The paint code for cyclones is EVT its a citroen/peugeot paint used on wheels Halfords in Chilwell nr nottingham found it for me by checking for peugeot wheel colours on their computer and then looking in the colour book. The guy even come out to my car with the book and compared it, and it is spot on. I brought a can and it matches perfectly to a spare cyclone. Pic to follow.

Not a close up as the original. But one of my virtually new set, it's all about the flecks in the OE colour.

That close up one does look good but nice to see a fuller picture that possibly hasn't been flashed when picture taken and doesn't look as close.



Edit: Found one, excuse the watermarks but I didn't wash them. Funny that Laugh

I use TITAN SILVER all-day every-day, re-furbing scuffs.
It's quite a bit flatter than the original colour, not that i'd be that bothered though LOL
