well the bumper got painted with code FAR and once on the car, it was totally different to the bonnet an wings, .FAH (Primrose yellow) is said to be a "Water based yellow" as the Trophy Yellow (FAR) is more of a thicker/deeper - as i call " it looks like poster paint and the primrose yellow looks more like a water paint colour yellow, thats the only way i can describe it
might be able to see it in this picture

best thing to do is hope u got the paint right or take ur petrol cover to a bodyshop an ask if they can match up the colour, had to do that on Alice's car as the bodyshop got it wrong and didnt believe me when on the fone, they took te petrol cover and matched it up, said i was right and the took the bumper this morning @ 11am and was painted today and sorted in the oven, gettin it back 2morrow fingers crossed, i might get both paint codes from that ebay link and try it out, need to spray new side skirts :D
hope u get urs sorted soon . :D :D

course they wont... and where ever you go, it wont match. Park 2 TY zed's next to each other and they'll be different colours!

The code for TY is FAR - but thats just gives the "recipe" to make the colour up. but their are soooo many different factors that will change the shade of the colour.

Even the sun with fad the colour of the car! Why to you think when you have any work done on the car they spray more of the car then needed to blend the colour in
