hey guys just wanted to add to this...

although the paint code says like WA8555 the real code is just 8555 the WA isnt part of the code (or at least not important)

also the two digit codes like 41U are more like "dealer codes" if you gave that to a paintshop they probably couldnt pull it up...

each paint color as you all can see has two codes one is the WA number and the two digit/letter combo... both are "right" and both could eventually get you your color depending on where you went...but i know for sure that in the dupont software we use at my shop if you typed in the whole WA number nothing would come up... you have to just use the code after the WA...

dont know if this made sense or helped but there ya go

Good point Killcobalt...we use the Dupont system as well and the WA does not work when mixing colours, same as with pontiac. I had to paint a grand am before and I tried and tried to find the right paint formula for it but the system wouldn't recognize it till I took the WA off

I was told that the color for my car was "Granite Blue" but the chart shows "Arrival Blue". Did GM change the names of some of the color's?

So, My paint code is listed as 928L (stealth gray metallic) but my car is Blue. I would have guessed it should be called Arrival Blue by looking at the color charts earlier in the thread. I bought the car when it was a year old and it appears to be the original paint job (sills, trunk, engine bay are all blue). Did they name the paint that badly or is there something else I'm missing here?

Looking to get an LT w/fogs or an SS 2.4 fascia and I'll need to make sure I get the correct paint. Also, if anyone knows of a used one in this color and either style, I may be interested.

Anybody know the colour of my car. I can't seem to pin point the exact colour it is. Any help would come in handy. By the way it's a 2009.
