I'm guessing that the paint code label should be under the bonnet somewhere. I haven't had a chance to look yet but try there first.

The paint code is on a sticker at the hinges of your drivers door.

I also have the deep purple, here is a photo of the sticker on my b pillar. Can't deduce a paint code from it View attachment 54

I did find a code es71 stamped under the bonnet top left as you face from the front of the car but can't relate that on any paint code sites either.

Wow amazing what you can get from the vin number, cheers.

Had a google of kbq as the paint code and it does seem to be valid.

I too have been trying to get a touch up pen for a chip in paintwork from a stone.
Citroen don't yet stock KBQ even though over a year old.
So frustrating
Anyone have a clue where could get one please ?
Thanks all
:)

I got mine from ebay - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/391111672292

Just £4.04 inc post. Select 'touch-up bottle' and include your Citroen colour code & name in the Message to Seller. I ordered mine on Christmas Eve and arrived today - can't fault that for service.
Can you give us an update when you use it Vacuman? Curious to know if it's a good colour match?

Cheers,

Jono

Might not be for a while....no chips or scratches yet thankfully. With any 'brush-on' paint the colour will not be the issue (within reason) but the finish. It's difficult at the best of times to paint in a scratch that's gone through the colour without it showing as such - unless you are blessed with a very tiny brush and super-steady hands.

But at a glance it looks fine for stone chips, door edges etc.
