Haven't you got a paint code somewhere?
Or find out from the VIN.

I've checked the sticker but am not sure it's correct

Paint code 279 - Steel grey
Trim code K03 - Grey

The paint is a silver/grey but with a hint of gold

The seats are an odd colour somewhere between black and brown

Gaz, the seats are brownish because Karl made it so... :D :D :corn:

I know I've had a few hairy moments, thanks to Karl.
p.s. thanks Karl.

Yeah that's 279 and your seats are likely a 'charcoal' colour as that was the usual interior colour for 279

So that is steel grey, it's been described as meant colours, gold, silver etc but never grey lol

Thanks for clearing that up though.

I'm planning on stripping back the seats, repairing a tear and re-dying them black sometime
