Finding your Subaru Paint Code

Two Tone Color Combination 3M6
Atlantic Blue Pearl 33A
Granite Gray Opal Clearcoat 35S

If your car has two colors, you will see the two tone color code. When you look on our site at your year, make and model, you can see a listing of the two tone color codes and the corresponding paint colors.

Subaru, 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.
