    Vauxhall don't assign specific paint codes to their wheels. They'll need to be matched.

    There will a method of mixing it which your vxl bodyshop will probably know off by heart. A universal paint code wouldn't mean anything, can you imagine how many different shades of anthracite there is? It would be like asking a bodyshop to paint your car silver, there are hundreds of different shades of silver.

    go to a wheel refurber or body shop and have a look at the paint chips. As Minxy has said there is no set paint code for anthracite. All manufacturers have a slightly different shade.

    ye do understand that, i just thought that for exaplme? anthracite was paint code abc then it would range from light to dark i.e abc1 being light and abc 10 being dark etc. my car is booked in with a crash repair agent and i asked them could i have anthracite or gunmetal? he said you can have what you like, just get us the paint code and we will mix the paint here!

    you have been more helpful than them!!!
