Thanks, but it is the really dark gray, almost black.

Cheers

Hi Paul

There was one other combo which you don't see very often. The Series 2 VY Calais had a carbon-fibre type finish on the centre console section around the satin black. I've only seen it a couple of times, so I don't know if it was the standard finish or not.

Hi Jet-6

This question has been asked many times and it seems that no-one has the paint on the shelf as a ready mix, nor can it be purchased from Holden as a touch-up.

You would need to go to an auto paint supplier, who has a catalogue of all the different interior and exterior colours for each model. Any reputable paint supplier should be able to help here.

If you can get the colour matched (and the problem here is that we all know it's called Dark Tempest, but we don't know the paint code for that colour), you need to have it mixed in a satin finish.

I think it's probably time one of us actually went out and bought some of this stuff, just so that we can tell everybody else what that colour code number is.
