Any paint supplier should have that if it is a factory color.
You got the car info so it should be just a matter of them looking it up for you.
The real question will be paint cost. Most "value" line's don't have a good match for some of the exotic colors and you'll have to go with a quality line to get the exact match.

Be advised that colour chips online are not very accurate......all depends on your monitor.

I highly recommend you read the following link "Basics of Basics" Color choice and paint purchase

DO NOT choose your color from a color chip.

thanks for the tips i would never plan on choosing a color just by a chip. the chip online was to photoshop the car to get an idea. im looking at a few different colors and to see a generated photo would help a little.
