hi all, happy new year!

i had a bit of an accident in the snow in my silver v6 4motion and damaged the front end. i have found the parts i need on ebay from a silver mk4 gti.

i was wondering, is the silver colour the same? i.e will it be an exact coulour match as i can only recall ever seeing the same shade of silver mk4 golfs?

many thanks for your help in advance.

kind regards
dave

I can't honestly remember the colour codes but there is definately two shades of silver

1 - Satin Silver

2 - Reflex Silver

and you'd be able to tell the difference between them!

If you go in your boot, lift the base liner and to the left of your spare wheel you will find a white sticker with all the factory codes - LA7W will show for Reflex in the body colour labelled section

They will never be an exact match due to shades used, paint on plastic and aging, but its a good start :)
