URGENT - which color is my LML ?

Postby mike.76 » Fri Mar 10, 2017 11:32 am

hello all!
my question sounds stupid, I know...
but since I need to order new parts (side panel and mudguard) so I really need to be sure.
On the papers I have (the owner manual), the color have been writen by hand and it says "grey metallic".
On the color table of LML I found so far, there are 2 colors that could match;
"grigio metallizzato" (grey metallic) or "argento" (silver)
Please look at the pics in the attachment and tell me what you think.
Thanks a lot!!!!

Silver i'd say.think the grey is more darker.I did paint a door mirror on the wifes Peugeot 206 with a can of silver xmas spray from poundland! Still a perfect match 3 years on! Cheers

Thanks Nick!
I think its silver too. Its crazy that you dont get any information about the color out of the doc you get with your scooter... maybe. Maybe I'm missing the right doc, I'm the second owner.
Maybe The chassis number could help?
Any idea how I could find out what the color is with the chassis number? Who could I ask?

It may depend on the year/model of your bike as to what colour was available for each model.
I have a sales blurb for the 2014 range & there is no silver or grey option & not all models are available in all colours - not very helpful maybe, but have you tried asking a main dealer to see if there is a code in the Vin or if they hold old copies of the advertising material that show the colour choices?
You may be lucky & find one on *bay you could sneak a look at.
If all else fails, you can always get a colour match made up & put in a spray can - I don`t know where you are, but there is a paint supplier in Colchester (Gramic Supplies I think) that does offer that service, so I guess there must be others around.
Best of luck with that.

I just found a thread on here by Lincwolf & that gives a list of the paint Codes - search LML Paint Codes.
If you Google lml paint colours you`ll see loads & I guess yours is "Argentino Silver"
Cheers. :D

For your information: the color ist silver metallic (color code 8002M).
To repair my LML 200 (year 2015), I could order the painted body parts on ebay Italy quite.
It was a gamble, but the color was a match.
Thank you all for your replies!

on my scooter, inside the glove box I found a sticker with serial numbera and the name of the paint (in my case "grey m").
