    Color Match Help

    So I have been trying to find what color my 05 ARC is and have been having no success. I have looked for the paint code on the car but the tag on the inside of the door only shows tire specifications. Does anyone know what color this is and the paint code so that I can order some touch up paint?

    None of these seem to be the color of the car. This list is from the Saab Archives here: Color database

    The "Body Colour" and "Trim Colour" codes are supposed to be listed at the bottom of the tag referred to - not so

    Here are the only tags in the driver's door:

    Neither one appears to have anything about body or trim which is why I am confused and having a hard time determining the color.

    Apologies for the low quality picture, but the first one only gives tire specifications. I have seen pictures of tags online that show the body and trim along with it, is there another location where this information can be found on the car?

    I am - and the WIS is confused. Selecting US as "Market" and "English" as setting in the WIS, is a tag as you have seen picture of, the one to be expected on the B-beam. In the WIS section "General, Plates and labels", is there not given any other location for the codes in question. Does most likely not apply for your 9-5, but the label you have seen picture of, is in our 9-3 located on the inner side of the glove box door.

    Check under the hood. Mine has a small black label next to the driver-side gas strut that supports the hood.
    Check page 262 of the manual: http://saabworld.net/downloads/saab-...ers-manual-58/

    It's a bit difficult to tell the color from pictures but yours looks like Smoke Beige.

    I had found where the color code should be like you said from the manual earlier today, but when I checked there was no plate. Luckily it seems like there is no question that it is Smoke Beige (295) after googling some more images of Saabs with that color. Thanks you for the replies and I will be ordering some touch up paint!
