Black, BK01, and at some point the code changed to 170.

Never heard it called Jet Black though

Jet Black was a later Metallic colour 298 as used on TurboX's

You could describe it as that but the colour, as far as I know, is "Black", colour code 170.

I believe that this may be the origin of the "Jet" Black that you refer to.....

I was told a while ago that the Saab black is a 'mixed' colour and contains a trace of white mixed with 'jet black'
I'm not saying this is definitely correct and would be interested to know if this is in fact the case.

Apparently so, 1.5%...
