    My 1999 S3 is black, non metallic. Can someone let me know if there was more than one straight black paint code on the 8L? I have some corrosion at the bottom of my o/s wing and have found someone selling a wing but he doesn't have the paint code. If there was just one straight black then it is probably a safe bet the wing will be the right colour.

    Your paint code is on a sticker in your boot underneath the boot carpet if that helps
