MAZDA MX-5 MIATA PAINT COLORS

This info comes from a site called PaintScratch.com, sellers of touch-up kits and paint packages that match original factory colors. All I've done is compiled the paint codes for each year - it's up to you to check your car and see what matches.

You can find your color by simply opening up your driver door and, on the info sticker on the door jamb, looking for a two- or three-digit paint code.

There are some other special colors listed (late additions, limited-production, etc.) that I don't yet have codes for, or that I'm unsure of the code number for. They're listed "as-is" for the time being.
