How to find the right paint color for your Honda

All Honda models have their paint code located on the service tag. Our list below highlights the typical spots, but the location of the service tag will vary depending on the model and year of your vehicle, so be sure to check in all of these locations:

Honda Paint Code Location
  • Look in the driver’s side door jamb
  • Check inside the engine bay near the firewall
  • Check on the firewall inside the engine bay
  • It may be located on the passenger’s side, in the middle, or on the driver’s side of the engine bay

The VIN sticker will typically be white however, in some models and years, it can be silver or black. If your Honda paint code is not in one of the locations above, simply call our customer service hotline at 971-770-2372 .

Understanding your Honda’s color code

Similar to other manufacturer’s Honda’s color codes are comprised of numbers and letters. However, unlike other makers, Honda codes can range anywhere from four to eight characters in length.

Honda Paint Code Location

Example: NH-731P

The code above represents NH-731P Crystal Black Pearl. Other examples include NH658P Graphite Pearl or NH-578 Taffeta White. Sometimes Honda codes have suffixes at the end, but these do not change the color. For instance, B-92P/B-92P-4/B-92P-1 all represent Nighthawk Black Pearl.

Locating the Honda color code on the manufacturer’s tag can take slightly longer than other manufacturers because it generally doesn’t have any prefixes or headings to identify it. However, it is usually located directly underneath the middle of the barcode.

What do you know about Honda?

Regularly ranking among the best car brands in the world, Honda’s business has changed significantly from the post-war bike manufacturer it started as in 1964. After becoming the first foreign vehicle to be manufactured in the U.S., Honda has grown from strength to strength.

Renowned for their long-lasting and reliable cars, Honda’s most popular models include the Civic, CR-V, Odyssey, and Pilot. Their metallic and pearl colors like NH-662P Sagebrush Pearl have become fan favorites in recent years, as the company continues to grow in popularity.

See what our customers are saying:

M.R. from Glastonbury, CT likes her Desert Mist Metallic YR-538: It is evident to me that this seller is very knowledgeable about his products and explained to my satisfaction a few questions I had about the paint. This company was very consumer friendly to me. I have yet to use the paint due to either weather or availability of car but it looks perfect. I strongly suspect that I would use this company again should the need arise.

We pride ourselves on quality products, competitive prices and outstanding customer satisfaction.
