itll either be LA7W which is reflex silver or LB7Z which is Satin Silver

They are slightly different, so its important to check for the code

If you cant find it, your local VW dealer can provide it by giving them your reg number

That's arctic silver. L92U is the code. Odd shade of silver for a polo
