    having used many colours from halfords, i have learnt the hard way that they are not the best quality mixed aerosols available. i get mine mixed from either http://www.carpaints4u.com
    or

    I use them loads, only time when paint matching is using glaicer white and it looks good. Well there is a slight paint miss-patch but I think thats because Im always spaying onto black plastic (bump strips, handles, side skirts etc)

    Ive used the Halfords paint before, the colour matched well. But as said the paint doesn't mix very well and I find its hard to get a good even application of the paint all over. Think I'm going to try paints from else where next time.
