My daughter wrecked my bride's 2015 Passat on Tuesday. Tore the front off backing out of the garage. Looks terrible, but in reality only 2 parts were destroyed, upper grilled and bumper cover. Junkyard grille is on the way. A local yard has a 2014 Passat bumper cover listed. They were nice enough to send me a picture but it doesn't look the same. It may be a 2016+ one. The color is different too. That one is more electric blue and ours is dark midnight blue.

I was looking for the paint code on her car but can't find it. No trunklid, or left trunk wall. Any other suggestions to find it?

FWIW, 2016+ Passat bumper will look totally different and will not work with a 2015 unless you change the headlights, grille, bumper and fenders.

Here's a link where you can see a side by side of the body differences between the 2015 and 2016+ Passats:
