Lipari Grey Touch up pen doesn't match car
I've got a 57 plat GT in Lipari grey. The colour code is 639.
Went to my local dealer and bought a genuine Alfa touch up paint pen and clear coat, but when tried to touch up a few chips noticed that the colour is much too light and completely wrong.
Had a paint guy out today to a small smart repair (broken reverse sensor) and showed him the paint pen I bought and he agrees it is the wrong colour. He looked it up on his computer and said there are several shades of Lipari grey. One is called Lipari Quarzo. The one I have is Grigio Quarzo, but both have a paint code of 639.
Rang the dealer and they say they just go off the paint codes.
Has anyone else experineced this problem, and how can I get the right colour.......... according to the dealer 639 is 639.
