mazda 929 1988-1995

For many years, Mazda had built large cars for Japanese consumption, with both rotary and piston engines. It took them some time to get up the courage, but for 1988 the company let it all hang out and decided to release the luxurious 929 worldwide. This turned out to be both a good and bad decision at the same time, as you'll see.

For the North American market, there were two generations of the 929:

1988-1991: Model "HC", the original "aero" style
1992-1995: Model "HD", the sleek "organic" style

Both will be discussed in detail, in reports arriving soon. Watch this space!

<span style="color:#666D6B">████
45 – Light Opal Gray Mica Clearcoat (1992-1994)

NOTE 1: You can find the paint code for your car by opening the driver's door and looking for a sticker on the door post with the two-digit code listed on it. Two-tone cars, naturally, will list both the primary and secondary color codes.

NOTE 2: Mica is simply Mazda's term for what most people would call a pearlescent or "pearl-coat" finish - the paint carries flecks of mica or mother-of-pearl that cause the color to "glow" (for lack of a better description) in sunlight. Metallic finish is similar, but uses flecks of metal instead that cause the paint to just sparkle rather than glow. Solid finishes are just that - pure color with no enhancements.

NOTE 3: If you have any additions or corrections to this list, please feel free to reply here or PM me. Keep in mind that this list represents codes for the North American market, though I suspect international production (for the Luce and/or Sentia) should be similar - they were all built in the same plant, after all. Source for the color codes is the incredibly useful PaintScratch.com site. Also, if anyone knows a good site with codes for interior colors, please let me know!

Sorry, I should have put that in the original post (and I will now!). It's usually on a sticker inside the driver's door post - only the two-digit codes will be listed. If the car is a two-tone, you'll also see the code for the secondary color as well.
