Colour codes

Post by chriscousins » Thu Dec 20, 2018 8:06 pm

I’m having my XM painted and need to find the colour code - does anyone know how to get it/where it is on the car?

It’s a 91J car, clearly silver but the V5 says “grey”.

The colour code will be behind the passenger side headlight, printed on the chassis leg. Usually buried under loads of wires!
I have done a colour chart with all XM colours and codes in the bodywork section, pinned at the top. Also there should be a diagram of paint code positions.

Hopefully your car hasn't been painted in a bodge colour like mine. I couldn't get a match with anything (colour code on vehicle had been painted over)
so finally had to get the colour matched at a paint shop to the petrol flap.
below is a photo of the two different colours in a door jamb.

Thanks for that, I'll have a look.
