I can only confirm what I see in ETKA as it is official dealer data base.

You can always make a trip to your local VW dealer or Halfords or any other local paint shop and ask them about LB3Y or B3Y :wink:

mines a 2003, and has four character colour code LD7W.. only seem to see the four digit codes on Bobs post.. am i supposed to apply some kind of formula to the 3 character codes, such as ignore the first or last character?

or
would 'Silverstone Metallic Clearcoat............LD7W......2002 - 2005' be the correct one for me? as opposed to D7W etc?

Just add L on front of 3 character code so LD7W = D7W = urban gray metallic if I remember correctly.

I googled it and got mixed result as well. Mine is taken from VW catalogue.

Best confirm with vw or just go to halfrauds and see what they have on the list.

In the spare wheel well there should be a sticker with color code on.
Also a duplicate is in the owners manual front pages.

I have a stonehenge grey (green) car B5.5 Highline.

How do I know whether the paint code is clear pat or not. There are two stonehenge greys in the paint code list. What's the difference?
