The paint code is L97B. I think it was first a Porsche colour called Anacona Blue Metallic?

Ended up buying original Mars Red....so series one Mars Red....seems way more orange in the tin

I remember hearing there were two shades being called Mars Red. One was more orange in colour, which is what I think my old Mk1 was. Could be wrong, it was years ago.

Have to vote silver for best colour  :)

This is nice, from the 79 color chart. Inari Silver metallic was offered as a GTI color in Germany

I know of 2 that colour that came in NZ new, both owned by forum members. Noel's 1.8T and Paul C's race car, though both have been re painted.

Could be, but I think that might be the other Dave's one.  He said it was going to the panel shop.
