Try this website: https://www.chipex.co.uk/

You put in your VIN and usually they can match automatically If not, you give them the colour code from your car along with make, model and year and they produce it for you. Their system works well and the colour match is guaranteed. If you follow the kit instructions it works superbly well.

So T Cut is a surface scratch remover and doesn't need to be in the colour of the car as its basically a rubbing compound which removes the top layer of paint which has the scratch in it. If its a deep scratch then its not suitable for this.

Deep scratches or stone chips do really need filling or at least priming and painting however if the Citroen Spicy Orange colour isn't available yet then you'll often get a very close match from other manufacturers. For example my old C4 Cactus was a very deep red but I found a really close match from a Renault colour range I could use and you wouldn't know the difference.

PS My C3 roof is in Spicy Orange so if you find a site selling the colour let me know :)
