Yep, all pretty confusing. I got in touch with the parts dept at the Local Vauxhall stealers and dark ruby red metallic is Peugeot bright red, go figure. The dark metallic ruby red code is GDU, which is now the Peugeot code ELM. I have ordered a 2 pack touch up from the above for £10.14, so will have a see when it arrives.

Fingers crossed. Failing that, there is a trade paint shop nearby that apparently can mix me some up from the chassis number, so all is not lost.

I have just checked the tyre pressure tag and it bears the markings "ELMD.." so I am more reassured.

Thats good. The PSA/GM parts are still a bit confusing while they are changing still. 😀👍🏻

it's only going to get more confusing under the Stellantis umbrella, including Chrysler, Jeep & Fiat.

Very True. It will be forums like this that help solve the issues.

Yep, it is the correct paint; Bright Red code ELM.
