Interior Trim Code Guide

To help ensure that I find the right automotive leather dye for your car or truck, an interior color code will be very helpful. Here's a short guide to where to find the interior color codes for a variety of makes and models. This guide will eventually cover the interior trim code locations for over 35 different makes.

Acura

Audi

 Audi and VW hide this sticker somewhere inside the spare tire wheel well in the trunk area. Check on the underside of the spare tire cover, or inside the tire well. Alternatively, VW has been known to apply the sticker to the underside of the rear bench seat.

BMW

 BMW encodes the interior trim to the VIN, so there is no interior trim code to be found. A description of the leather color is always helpful. The VIN can be found at the left front dash area (seen through the windshield) or on the driver's side door pillar.

Buick & Cadillac & Chevrolet (Including Pontiac)

 Buick and Cadillac, along with all other GM makes, have the interior color codes on the Service Parts Identification sticker. Most of the time you'll find it in the glove box, but it could also be on the driver side door pillar, OR in the spare tire well. The interior color code is in the bottom right of the sticker, but is also one of the RPO codes near the end of the list ending in the letter "I". Both of these can be helpful.

Mercedes Benz

 Before you go hunting for option codes, Mercedes does a pretty good job of associating interior option codes with the VIN, so USUALLY the vin is all that's needed. If you have to find the leather option code, it's either a stamped tag under the hood riveted to the radiator support, or a sticker affixed to the driver's side door jamb, OR inside the spare tire wheel well. Leather options start with a 2.

Porsche

 Porsche is VERY inconsistent with this option code sticker -- most of the time it will be affixed to the first page of the owner's manual. Then check the spare tire well. Then check under the hood. If all else fails, call your local Porsche dealer and ask them to decode your VIN. I often can decipher the interior from the VIN as well.

Rolls Royce / Ferrari

Interior color details will either be in the owner's manual or the window sticker that came with the car. Your local Rolls / Ferrari dealer will be able to decode your VIN for you as well. 3rd party VIN decoders are very inconsistent with RR/Ferrari details, so it's best to call your dealer's parts or service department and ask.

Volvo

 Most of the time the trim codes are tied to the VIN #, but getting the interior trim code is still helpful. This vin plate can be found under the hood, usually riveted to the inside left fender above the left wheel well. The interior trim code is a 4 digit code, usually above the 5-digit "XXX-XX" paint code.
