 if it's star silver. It'd be 2 which isn't 2AU
