Now I notice it, there's a very common one missing.. one which I might consider to be rather important.. Alpine White ;)
I could probably get the code for that tomorrow, I've got a pot of VW touch up paint in the car..

Just found mine and it isn't on many lists I can find - if you're looking for a light metallic blue the code is LA5R and it's called Tossa Blue Met! Hope this helps!
