Yep I KNOW that colour. My work AU1 s/wagon was that colour.
(Since the bastards have made me drive a VX2 Exec and now a VZ Acclaim).

I have often thought a cheap mod would be to just spray them.

its a dark metallic green....but not as dark as heritige green, but not as light as that other ugly green the au's came in

I'll have a look at the colour code...


It looks like to me a mixture of Polynesian green and Oxford green mixed together. Looks nice though dude.

data mine, my EL is the same colour as yours and i LOVE it as well. yeh called amaretto and its an AU colour. i think most hybrid ELs (All?) are painted AU colours.

and its nowhere near mocha foam when parked next to each other, much nicer IMO

Nope, not all were painted in Au series colours - I wasnt even aware that some of the late EL hybrids had gotten Au paint colours, but it makes sense as they got almost anything else.

I think oxford green, amaretto, regency, galaxy and a few more were carried over from the EL onto AU. Our AUII is regency red (awesome colour!!) and it was on EL's.

I have always thought that an EF or EL XR would look sweet as in black.
