    does anyone have a list of colour codes?

    my Z3 is a metalic Green, i bought a boot lid as advertised as "green". i assumed it would be the same original paint code, but with a different fade - the boot lid doesnt even look metalic its like a camo green.

    edit, after anothe google it i found this

    Open your bonnet and look at the strut towers - on one side (offside?) there is a label with the build date and the other (nearside?) a label with the colour name ;)

    It is difficult to perceive the colour mismatch in those pics maybe doing a wider angle shot would show it up better.

    Here is a list of all the common and not so common greens that BMW did for the Z3 though so when you have a look under the bonnet you should be able to match it to one of them;


    Flat colours
    326 Turquoise Green
    413 Fiji Green
    307 Dark Green
    358 Evergreen


    Metalic Colours
    408 Palmetto Green II
    275 Boston Green
    339 Atlantis
    406 Orinoco
    430 Oxford Green II
