Did you ask the guys in Autobharn or did you just look on the pre-mixed paint in stock? They can find your paint from the 2 digit code.

Just a quick question, the code you have is it defeniately the colour code for the exterior and not the trim? If you have a real concern call a dealer parts dept give them the vin and they will give the colour code and colour name. Having said that the colour code will be on the VIN plate, decal . Hope that helps

MM sell touch up paint. I've picked some up before. Just ring them and quote the VIN and they'll let you know if they have it in stock or not. 15-20 bucks for a little vial.

Mitsubishi really like to confuse the issue when it comes to paint codes.

However, once you decode their system it isn't too bad, especially compared to Ford who have absolutely no idea.

The 2 letter paint code is a factory code and can refer to a specific colour, as with the example of Sophia White a few posts above.

DR though is a factory designation for an OEM multi-tone which is:
Upper: AC11008 - Pyrenees Black
Lower: AC10918 - Manhattan Grey

Sometimes the two letter codes are used for different purposes by different factories. So, DR also refers to AC10993 - Alhambre (Warm) Silver.

You should always use the paint code that is on the plate that looks like this:



Usually in the engine compartment, on the firewall, underside of the bonnet or on the radiator support panel.

This will show an abbreviation of the full, two letter, five number code and the secondary colour is stamped on there too. IN OP's case it will show "A08 A18".

Always use these codes when buying paint. For the purposes of touch up paint, where an accurate match isn't that critical, the formula is based on the original OEM standard for that colour, even though that isn't necessarily what is actually produced. In the case of Pyrenees Black, my paint system shows that there are 60 different variants of that colour! Choosing the right one becomes very important when spraying and using a paint system from a major worldwide company who have the staff in every different country to identify the variants and formulate matches becomes really important. The systems in auto parts shops are generally from small, local manufacturers who just don't have those resources and this is part of the reason why their colours are often such a poor match.

You really shouldn't have to go any further than this forum for the paint codes. I put them in the FAQ years ago

Wouldn't have helped with OP's problem though, Dave.

Bit out of date now too.

Where do you find the 3 character paint code on a NT Pajero?

My VIN plate on the firewall says FD for the paint code???
