Chip cards you now find selling for about $5-ish each at swap meets as more
and more people get into doing restoration themselves - nothing like selling
something that you got for free, huh?
There are some sources on the web, off the top of my head, check
www.glasurit.com and go to the Color tab - I thought that there was a way to
list all the colours in the database, although I couldn't find it in a quick
attempt.  The Audi colours are under VW-Audi, LY7U shows a listing for
"STEINGRAU MET" - or Stone Grey Metallic - and clicking on the "Technology"
on the right will give you a mix proportion card.
