Paint Code

Recommended Posts

ON my options sticker, my paint code is listed as "L998 AH"

But when I look up "Guards Red" it is listed as 84A. When I look for 998 - it is not listed anywhere.

Car is: 2002 996 TT (Guards Red).

Any reason why color does not match code# ?

THanks

Not necessarily your bad.

Typically, the paint code on the option sticker would be L84A for Guards Red, so it is unusual for it to show L998. (L=Lack - German for Paint)

The AH is for the Black interior.

OK, now I am really confused.

The real paint code sticker says, "Y83 9 Amulett Rot (Audi)"

Does this mean my Porsche has Audi paint on it ?

Wow...here is what I found. Thank goodness an old original touch up paint bottle was still in the car.

The code on the Bottle is: LST 0U2 Y3C"

Which is listed here: http://www.zakparts.com/shop/article_LST%25200U2%2520Y3C/VAG---Amulet-Red---LY3C.html?sessid=5gMZlgodp7i42ExF4w91rNaihNSm4JNLwPIEPWHkr2lh7DSOEdN7buq7dPlHOK0e&shop_param=cid%3D11%26aid%3DLST%25200U2%2520Y3C%26

as "Volkswagen/Audi Amulet Red" and a paint code of "LY3C". Not the "Y83 9" listed on the paint code label.

I am so sad, I now have "Amulet Red" and not "Guards Red" which sounded so much more manly.

Don't be sad - think positive! Someone paid extra for a special order colour, and you got it for the same price as plain old Guards Red! And think about the extra bragging rights it gives you. At meets you'll be able to turn your nose up at Guards Red cars, and smugly say "mine is Special Order Amulet Red". Priceless. :)

Look for your option sticker under the front hood or in the Owner's Maintenance Manual. Those are the easy locations.

There is also a plate on the left fender inside the front trunk behind the carpet.
