the paint match is nothing to do with halfords. they use the same paint mixing database as a professional would do to get a basic match. the sprayers normally adjust it so that its perfect but they normally spray a larger area than needs repairing so it matches much better.

On my old car i got paint from halfords and they matched it exactly to my car, the mix on the screen was slightly different so they just added more colour till it was the same...so yeah i wouldnt worry where you get it from if your gettin it mixed up then you cant really go wrong.

Halfords do not sell the colour for my car, I have now been into four of them, although some spotty teenager said that due to honda and rover being connected the rover kingfisher blue is the same shade. I am not going with this and so I am still on the hunt :(

Most halfords will mix the colour up for you.

It's simple. Get the code off the inside passenger door. Take it to a spray shop, tell them to make up that colour. Job done.
