Default touch up paint

Does anyone know of a site that has good touch up paint for audi's. I have a 1999 a4 2.8 quattro and its volcano black. How do i get the paint code? Any way i should do this to make it unnoticeable? Should i get clearcoat too?

you use a real fine grit sand paper with water.( not for sure but might be like a 2000 grit paper)
But if you dont know how to do it ,I woul find someone who does and have them do it.
It is very easy to burn through the paint and that will look much worse then the scratch did.

If you don't know how to do it, I strongly suggest you don't do it. Find someone who knows to wet sand it for you. I've learned my lesson from my previous car - Acura TL-S. I messed it up and ended up in a shop for repaint. It costs me more than just touch-up.

Volcano black is paint code - LZ9U

I think there is a sticker by the spare tire well, and in your manual iirc.
