No worries. The only issue, that's been stated before, is that even colours that are exactly the same can look off on different on a car, due to varying shades of the original paint Being mixed.

EGED is the one you need

I think MOGE is metallic and EGED is pearlescent according to a few google results

i'd seen that but it's not very good to be honest, there's varying shades of some colours - china blue particularly

that may well be, but the codes rarely varied even if there was a very obvious difference, so its as good as it can be!

colour of the primer used varied which will affect it too.

i think the general gist of this thread is:

china blue in p2 306's is M0GE and metallic
china blue in p3 306's is EGED and pearlescent

they look miles different when side by side so fitting a p2 china bonnet will end in tears on your p3 china gti6, as i learned, and luke by the sounds of it

The real mystery to me here is that the car it came off looks to be a phase 3. Maybe the above rules are correct for a 6 but not for the other models, or more likely there was a crossover period.

Thats why I'm so confused,if were working on the premise that phase 2 was MOGE and metallic and EGED is phase 3 and Pearlescent then that car should have an EGED paint code not MOGE. Perhaps the paint code didn't change with the phases and was either a separate factory option or had a crossover period.

Thing is as allready mentioned you can get the totally correct paint and it's still out.
It doesn't look that far out imo, I really don't think there different paint codes, I may be wrong but there will generally always be a slight difference unless you get it off a car painted at the same time at the factory.

Sorry, forgot to get back on this thread. Strange, but the old peugeot paint codes don't even come up on my system.
