whats up with this?
Saturday, January 08, 2011 3:12 PM
well i checked the VIN of my 03 sunfire on compnine, and lets say theres a few small things that dont line up, my car is Ultra Silver Metallic, compnine says : EXTERIOR COLOR,PRIMARY,MAJESTIC AMETHYST METALLIC (95U)

and this: MIRROR,O/S LH REM RH DIRECT CTL,PAINTED PAINTED O/S MIR(D35), i take it this means i have painted mirrors? wel i dont have those either

whats up with this? maybe i screw up in Compnines system?

also my insurance company claims my car is an 03 sunfire coupe GT, and its not, 03+ sunfire didnt even come GT did they?

I did the vin check posted in the other thread as well, and also had the same color code pop up.
The insurance thing is weird. Could just be your insurance company.
Your mirrors may have been replaced, but then again, the site might be wrong, i have no idea, but I am curious as well.
According to that site, my cavalier is one of two that have the exact same options in 03.

You're right. Sunfires never came from the factory with painted mirrors.

I have the same issue when I enter the VIN for my Vibe. The color is Liquid Platinum Metallic (silver), but according to CompNine, it's Blue Frost Metallic / Impression Blue / Prestige Blue Metallic. Obviously, silver is nowhere near any shade of blue so I don't know what the deal with that is. The weirdest part is that the paint code, 20U, is correct, but yet it lists the entirely wrong color. I have read that this site is not 100% accurate all the time though, so I guess some discrepancies are to be expected.

Yes, '03-'05 Sunfires in Canada came in GT form, however they did not come in GT form in the US, although some US '03-'05 Sunfires had all the same equipment that made them a GT in Canada, so while they were technically GTs, they were not badged / labeled as GTs in the US.

Does your Sunfire have any of the options Gary listed? If so, than that would explain why your insurance company refers to it as a GT .

As far as the color, the Amethyst in the color name from CompNine leads me to believe they are referring to a shade of purple, which just like in the case of my Vibe, is nowhere near Ultra / Liquid Silver Metallic. Again, I guess it's just a discrepancy that's to be expected.

You may want to ask your insurance company about that then because you could be getting charged more if they're considering it a GT when it's really not.

this would explain why mine came up a GT on my insurance even though its' not. the only thing mine came with was the aluminum rims. i think im in the same boat as you dxdean3
