where exactly is the paint code located in a 156 (1999)? I've looked in the boot and under the bonnet and can't see anything obvious. I searched the forums and even found a pic of the paint code plate but can't seem to see a similar one.

Thanks

Andy

couldn't see it, most of the underside of the boolid is lined anyway.

RHS edge of the bootlid.

Should be there, unless someone has removed it at some point.

Isn't Alfa Red 130?
yep, 130BB, but there are several different shades of 130BB so you need to get the right one for your car by comparing with the paint charts.

Well I've checked in daylight, no sign of a paint code in the boot lid area, no marks of a plate ever having been there. No sign of the paint code in the bonnet/engine bay area either.

Weird, makes me a bit suspicious. Glad I have the service history from the only previous owner which includes lots of bills and services all at the only alfa dealer I lived near when I bought it.

It's only a sticker so could easily have been removed...or resprayed I guess!
