im having trouble getting a match... i have been speaking via email to a few online paint touch up companies, and they seem to think the "A" at the end of my paint code is irrelevant.
my paint code is 612/A, its grigio chiaro met, metallic silver on a 2000 156.
i have tried a couple of touch up paint places, and have been offered 612 and 612/D. 612 is apparently a single colour and doesnt lighten/darken or mix poorly, but no-one seems to have a match for 612/A. i have used 612 on my car, successfully filled a chip on my bonnet, wetsanded to flat and polished, but it is darker than the surrounding paint.
is 612/A a dealer-only paint match?
