    Silver is a ball ache to match up even if you get the right code. Getting a different star silver will just stick out like a sore testicle

    I know two of the Star Silvers theres 147 and 157 not sure on the third! And there is a difference, i bought 147 when spraying some parts on my Corsa C and it was totally different to 157! had to re-do them!
    THE STATEMENTS MADE ABOVE ARE MERELY MY OPINION AND SHOULD NOT BE INTERPRETED AS STATEMENTS OF FACT UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED

    Maybe your car is Mirage ? (a pretentiously names version of silver which is nearer to grey)

    I think there are 1 or 2 other colours of silver too.
