    How do I find the colour of my car?

    I've searched but can't find it (Probably missing something really obvious)

    Is there a plate in the car which tells you the colour? Or a sticker or anything?

    Astra MK4 T Reg.

    The colour code is on the inside frame on the passenger side when the door is opened. Also should have axle weights. etc.

    Depends on the car, but I know some cars have the colour code under the bonnet. With the colour code, you can find out on the internet what it is, or simply go to Halfords and look at their book of colours and colour codes etc, will tell you the name in that.

    Or go to VX dealer parts department and they can tell you from your registration number.

    For Example, mine is Silver Lightning, which is 4AU.

    Is should also have a code for the cloth/interior pattern. IIRC.

    Might also be worth looking through the paperwork, if any which is included in the handbook package.

    I know on both my old Megane, and my brother's old MK4, there was some sort of documentation with the colour code or name on it. For example, I think in both instances have found something which related to when the car was new and first registered, in the Megane's case it was a warranty booklet, on the MK4 I think it was some sort of attachment to the sales invoice.

    there on the drivers side on the hatch for whatever reason.

    have a look on this thread and scroll down a bit to the pic of the black sticker on the inside of the red door. Colour code is in the bottom left corner of that and reference it to the paint codes at the top to check http://www.astraownersclub.com/vb/sh...ad.php?t=82172
    It would definitely go better with an engine in it
