    Exclamation Wing Advice ??

    I want to change my front wings as they are now looking a bit beat up, the trouble is the only ones i see for sale are for pre-facelift.

    So a few questions to help my search are.........


    Will the wings off a 3 door car fit a 5 door car?


    I've phone up a few breakers and they say they have got some in dark blue but don't have a paint code.

    Is there anywhere that will show the names of the paint codes by year of car...etc ?

    Last one....lol

    my car is ming blue pearlescent, Does ming blue only come in pearlescent or is that something else i need to worry about?


    Sorry for all the questions....lol

    Wing Advice ??

    Hi dude, pre and post front wings are the same, ming blue is LZU paint code i think and also theres something in the stickies about paint codes.

    Get the face lift lights and put the xenon kit in, they look the shiz.

    Yes the 3 and 5 door wings are the same.

    Paint codes are printed on the chassis/vehicle designation sticker that is under the boot carpet.

    There are three variants of Ming blue, so you'll need to get the right paint code. LZ5L is the most common.
    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.

    Thanks for the reply mate

    The paint code for ming blue is LZ5L but the breakers just don't know the code when i phone them.


    I want the wings to be from a facelift so they have the correct indicators....etc


    What I'm trying to find out is, If i for example i see some wings on a website or a breakers and they look like ming blue wings but they don't know the paint code.

    Will i just be taking a chance that they are ming blue or will i be taking a chance that they are ming blue and pearlescent ?


    I could have probable explained that a lot better....LOL

    Thanks mate



    Do you know what the other variants are and if they were an option with my year of a3 ?



    Edit: I know where the sticker is and where it is in the handbook but most of the breakers I've called just say they take some parts off and crush the car so they don't have any paint codes (probably just too lazy to go and have a look).

    No cockface20vt don't tell him that, because you're wrong and you'll cost him money.

    Pre and post facelift wings are NOT the same. Facelift wings have different metal formings around the light and different side repeaters.



    Compared to a facelift wing -
