Default audi 100 hubcap paint code

Hi. I'm restoring a 1986 Type 44 Audi 100 turbo diesel in Ireland. I want to tidy up the wheel trims as they are a bit scuffed etc.. Does anyone have a paint code or know where i could get the paint code for the trims?

When I'm finished i'll post a few pics of the car.

Thanks for all your help so far with other queries.

This is a great site.

Sorry, I don't have a paint code, but assuming you may want to keep close to originality, my type 44's (1987) hub caps weren't so much silver, but more of a sandy shade....

I may be wrong, but I thought silver became more prevalent with a change to the hub caps design, post 1987.

Those pre-88 hub caps are ugly IMO. The post-88 ones only slightly less so.

Consider putting your efforts into finding some period OEM alloys.
I've got Ronals - 6J*14 size means I can share tyres with the steels as necessary.

Thanks. Yea. i tend to agree. i have a set of Audi alloys on it but i think they are from a later model maybe the 88 onwards.. I'll take a photo of them and send on... I think they are too modern for this car which I would like to keep original.. Fair point though. I like the ronals.

Thanks. That's true. Mine are not silver either ... Other replies here have said that its Zermatt Silver... I'm wondering is that just regular or is there a matting agent put into the paint.. They appear to be not gloss finish.. but then again maybe they were in 1986!

The parts listing says Zermatt. The code (V7T) is different as it's for plastics.
