Halfords do quite a few of the colours, but by no means all of them. I went in looking for an Eclipse one when I got my first bad stone chip over three years ago, and again recently while trying to 'tart up' the car to get it past the lease return inspection. Both times, loads of colours but no 'Eclipse.' There was a sign up saying they could mix paint to order though.

I've bought the Nordic Green one in preparation for the inevitable happening on the new one. Assuming that it's a decent match, it's a nifty little kit for a tenner, consisting of:
A fibreglass 'nib' dirt and rust remover tool
A bottle of primer in the appropriate colour
A bottle of paint
A bottle of lacquer (metallic/pearlescent kits only)
A polishing tool for buffing up between coats
A plastic case to put them all in.
The bottles are 12.5ml each, and have both a brush and a 'nib' to choose from, depending on the type of damage you're trying to patch up.
Currently in Horatio's garage:
2010 Laguna III Initiale.
