Well, telling us what color is actually is would be a good start. Then perhaps the VIN plate photo rotated without the glare? It looks like red from the small area around the plate.

According to this site:
Honda Insight Touchup Paint Codes, Image Galleries, Brochure and TV Commercial Archives

Tango Red Pearl Code: R 525 P

Crimson Pearl Code: R 543 P

Milano Red Code: R81

If yours is not metallic or pearlescent, it's probably Milano Red

All 2nd generation Insights were made in Japan. I doubt there were JDM market exclusive colors.

I have an old Honda Odyssey (a big minivan by European standards) the exterior is called Granite Green Metallic n the US and Fern Green Metallic in Canada. But the color code is the same.

Hi thanks,was in Halfords, doesn't look like my paint at all,( judging by colour on tin etc- might be wrong)some one was careless with a shopping trolley I guess and left a scratch in the bumper, anyway I'll take another trip to Halfords tomorrow and double check 👍
