On 1992 BX TGS Estate Paint code is 5 letters not 3 and is ETWMR. The car is definitely Grey Graphite Metallic.

Perhaps the MR are generic suffix letters...? Like the M might be for "metallique"

As per my original post, the last 2 small letters are a batch code reference.

I don't think there is one - I just use a generic satin black. Problem is because the mesh is aluminium (?) the paint can just fall off. If you're stripping it back to metal, before a repaint use an etch primer. It's a tricky job because the whole thing is bonded together (as you probably know!?)

It's not aluminium - I know as my 16v ones are rusting! It's a sort of satin gun metal colour, rather than a black. At least it is on the 16v and I'm trying to match what colour mesh a White BX would have.
Whilst satin black is a good choice, I tried it on my red BX and it sort of looked 'pimped'.

My paint must fall off for some other reason then - it might have something to do with the fact that the idiot that had it before me painted them with Airfix gold enamel - with a (crap) brush! I'm hoping to get it all done professionally at some point - I'd be interested to know the correct colour if you find out.

Thank you everyone who have posted replies.

I've checked my front inner wing and have found ETMcA.

According to the paint link ETM is Gris Axinite. Not sure what the cA is at the end.

Does that tie in with other peoples findings?
