I have a 2002 'Black' 225 Coupe and I'm trying to source a replacement rear bumper. There are a couple on eBay for the same year etc but..

Q: Does anybody know if there were different "metallic black" paint codes? Mine looks almost brown in bright sunlight and black in the shade. Also, how to I find my paint code?

Thanks in advance.

So I have found my paint code and its Phantom Black Pearl: LZ9Y

Having asked a couple of eBayers for the paint code of the bumpers they have available, none seem to know. This makes makes purchasing rather difficult.

I've found a list of all BLACK paints available on MK1 TTs. Please can any help confirm which of the other black shades are metallic or not. This will at least reduce the risk of me buying the wrong colour bumper.

Raven Black Pearl: LZ9V = Metallic (Confirmed)
Brilliant Black: LY9B
Phantom Black Pearl: LZ9Y
Cherry Black: ????
Ebony Black: ????

Thanks again in advance.

So all the other blacks, apart from Brilliant Black, are "Perleffekt / Pearlescent".

And knowing Raven Black Pearlescent is metallic, then so all other pearlescent paints will be most likely be?
