    There is a choice of two types of paint code on a Renault 20 Series 2 (all full imports). A stencilled code on one of the wheel arches, or a label (black lettering on a white background) on (usually) the right-hand wheel arch/spring tower. (See attached)

    The 1983 model year has a D-prefix chassis number.

    Usual proviso, if the car has had a big hit in the past, the stencilled paint code may not be there, same with the label. Usually though, the label is fairly tenacious.

    Australia also had a fairly limited range of colours available for the Series 2:-
    319 – Appliance White
    154 – Beige Metallic
    620 – Silver Metallic
    918 – Green Metallic

    Thanks Simon, for a moment I didn't think I was going to get a reply.Mine must be Appliance White ( doesn't sound very exiting)

    White (the imaginative English language name used by Renault for the car) is actually the best colour. Being solid rather than any of the supergloss metallic colours, which either faded, went dandruffy once the clearcoat aged, or both. Also the blue trim is so much better than the alternative beige velour with some of the other colours.
