D doesn't mean Dark. All the paint codes are followed by "-D" which, as someone else stated, probably refers to Dulux.

Either yours has faded or been repainted at some stage. If it's the metallic blue in your avatar it never weathered well and was very prone to fading.

See if it's a better colour match in your door recesses or in the boot. That would be closer to what your exterior colour should be unless it's been totally repainted at some stage.

Means nothing. If you go to the paint shop they will only want the first 5 characters. Every colour that I've ever seen ends in -D.
