    Paint code

    My friend has just reversed into a lamp post and needs a new rear bumper and new rear passenger light, ive found allparts southwest who can supply a primered rear bumper and passenger rear light for £163.33 delivered anyone now of anywhere else or is this a good price and he has a blue astra but hes not sure what colour but is there a code on the VIN plate so we could find out what colour it is exactly, is a mk 4, 5 door astra hatchback 03 plate

    Thanks in advance

    Welcome mate

    The paint code is on the vin sticker in the drivers door shut. It should be the 4 digit code in the bottom left corner of the sticker

    Also where would be best for him to take that paint code to get some spray paint made up would halfords know the code or would he need to know the name of the paint?
    Thanks

    Halfords is the last place i'd go to get paint mixed, i'm sure they are all colour blind

    Can't really recomend anywhere myself
