    Open your drivers door & look on the body of the car.
    You'll see a sticker there with numbers on it.

    Then, check the numbers against this list............

    This should tell you the colour of your car.

    Mines midnight black, it has sliver flakes in the paint. I think sapphire black has red flakes in it and looks like a much darker shade of black.

    Is diamond black and midnight black the same? Staff your black looks the same as my black lolol This is all getting very spinal tap
