Re: Paint Codes

There seems to be quite a bit of confusion between paint names. This is not only on this site but on paint manufacturers sites.
It must be remembered that a paint will be named in its country of manufacture. Therefore Renault names will be in French.
For my car, a Renault Megane Scenic 1.6 16v with a paint code of TEF43 the English name for the paint is
Blue Ink, French name Bleu Encre.
This obviously applies to all the names and as names can be misconstrued in translation it is preferable to rely on the codes as TE = Lacquer and F43 = the Colour Ink Blue/Bleu Encre.

It is quite simple really.
Currently in KingWhiskers's garage:
Megane Scenic 1.6 16v Petrol Expression+
