    That is Polar Sea Blue.

    use grey primer, and build up lots of layers to get it darker to match your car.

    Generally, more layers of paint = greater depth & darker shade, more layers of lacquer = lighter shade.

    ^^ that's a grossly generic statement though, it's not true for a lot of colours but works ok as a rule of thumb.
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe
