    What color do you think my car was?

    The paint sticker is not on the car and it does not show up on VIN search either
    I am thinking either resedagrün or olivgrün but can't be sure

    Cool

    What is the VIN number ? It looks like a blue color. It could be Pacific Blue. Is it a Metallic Paint ?

    Judging from last photo, the paint on the door rear-mirror wing perhaps originally LapisBlau, (which was non-metallic) now faded? Possibly re-sprayed later with a similar color looking at the overspray around the door trim clips?

    Yeah, looks like green on the trim and a blue color added.
