    Reflex silver is a nice silver but i don't know how much of a difference it is to the silver thats on my car as that means i would have to get the insides of the doors, boot and bonnet done

    No its not Avus Silver, unless its the one with a hint of blue in it??

    If its the Silver I am thinking of, it will be Lake Silver Metallic - LY7W

    If you have a look in the boot, there will be a sticker in there, or on the front inside cover on your handbook there will be a white sticker that will have the code on it.

    Im pretty sure it will be the one I have stated, but double check, or otherwise ring Audi with your VIN number, they should be able to advise...

    Mine is listed as 'aluminium silver', the fastest colour by far....

    Spray it Suzuka Grey!

    There should be a sticker when you look in the spare wheel bit with the paint code.

    Aaron, Just a suggestion but is be inclined to blot out the Vin number of your car when posting a pic of the vehicle details sticker on the web.

    Yep, that's the same as mine. For pics see the GTI INternational 2010 thread ("S3PRN").

    JoJo - it definitely ain't "OAP Silver". I think you're confused with "Geriatric Black" mate!
