Paint Codes for Buick

The paint codes for all Buick vehicles are located on the service parts identification sticker which varies depending on your year and model. We have provided a list of these locations below. Newer vehicles have a silver label - older vehicles have a white "paper" label as in our example below. Most GM paint codes begin with a "WA" on our site, while most cars and trucks show a "BC/CC    U". BC/CC stands for basecoat/clearcoat, and the U stands for upper or body color. 

A two toned GM vehicle will show both the upper (U) and lower (L) body color listed. 


In this example, "U" designates the only color on this vehicle (Upper/Body).  391E is what you're looking for.  Add a WA to the beginning of it and you're done.  "WA391E" is the code.

Please note: GM uses the same color across many models, yet they may be named differently! Don't be confused by this - as long as your color code is correct it is the right paint.
