Default Paint codes

Is there a complete list of OEM paint codes for 2003 Spectra anywhere?

Specifically, i'm looking for the code that is on the blue Spectra's. I don't know how else to explain it. Not even sure of the name of the blue color. It's just...blue. <---Almost like this color

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. Next, find the colors for your vehicle and look at the color codes shown for all possible colors. Write these down and go out to you vehicle and check for the correct code. If the color of your car doesn't seem to match the color shown on your computer but the color code matches, then you have correctly identified the color.

BE AWARE
Kia has 2 Cobalt Blues. Yes 2. One is coded 4c and is dark like the night sky. The other is coded T3 and is like the blue of Thomas the Tank Engine.

2 colours, 2 codes, same name. The usual Picanto (like mine) in the UK is T3 not 4c.

Do not assume you have the right code. I could not find my code anywhere on the car - looked in all the usual. Phone Kia and give them all the car details VIN number and Reg mark. They will tell you what the code is.

I learned the hard way. I have a dirty dark blue splodge to T cut tomorrow, and Halfords don't want to talk to me, coz I accused them of making a mistake. Ooops.

Hi guys, planning on getting this "B7 Rally Blue Metallic" but want to get it at halfords. Does anyone know what the universal code is as a lot of places use codes such as M700 etc. Thanks

Hello Extremicus if you are looking for your kia Rio blue the information above will give you original colour code location and the there are spray companies on Ebay who make up the codes and sell by the can.
