      There are 5 different red tint variations for Shadow Blue, I'm sorry, but those do not match very well.

      That s correct and is very hard to match 100% perfect unless i have the vehicle in the shop but again i m doing this on the side so i m use the standard color formula. And depend on the angle like the owner mention but overall they r alot better than those rattle can spray or OEM amber color.

      You are right, at the angle the picture is you can tell they are off a bit, but from far away and other angles they look colormatched

      The variation is very minor and i alway choose standard or 1 shade darker if neccessary. That s why on those pic doesnt do justice.

      No worries, I hope you don't think I was bashing.

      A lot of people purchase your side markers and are very happy. Shadow Blue is very tricky from the recent painting that was required for my MKVI. I just wanted to let the OP know about the color variation.

      i knew there was no bashing involved, john does do good work. shadow blue is tricky to match and i was aware of the color variation

      I know this is a stupid question but where did you find the led license plate bulbs and who do you get to do the vag com tweaks ? I assume the dealer is not the place to go for this.
