ID/DS Colour codes

Here you'll find a list of all the colours and their codes that were available through the years on all DS and ID models (and on the SM) sorted according to the colour code number.

Because the colours that were available differed from year to year, I have also included lists in which the colours are sorted according to their availability in the different model years. Note that in the early years of the DS the rims could be delivered in other colours then just grey. Also note that the colour of the roof of a DS could be different from the colour of the body work . ID's always had an unpainted roof !

Information on which body colour could be combined with which roof and rim colour is available, but I have not put that on this web-site.
