    hi, just got my log book back from dvla, and it says the colour of my car is 'grey'
    im almost sure, (but i might be wrong!) it used to say something else, ie. a specific grey!
    can someone please clarify if i am going mental or is there a specific type of grey my car is?
    cheers

    well after extensive research on this matter, i have concluded that my car is 'LAVA GREY' based solely on colour comparisons and the fact that i like the name 'LAVA GREY'!!! :yahoo: 'METEOR GREY' came a close second!!!

    so from now on my car will be refered to as lava grey a3!!!

    glad thats been cleared up!!!

    DVLA are Arses.

    i use to have a Golf 1.4 Mk4 in Black, Hatchback.

    It came up as a Golf, 1490cc (1.5), Saloon and Grey ?

    It was an import so either the importer fudged up the details or the DVLA did, i know who my money would be on!

    And your car is either Lava or Metoer Grey ! The paint code is in the in the spare wheel area so get the code and google it and that will tell yhou fo sure !

    The car wouldnt be Meteor Grey like Decked S3 as Dave already stated is a facelift colour. Either be Dolphin Grey which its not as the colour not flat and too dark. Which leaves it to the winner Lava grey lol :D which is a darker grey and metallic paint
    So you dont have to worry no more. And the Police tried telling me when i got pulled over my car was black when it was lava grey
