Engine, Transmission, Paint and Trim Codes
VW and Audi cars both use stickers in the trunk to identify what options the car has. This sticker is usually present and intact but can often get ripped off or worn out making it hard to read. It can be found on the side of the spare tire wheel well. Since this sticker is applied after the car is built, its location can vary from car to car. We recommend taking a cell phone picture of the tag to make it easier to read instead of wedging yourself in the trunk.
The identification sticker on this A5 is in great shape and shows a lot of information about the car. The engine code and transmission codes can be clearly seen. In this case the engine code is CPMA and the transmission code is NTA. The paint code of LZ9Y is also on this label with the Interior code of N1F. Below these codes, the label also shows all the 3-character option packages that the car came with.
