If all else fails you may be able to obtain your paint code from your  (  IF YOU HAVE ONE ) local ' FRIENDLY VW dealers parts department , I can normally get most information from mine they can get it of the " VW dialog " computer system chassis No or some times only Reg No required . Customers sometimes seem to mislay their service books or they don't have the relevent stickers in the book or car as some dealers can't be arsed to put them in when doing the PDI s :angry:
