Exclamation Confused about paint codes

Hi all

I have a 2003 Exceed and want to touch up the paintwork (Black with Silver trim). The plate says the code for the body paint is DR. However, Autobahn have no paint that matches this code - is there an alternate code that I should be looking for.

All help greatly appreciated

Regards Kevin

There should be a code with 1 letter and 2 numbers....

Mine said CX, i kept looking and found A09 which is my colour....

From memory, one was on the plate on the firewall and the other was on the sticker in the door jam.... cant remember which code was on which plate though....

I'm really surprised Autobharn can't find your paint, I recently got my paint mixed from them after I gave them my 2 letter code found on the plate on the firewall. The guy looked it up on the computer and found it straight away.

The two letter code is generally an oem specific paint.
I'll look up the code where I search for paints, did it for a gen1 owner the other day who had a not so common blue with two letter code and no shop could identify it, not even mits. I found it in 5mins lol

Once you find the correct code on the data plate, these sites may help you work out the name of the colour:

Thanks Matt - all I can find on the door jambs is the recommended tyre pressures

Found this where I'd made a note a while ago - it might be useful as well ...

Only match to DR I could find that comes close to your description was a mazda silver.

Here is the link, click on color finder and then accept terms and conditions then do an advanced search using mitsubishi as manufacturer and then put year model in and have a flick through. You can sort by colour categories like blacks, blues etc as well
