      Oh boy, I'm almost second guessing the re-spray of my car now... -too much work though..

      It's period correct ('86)

      That's not Lhasa, is it? It looks too bright.

      Oceanic Blue, I'll get a shot up of a Lhasa...those are nice too.

      This is why I need 10 urQ's.
      Soo many great colors...just one car for now.

      I do indeed like Lhasa as well, but not as much.

      I'm not too much of a fan of the oceanic, makes the car look like anodized metal. I'd personally opt for the Lhasa between the two.

      But hey, not my car, not my choice! And I'm sure you'll do good on restoring the old urq

      I like Helios, Titan red, and I actually really really like the green color and I *DESPISE* green for almost all cars except old XKE's and other British sportscars. Oceanic blue is very nice also, but, I would take the car back to the original color

      I think Oceanic is a gorgeous color, my second favorite Type 85 color after black.

      Yeah, I'm still wondering what next.

      But still planning on the original paint.

      My First VAG car was in Alpine White, so I'm always partial to that color, and I think it looks really great on the earlier urQ's...


      BAH!

      Did Audi offer more then one color of white back in the day? I ask this as that white Ur-Q in the picture almost has a creamier look to it than say the CE 4kq's. Maybe it is just do to the fact that the Ur-Q in the picture was probabally completly restored This is why you need 10 Ur-Q's Sepp

      That was my guess.

      What's the paint code on the top of your boot say?

      It appears that the ur, in the back of the line is Pearl, while the ur up torwards the front is Alpine.
      Hard to say though...

      Just because I'm bored, I'm going to write down all the official colors for the quattro (both US and ROW) and Sport quattro. I'm going to put these in a separate thread, so it'll be easy to find later. They will also be linked in the FAQ!

      Thanks. There is one for sale on 2Bennetts web page in that color, I can't believe how much I like is as I am not a green fan in the least.
