    Have you not checked the paint code it's on boot floor on a paper sticker or log book? Just phone audi or pop in to order if you can't find it! They'll go by your reg/chassis no

    The name of the colour doesn't matter if you just need to order paint! the code is all anyone would ever need. There is only one paint code for a colour.

    Not that you need it, as said above, but here is an old paint list with names of colours with yours at the bottom - Paint Codes. Got a neat pocket ref for Audi codes today. - AudiWorld Forums

    Thats not strictly true, on popular cars with popular colours, there could be multiple different colour codes for each different batch of paint used at the factory.

    The colour was called "light silver". It was used on the 8P1 and 8P2 models. 8P3 models went to "ice silver".

    Agreed. Also known as Silbersee in German (but I can't do the accented characters on TapaTalk).
