    Verify Paint Code

    Im having some parts of my convertible painted to match but cannot find the color code! its not on the strut tower, looks like it never was. Is the color code printed somewhere else or is there a way i can use my VIN to determine the paint code? Ive been googling as well....

    Thanks everyone

    i think ive narrowed it down to hellrot or brilliantrot, but would really like to verify. its a 1991 318iC m42, bottlecaps, 6 button MFC, e36 looking steering wheel....not sure if any of this could help determine what color code it is

      According to different sources, only Brillantrot 308 and Calypsorot 252 were available in 1991.

      But it only matters if you buy a touch up paint. A body shop will scan the existing paint.

        thank you vincenze, i was relatively certain it was brillantrot but i read that brillantrot was 1stage and my paint has clearcoat peeling, perhaps it was a repaint. i was also thining it could be zinnoberrot as it was manufactured until 1990 and if my car rolled off the shelf before september of '91 it could fall into that category i believe? was zinnoberrot a 1stage paint?

          I bought a car and decided to evaluate the car safety upgrades. The exterior of my car looked great before purchasing. After checking the VIN using the guide to car safety features , I got a complete understanding of the history of my car. I found out that the car was in an emergency condition and was painted several times. Therefore, I strongly recommend comparing what the seller tells you about the car and with what the car will fly in the whole business.
