Hello everyone,

I'm new to this forum and I would like to share pics of my freshly restored 1979 P200E.

I'm very happy to be here!

Love the color. Any idea what it's from?

Hope mine will look that good at some point...

Looks a slightly lighter version of the anthracite that the mk1 T5 came in. Probably my favourite of the stock colours

Nice P, which engine is it? 125, 150 or 200?

Thank you!
The color is actually from Audi and it's called "Nimbus Grey". Code LZ7X
It's slightly pearlescent and (I think) it provides a nice contrast with the indicators.

Nice looking machine.

Welcome from a PX and smallframe owner in self-imposed exile in the Antipodes...

That's hilarious! I almost asked if it was Nimbus Grey, but thought the probabilities were slim- it's one of two colors I'm considering. I've actually got an order in for a test can of Audi Nardo Grey to see how it compares to the Ascot grey of an old Mercedes I had.

The Nimbus is a beautiful color, but I had almost talked myself out of it due to the difficulty in applying pearls in tight areas.

Yours has me rethinking that. Lovely scooter!
