Only one question mark is necessary to identify your question.

The colour code should be found on the VIN plate and I believe it can be found on the left strut tower mount.

LaterZ!

Its on there for sure. The colour code consists of 2 numbers then a letter.

So for example, mine is Urban Grey Metallic = 45A

No only is the VIN plate on the left strut tower next to the strut bolts. It'll also say "color code" next the the color code.

You should get your eyes checked out, they may need adjusting.

Your VIN doesn't hold your paint code. The metal plate that's on your driver side strut tower is where you FIND the VIN AND PAINT CODE. When you see the metal plate (looks like blasted aluminum, granted your engine bay is clean) look for the printed words "color code" on the bottom left side. Then you will see 2 numbers and 1 letter. EX. 45A

OP, look at your VIN plate.

It will say COLOUR CODE or PAINT CODE and have two numbers and a letter. That is what you need.
