Is all OEM Pearl White the same?

If he's talking about swapping body parts without
repainting, IMHO, all VAG products have VERY regular
paint codes, as opposed to other brands.  I've used
body parts from other pearl cars on my 89 200 and
can't really notice any difference.  Seen it on other
Audis as well.  Now Dorf on the other hand...  Same
year and same paint code from the same factory, and it
looked like a totally different color.  Their paint
color tolerances suck.
