Color question

Hi guys,

I am looking to buy one of those touch up tubes to hide a small scratch on the back of my boxster. I am not 100% sure of which blue I need, I happen to have the exact same boxster that you can see in the picture below. Would someone be kind enough to tell me how this blue is called? Should be either Lapsis blue or cobalt blue (ruled out midnight blue).

Thanks in advance for your help!

Here is the picture:

It looks like lapis to me, but you should really go with your paint code. Cobalt is quite a bit lighter. Here is a link to another thread that shows a pictures of where to get your paint code off the sticker attached to underside of front trunk lid.

Call suncoast or sunset and give them your VIN#. That's the only way to be sure.

Dealers can do a lookup on your VIN# and tell you what colour of your car is when it came from the factory.
