    paint code confusion

    hi guys have just tried looking up my paint code on my car but am confused as to which bit to look at. the plate under the bonnet reads this in this exact order:

    755131 R22L662222HP
    DOM 1X82939TFO8TS GS8
    L95 MG4
    CF4 801 20X
    AJ3 PCO 01H

    i thought it may have been 801 20X but just tried looking that up in the OPEL/VAUXHALL colour chart topic but its not there. any help is greatly appreciated

    Sorry removed it because i though "Ffoeg" nailed it!

    should be on the 'b pillar' drivers side door, or it might be on the top of a suspension tower in engine bay.

    drivers door shut - bottom left of VIN plate

    judging by the very badly lit pic of ur motor in ur sig it looks similar to mine (Z282/13L) but cant be definite due to lighting.

    ignore the next code next to the paint code as this is the interior trim code and will be along the lines of XXCJ for instance.

    Pop up the code or just google it and youll get the colour

    had a look just now, at the bottom it says Y22L XXCO with 867 in the bottom right corner verticaly, so will it make it 867 Y22L?
