      **EDIT: 04-09-2012: NEWEST LOOK IS ON PAGE 10



      *EDIT 2-7-10Some one did an all Mary of holy bumps and found this from years ago bringing it back in the spot light. Here's an semi update: However the Audi is still textured it does not look anything as originally done as seen directly below. She was re-masked and shot with a Audi Titanium Silver Paint Job with clear coat over the top, new machined staggered rims, A newer apperance in pictures is directly below the first attempt in this first post, however as it sits it currently has a blacked out roof with S4 Chrome mirrors (not pictured)

      In these times of paying the mortgage, the economy and no respect receiving scratches, dings and scraps from others with-in 6 months of your new paint I decided to take another approach.

      I'm sick of buffing, polishing, dings, and the front end rock chips, sun fade in Arizona, 15 second dirt showers, 1/2 pound bugs while doing highway speeds, and of the sort .

      I blatantly refuse to pay $2,500 to $3,000 for a paint job, even finding some one to touch it for $1,500 would be if tuff if OEM, but it's not OEM, I had a fully 100% unprepared body kit.

      Sadly, you can find these all day long for $3K on Craigslist, as a matter of fact there's a Reiger Audi A4 for $3K with a custom paint job on there now .

      For what I did, I allowed it to cure and took my largest wrench, and well, beat the car: And the result, nothing, nothing at all. I even tried to scratch it, pull off chunks on corners with my finger nail, and stabbed it with a flat head in the trunk jam, nothing.

      She was taken apart and fully sprayed, took about 3 weeks, I didn't want the infamous ghetto non-door jam/interior door/trunk jam non-spray. Washing her is so tremendously easy! I was a little concerned regarding attempting to dry her after a wash, as I figured the finish would tear up a shammy, nope, the finish isn't ruff at all. It's actually pretty smooth, one swipe and she's dry.

      I'll do a write up shortly, so here you go:


      I did pics in the shade, and in the sun.

      AS NOT TO GO THROUGH PAGES OF THUMBDOWNS HERE'S THE NEWER APPEARANCE DONE A ~YEAR BACK. A AUDI TITUTIUM SILVER PAINT JOB OVER THE TOP, CLEAR COAT, NEW SHOES.

      THE NEWEST VERSION THE ROOF HAS BEEN BLACKED OUT AND CHROME S4 MIRROS HAVE BEEN ADDED, NO PICS HAVE BEEN POSTED AS OF YET

      wait so did you really bedline the hex part of your wheel that unscrews so you can get to the wheel bolts?

      you guys. you all are dwelling on the obvious.

      no one has even mentioned his after-market ferrari red calipers. as far as im concerned its the hottest part on the car and speaks volumes about the type of performance stress this car is put under on a daily basis.

      i like the way it blends into the texture of the asphalt, its like a noisy movable multicolor tarmac hill.

      Bravo!

      First you piss of APS (which btw im curious to know how it ended) but you also did some cool **** with bedliner. I think it looks great, from far away it looks like flat gray. Im not feeling the wheels but im not a fan of those wheels in there regular finish.

      So what its not low and shiny, its tough as hell.

      Well... you can run over homeless people without worry. It almost looks inside out. Or like it's made of cement.

      WTF?!?

      Why would you uglify a beautiful car like that? Up to you, but I would never thing of ****ing my car in the ass without its permission, the punch it in the back of the head like that.

      Man, that has to add to the aerodynamic drag. Imagine the wind noise!

      why didn't you just take off the audi emblems under the repeaters instead of painting them?

      This type of closed-minded attitude is why i never visit these forums...

      Personally i think it's awesome and i can't wait to see it around town. The color combo is cool yet kind of boring, but the overall effect is sweet, i think. Love the texture and the toughness of the bedliner
