Help Identifying Paint Code

Im trying to find my paint code and from all my searching online they all begin with an L and are 4 letters long.

The vehicle data I have has G-38 listed as the paint code... cant find this online.

The reason im looking is there are a couple bad chips beginning to corrode on the bonnet plus bad chip on the wing and the front bumper .is slightly distorted. Was hoping to have a butchers and see if I could find replacement parts with the same colour code.

Car is 2008 A4 Avant 1.8TFSI 160ps

Yes mines under the spare wheel too. You shouldn't need it cos any decent body man will match from existing paint as the colour changes over time.

Its in the service manual schedule, it where i got the code for my last audi from, clearly states it as paint code just doesn't match anything online.

See attached, it has a key 1-5 and states number 4 as being colour code/interior trim which would mean G-38 is the colour code

I agree with what FlyingSparks5 posted, every VW group car I have owned from 2000> has had that type of "build data" sheet in the service book and the boot area of the car.
I'm guessing that your car has needed a replacement service book some time in its life - and lost its "build data" sheet from the boot area, very strange, maybe ask previous owner about that plus check its MOT records maybe to see if the mileage looks okay over the past few years.

Or save a my more hassle or confusion and ring your dealer, the parts department will get you the code via the VIN

@rum4mo The build label thats in the service book is what I have already posted, definitely no label in the spare wheel well. I will check under the rear seats. Also the mileage checks out alogn with the rest of the car history, I did all those checks before I bought it.

I found that colour chart the other day and I would guess quartz grey. Have a look see what all you think.

If it has to be a guess I'd agree with Quartz Grey.
That said looking at it with the other monitor the light silver does not seem a million miles away.

There are others so all things considered you really need the code. If you cannot find it I would call a dealer and ask them to identify it from the chassis number.

Strange, there must be a reason for it being different though, maybe something to find out about when you have time?
