Paint Code

I'm trying to find the paint code for on a 2008 Impala. I think my color might be Bright White but when I went to buy it I found that there are 3 different shades of white and two look the same. I cannot find the paint code on the car anywhere. I looked in glove box all the doors trunk and hood.

I think it was on the left for me, but you will clearly see the SPID label, paint code I think is on the bottom left.

Hi Steve620,

Were you able to find the correct paint code? I see there were some great replies to your query, so I wanted to double check with you. If you're still having trouble locating it, please send me a direct message with your VIN and I'd be happy to get that information for you.

Not "where" to find it, but that is another way to get your paint code. VIN build sheet tells you an awful lot.

Either you is lesdixic, or they made a change in the later model years, all my 06-07's have it on the driver side.

Paint Code

Thanks guys, I should've have just checked here first. Wasted my time taking decklid cover off and clearing the glove box out, when all I had to do was pull up the trunk mat on the driver side.
