You wont get a correct match from anyone except a specialist paint supplier (ie. one who supplies to the trade)
High street motofactors and the likes of halfords cannot guarantee a match(even if they have a matching code) and you dont know how old the paint is.
Metalic spray paints have to be made up shortly before they are used, not 6-12 months later when the mix has chemically aged and settled in the tin.

To find a good local suplier of paint, you could look through yellow pages or as a local SMART repairer where to source the paint from.
a tin of spray paint 400ml should be about 10-15, touchup kits are usually about 5 a touchup bottle.
