400 Sport wheels ...Paint Code/colour

Post by RRB » Tue Jun 11, 2019 9:28 am

As the title .... I need to get one wheel refurbed and need the paint code, can anyone help?

Not surprisingly the dealer was no help, and I have emailed JLR customer support and awaiting their reply....but I reckon the learned on here might be quicker :D

I had all mine refurbed earlier this year.
I'd kerbed 3, so decided on the full set.

I was also unable to get code from dealer, but my detailer said colour would be matched by the wheel specialist he uses. They did a great job.

Well here is the reply direct from JLR HQ......Unbelievable Jeff ! How can they not know what the code is for the colour??


Thank you for your email.

I have received a response from our Engineering Team this morning in regards to your request for the paint code for your alloys, regrettably they have advised that this information is not available.

Please accept my apologies that I am unable to assist you in the way you envisaged, should you require any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours sincerely

They buy in the wheels from external suppliers, who presumably do know the paint codes they use. Jaguar knows the codes of the paint they themselves put on.

"I am unable to assist you" ... "should you require further assistance"

Such a common modern expression!!
