Can you get paint colour from VIN?

Long story short, my rental car decided to roll into one of our neighbours cars (typically, the ones we never speak to!). It was their daughters car who lives miles away.

Anyway, she's been quoted 650 to repair the bumper. Its an '06 Vauxhall Corsa.

So I've asked if I can source my own bumper and she agreed. The thing is, I want to get it painted too as this company is going to charge nearly 350 just for paint.

The only detail I have from the car is the reg and the VIN. Does anyone know if its possible to establish the cars paint chip code from these details?
