We recommend always confirming the colour code on the vehicle prior to ordering. This is by far the most reliable way to ensure the right colour is ordered.
If you cannot locate your paint code on the vehicle the next best alternative is to contact a local Mercedes dealer parts / service department with your registration / VIN number. They will be able to confirm your colour from the relevant manufacturer database. (Alas only dealers have access to this system)
When placing an order please provide as much information as you can. Vehicle paint code systems can vary widely so we will use these extra details to double check your colour code and ensure we provide you with the correct colour for your vehicle.Buy Mercedes Touch Up Paint
