If I was you I would just go to / ring the main dealer (with the paint code) and get the touch up paint for your car from them. Its likely to be a closer match to your car than the stuff you get from Halfords.

I got some for my Laguna the other week and it only cost me just shy of eight quid. I had to order it, but it was there within a couple of days.

Have to agree that the Renault-supplied paint is a good match.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.

Halfords don't stock all of the Renault colours - I never did manage to get an 'Eclipse' touch-up kit for my last Laguna. When I got the new car and went looking for 'Nordic Green', I found it and bought it - but while I was there, I still had a look through for 'Eclipse' and they still didn't do it

Hi Lianne, I'd stick with Renault paints from the dealer, I've either never found Halfords/Holts to do the correct colour or if they do its not a very good match ... Nordic white, Illusion Green or Storm blue

Hope it helps

Edit ... always use the paint code ... the colour names usually mean very little unless your choosing the colour of your car from the paint samples.

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
