i have a red jetta also. my paint code was missing also. i took my a part of my car that was my cars original color and took it to the paint shop and got them to scan it. if i can find my paint can i will post it for you so you can have the code. but my best advice is to take your gas cap door or somthing that is the orginal color and get it scanned.

sorry guys i still havent finished glossing all the skirts and lips. im really disappointed though. i fucked it up. i mean it looks good but you can tell it aint no factory paint job if you really examine it. i glossed the trunk and the wing. i like it but i think im gonna get the whole car repainted professionally. hey i tried but i just dont have some of the right stuff(like a booth or a baking room). i should be getting some more gloss tomorrow ill be posting pics soon. the shave job looks mad hot though i love that part the most. peace
