Curious as to how much of the mk4 crew is rolling around with a completely different, one-off, non-oem VW paint...
I just got my car painted and since my car no longer has the paint code sticker in the trunk, the shop used a digital paint calibration device and it came out a shade darker, a bunch more flake than your standard galactic blue...and it looks totally sweet
... only problem is that I only got the front end painted and had it blended into the fenders...
crappy pics in the dark:

If you know its Galactic Blue, why didnt you just tell the shop? Not being a d***, but if it were my car, I would be a little upset rolling around with mismatched flake. Even if no one else noticed.

I was... but when I saw the whole front of the messed up color - I liked it... I'm seriously considering getting the whole car done that messed up color because it looks... mmmmmmmmmmmmmm....
so yea, I was a little miffed that the paint shop couldn't get the right color even though I told them the name, just didn't have the paint code.
just wanted a consolidated thread just for custom colors... not a stance thread, not a we are 139, but all over... I guess it's too much to ask for
- didn't see the we are 139 thread... got a link?
