While searching for information for the paint of my car, I found a list
of VW paint codes which should be useful to uk-mkivs surfers. I will try
to make a list from this, with pictures of cars showing the paint
code, paint name and a photograph. If you want a picture of your car
posted in the list to represent that colour then please submit it on this thread, making sure
it is of high resolution so the viewer gets a good idea for the colour
of their car.

Hello there - brand new to the forum so forgive me if I sound a bit stupid. I have recently bought a 2003 built 1.9 GT TDI Golf and the colour was listed by the dealer as 'Oceanic Green - Pearl' Am I right in thinking that 'LC6X - Baltic Green Pearl' is the colour code that I need to do touch-ups for stone chips ? I think the full code is LC6X/8Z.

Yeah, that'll be right - just give VW the code from your sticker (LC6X) and they'll give you the paint.

I think the above list was taken from an American site selling paint, so isn't exactly right for the UK market names
