Also star silver 3. Think Halfords only do 1, for an accurate colour match, go to Vauxhall

3 different types of star silver paint? whats the point? no wonder GM are losing money.
Star silver is an old colour that Vauxhall have used. The updated it and used it up until about 1998/99 when they brought it up to date with current paint technologies and the colour although similar is actually different.

Strange enough, there are two shades of Breeze Blue about and it's only been about 5 years.

Had a similar prob with a black saphire touch up stick. Took it back to the Halfords and asked them to come and look at the difference in the paint. They refunded me and got sum kid to come and get the touch up paint off which shows what kind of quality paint it is anyway.
