Halfords will do a colour match - just take them in your paint code number (found in your bootlid probably) - 7.99 for a touch up pot, 9.99 for a spray can - they can mix while you wait, so probably cheaper and quicker than getting from Fiat.

Hope this helps,

Marko

My local autofactors will only supply custom mixed paint if you want it for touch ups etc. (i.e. they will match it directly from your body work). This avoids potential problems with mismatching colours that could arise using set colours mixed by halfords, etc.

Hi

Do you mean Halford make spray can after mixing to get a specific color? For me , they made paint and put in the bottle. I think spray can is better.

Thanks
