    Opel/Vauxhall Colour Chart (1991-2001)


    The list in the following post displays the Opel Code / Vauxhall Code : Paint Name (Years in Charts). If there is more than one code, I've separated it with a comma. Some names are in German but I've tried to use the English ones wherever possible, and bear in mind it seems some paints were renamed at times (e.g. Flame Red = Magma Red). The date tagged on the end merely shows what year charts the paint is on to give a rough indication as to what year the paints were used (although don't take this as gospel, its probably not particularly accurate).



    This example shows Opel Code 489 / Vauxhall Code 68L = Champagne Metallic; which was most likely used from 1996 onwards.
