    It's gotta be said though; if there was a colour to re-spray a recently sprayed car to, Dolphin Grey's a good candidate. I kept an eye out for one in Dolphin when I was shopping for my Black A3... I've always had a big soft spot for Dolhpin Grey, it's just a shame (well, for buyers anyway) that it's rare as rocking-horse muck and even more so on A3s (S3 still a little while off for me - quote me sad...). Our own rickparmar made an awesome find imho.

    Regards,

    Rob.

    I have some stupid colour that isn't Dolphin Grey or Black, it's Volcano black or something, which is a very dark grey metallic.

    Doh. Thought I'd read it was Dolphin and I didn't spot it from his avatar/pic... I always struggle to tell Dolphin/Mineral apart unless in the flesh! The last time I was at Preston Audi (which come to think of it, is now a hell of a long time ago [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]) they had a Dolphin S3 in the back and I was quite upset to find another being prepared for sale. I hate insurance companies.

    Regards,

    Rob.

    EDIT: Having looked again at his pic, it's clear I am a dope; it's a good deal too light to be Dolphin, having said that a bigger pic does make it easier for me!

    Also can you check the paint codes for me?

    I take it that it's one of these? F5F5 , LX7Z

    Markb,

    The actual paint code is LX7Z...this will be what is on the vehicle data sticker of a dolphin grey S3/A3. The dealer order code is F5F5...which is of no use when trying to get hold of the colour!

    I wonder what an S3 in that TT "primer" grey would look like.

    Don't know the proper name for that colour.

    The car you are refering to is PVW's project car from a few years back and as you say the colour only works on certain cars [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    I think it was the first MK2 to get a TT dash if I remember.
