What is the cars Vehicle Identity Number (VIN). You may see it at the bottom right of the windscreen or on the door pillar, give me that # and I will decode it and tell you the paint code and colour.

If you view this link then you will better understand what the vin # gives;

Thanks Eric, you decoded my vin in January and I referred to my copy....
got it. The aftermarket paint companies refer to it as a different color, but with the same paint number code. Can I rely on using the code?

Yes....693 Travertine beige with an asterisk
In the aftermarket 693 is called metallic silver.
Can I trust ordering 693?

The asterisk simply means metalic, it should be OK.
