Default Leather Matching and trim Codes

I have a few very small abrasions on my front seats- no actual tears, but it has taken the top layer of the leather off and leaves the brown color underneath. not is not much worse than the discoloration that happens on the drivers side from sliding in and out of the car.

I have no doubt that one the DIY repair kits would work fine. My problem is trying to match.

My trim code is SEL and on some sites I get a direct translation to Barley and in photographs the "Barley" looks just like mine, but the champagne also looks like mine. I am not sure if there was a model change and therefore color name change, but be that a it may.

Several questions

The SEL seems to get lost in color charts online- for example one place IO have gone

Leather Repair Kits .com - Repair Kit Jaguar Colors


shows barley that looks considerable darker than what i have and they use numbers vs. the trim codes and I have found no conversion chart.

Below are 2 cars- one interior color is called Barley and the other is Champagne and is there a difference?

2007 Jaguar 8061E | Texas Cars Direct



Any guidance will be highly appreciated.

Just for your interest, I have the normal chrome peeling on the door locks in the front doors (inside of my car. There is even a TSB out about it. Called the Jag dealer and they wanted (please sit down) $174.00 a piece for them. It must of cost $3 to make- sad business. Any place online to find them at better rates.

Thanks for your help. You folks are generally right on. If there is a mobile leather repair or shop that stands out in Dallas that would be super, but i just don't want to send the car off for week to get something like this taken care of.

If your trim is stated as SEL on the car's plate you should be able to trust it.

Unless everyone correctly adjusts their web sites and browsers to show colours properly - which hasn't happened and IMO won't happen - you can't go by eye on the net / your PC (or phone etc).

Thanks for your help. I did ask the dealer and here is his response.

Barley and Champagne are in fact the same color. Jaguar changed the name, but trim code stayed the same, SEL. As far as number code, Jaguar only uses the letter system SEL.
