    Hi there, looking at putting an s3 boot on my a3, mine has a dent and laquer peel over the whole boot. plus i will get an s3 spoiler.
    ive found one which im considering buying, but the paint codes are a tad different, not sure if he got it wrong or if there 2 different shades.

    s3 code - LY7W
    my a3 code - LY7M

    Silver.

    just the last letter is different, any suggests to what the difference could be?
    thanks

    possibly just a slight difference in shade I would think.

    LY7W is listed as "Light Silver Metallic"
    LY7M is listed as "Aluminum Silver"
