Hey, I've got a silver/light grey 95 mx6 that says it is painted with J3 paint but all I can find in stores like Canadian Tire is K3 for 1995 Mazdas. These aren't the same colours are they. Plus the touch up paint listed for 95's doesn't seem to match exactly either too metallic-ish?

Anybody else with this colour?

Just to give you a reply, try asking the dealer. They should have all that info. When you get it, go somewhere else andbuy it cheeper.

I went to a dealer when I first got the car and got their J3 color match touch up paint. When I first applied it the color matched. However, after it dried, it looked a lot darker. After I went back to them to complain they said that that is the color paint that Mazda has to match that color code. They gave a hole bunch of crap about since the car being discontinued, they can't do anything about it.

It will be very tough to get a color that actually does match the stock paint.

Thanks guys

I've got that touch up paint already and it does look quite a bit darker and more metallic. Oh well I guess I'll wait a while and get a custom colour done sometime.:rolleyes:
