Is there a part number and sticker on the back, providing they're original mats.

I don't see a number on the back, they are original that I am sure of.

I've sometimes bought stuff on ebay etc which looked the same colour as mine in the photos, however they have turned out to be different..

I assume that certain light conditions don't give an accurate reflection of the colour in photos.

Here's the label off the back of mine. They look black but in reality are a darkish charcoal.
I have yet to find mats to match the original colour so if you get lucks perhaps you'll share

The word "Soul" on that label is definitely a colour/scheme used by Audi. Someone else can probably elaborate.
2003 D2 FL S8. Irish Green Pearl/Beige. Solar sunroof, auto-dim mirrors, electric rear seat functions, ski hatch retrofit; extended leather. Aftermarket DVB-T, reversing camera and full XCarlink (Bluetooth etc.).
2016 Volvo V40 T5 Cross Country (4WD) with ALL the toys including adaptive cruise etc. etc. Osmium Grey with Blonde/Charcoal leather interior. Polestar performance "optimisation". (A much rarer model than a D2 S8 by the way!)
Finally: gone, but not forgotten.....
1998 D2 PF S8. AgateGrey/Platinum. Every option (I think) except electric rear seats, tiptronic steering wheel, ski hatch, towbar & dimming door mirrors.
e.g. Cruise control, NavPlus/TV, Bose, GSM, Xenons, Solar roof, Parking sensors, Alcantara/leather everywhere of course. (internal dimming mirror added later)
1998 (very early) Ford Focus 1.8 Zetec; ABS/TCS, Heated screen/mirrors, Aircon, Auto-dim mirror, Leather, Trip computer, Cruise control, OEM Ford SatNav with CD changer.

According to ETKA, there only appears to have been four (standard) colours available for the floor mats. These are:

Soul (black) - 8A6
Indigo blue - 8B7
Light platinum (grey) - 8C8
Torrone (beige) - 8D9

This would also match what it shows in the brochure. Check out pages 44 and 45 of this document (A8 - May 06.pdf) in the D3 Tech Dump thread.

One final check is to look at the build sticker in the boot. Go down to the section marked 'Paint No./Interior', and at the far right should be a two character code. Cross reference that with what is on pages 44 and 45.

Assuming of course that the mats haven't been changed at some point, then you should be able to identify the correct colour.

Thank you gents you are indeed a helpful bunch.

Agree with those comments about black ones looking like charcoal.

If I put something Matt black against them, there is a marked difference.

Car is on a private reg of V8 TNO.

I'll also check that sticker!

HI there...

I was onto Audi this morning and unfortunately they dont supply OEM mats for this model anymore....

Would be good to see how you get on with replacing yours....
