    VIN number, then compnine.com, RPO code research, to find the OE color code.
    Send me the VIN in a PM message & I'll post the color code if ya want.

    paintscratch.com to look at possible color options for the car.

    The Purple hue we NBMers get in certain light angles is hard to get the lighting just right to capture on Camera.. I've even been mistaken for black before in pics..
