ASC+T : Automatic Stability Control + Traction control ; Gen 1 only.

This is a great thread. Thanks Bigripper!

I didn't see ASC+T : Automatic Stability Control + Traction control on your list for Gen 2.

My Gen 2, 2008 MC has ASC+T according to the factory data sheet and an ASC OFF button just forward of manual shifter.

I believe Horizon Blue has been discontinued; a couple of years ago I think...

Hello All,

I see Blazing Red is missing from the list.
Research shows the official designation is B63

Nevermind, I figured it out. They're no longer R codes, but F codes: F56 for the 3-door hardtop, and F55 for the 5-door hardtop.

Not 100% sure but I believe Midnight Black and Midnight Black Metallic are the same. So MB would be your answer. Thanks for sending the link to the library of motoring that’s helpful.

This is a very informative thread! I'm new here and was wondering what people were talking about with the "R" numbers. etc.
Now I know that mine is: 04 PW MC R50.
Cool!

Note that Gen 1 and Gen 2 cars are R series. Gen 3 cars are F series...

New Color Code?

My recently ordered JCW 2dr HT https://www.northamericanmotoring.co...t-ordered.html comes in a "melting silver" base color. I didn't see that one on your list.
