    Hi does anyone know the paint code for the electric blue 5 alpine(not sure of its correct name), and also would you now if under the bonnet would have been a different colour (i:e graphite grey / silver)

    Mine is Blue under the bonnet, engine bay, sills; floor, boot.
    Get a good paint shop to do a colour test.

    Looking at mine the code in white paint under the bonnet on the nr side inner wing is 485 NOT 462.
