Pop your VIN up John and I'll double check the code for you. There can be variants of the same code used on PSA vehicles and some of these can have different finishes (Pearlescent, Metallic etc.)

Ok, according to Citroen and your car specs, the code is KBN - RA YELLOW PAINT. It is non-metallic.

So here:

It does require a light grey undercoat first and the finishes can be different as pointed out.

Bear in mind colours shown on a PC or phone / tablet display may look different to what they are in reality.
