What are the codes for the two-tone grey and two-tone gold S3s?


Just tripped over this today so I thought I'd update the thread.

Two tone grey/silver code is QK for 1984, and JR for 1985 (both the same.....Tornado Silver K8 & Sunbeam Silver K3).

The two-tone brown/gold code is QY (Antique Gold P7 and Havana Brown T5).

Thanks -Gomez-. =D> I've always wanted to know for sure what the two tone gold colour codes were.

You've now answered the question I asked in 2008. My S3 was two tone silver. Cheers Steve. :D
