Identify your car color code

The only way to accurately order touch-up paint from Aha! is to know the color code for your vehicle.

All vehicles carry a color identification plate that is located in various places on the vehicle depending on the model. Use the picture below to locate the color identification plate for your vehicle.

Sometimes these codes can be tricky to find. For example, on some cars, the color code is located in the engine compartment as shown below, but it actually is under the boot carpet next to the spare tire. These locations are starting points.  They can even vary on the same models!

We mix the touch up paint according to the color code, NOT color names. However, if you have problem confirming the color code is right, we can assist to find out by just having your car make/model and color name.

Other useful resources

Your Owner's manual is also helpful. The owner's manual does not tell you what the color code is, but it should tell you where the code is located. If you do not have the Owner's s manual, or the code on your vehicle is illegible, contact your dealer with your VIN number, and they should be able to provide you with the information.
