    Paint Code?

    Would anyone happen to know the paint code is for the Radiant Silver on the 2018 XTS? I have look for the label that would tell me and I cannot find it. I want to order some Dr. Colorchip. Thanks!

    WA636R. Duplicolor calls it Switchblade Silver. A Gmparts site also calls it Switchblade Silver. My 2015 is the same color as your 2018. It’s what I use. I believe the paint code on our rpo label is 17.

    There are often multiple names for the same color used across multiple models in GM's portfolio. The GM brochures are the most creative, (Metallic Pea, Newborn Diaper Brown, etc.) but the RPO code is the best source for any color match to a vendor's paint code.

    The dealer or your mechanic will be able to order the color using your VIN.

    Thanks for all the info! ccclarke, That product you mentioned looks pretty easy to apply. I may order it instead of Dr. Colorchip. Cheaper in price also!

    Paint code info for Radiant Silver Metallic is Color Code GAN/ Touch up paint number WA-636R. Give this to dealer and they can order the paint.
