Finding your Scion Paint Code
Finding your Scion Paint CodeLocation of Scion Paint Code
Scion is manufactured by Toyota and shares many of the same color codes. Scion made is pretty easy to find the color code. On all models, there is an color ID plate on the drivers door jamb. When you locate it, it will have the letters C/TR and then the paint code follows. You can match this color code up with what you find on our site. You may see something like:
C/TR 3P1 FA09
So the color code is 3P1 and the FA09 has nothing to do with the color code. These additional codes can cause confusion but they are really just interior option codes.
Scion, like all manufacturers, uses the exact same color across many models and then will have a different color name for each model. It's the same paint! This is why the color code is so important to order the correct paint.
For example, 3P1 above we call Impulse Red Metallic Clearcoat. It could also be called Red Metallic Clearcoat, Wine Metallic Clearcoat, etc. depending on what the marketing department decided to call it. You can also find your color code by calling your dealer with your VIN. They can bring up the exact vehicle you bought and tell you the color code.
