      Washed my car. Pretty disgusted with all the paint imperfections and scratches/scuffs from the previous owner. Also my B-pillar is pretty much done for. Half of it has the original vinyl peeled off and it's not getting any better.

      Getting tired of the silver the RS4's are in. Made some PS mockups of future plans for powder coating. Before I get them coated I am going to sand down all of the curbage from the previous owner. Two of them have minor curbage, one is curbed for a good chunk of the lip around, and one I actually had unbent and refinished when I first got the car, the wheel was taco'd essentially. Props to NuWheel in Tucson AZ!

      Im leaning towards the burnt orange or gold. But the blue would be neat. I want to stand out at Wuste!

      Also aquired a FMIC from a Cobalt today for free, its too wide to run in the A3 but a friend wants it for his B5 Passat and he is gonna trade me for one that will fit in the A3. Just gotta get some silicone piping and then its done!

      Burnt Orange/Gold


      Metallic Blue


      Green just to appease a friend.

      Gold looks so bad ass with white car. I'd go dark gold with a silver lip.

Then gonna get the wheels coated! Its a 2-3 day turn around time. So Ill be sure to take photos afterwards! Im pretty excited, I dont think too many people will have gold RS4's It will stand out

      Paint the mirror caps and the chrome around the front grill to match and you'll be... golden. Otherwise they will just look out of place. Maybe even do the front and back set of rings.

      Lol rebel chop that into the pic so we can take a look... sounds interesting.

      On a similar note, how do you all feel about chrome mirror caps on our cars? or ? Thinking of grabbing a set..

      S3 mirror caps are always

      Chrome or Matte is the only debate. I think silver cars require chrome for contrast. White can go either way. Most others look better with matte unless you've got chrome rims to match up with the mirror caps.

      Not sure how they would work with colored rims on a white car. You would have a white car, black roof, colored rims, and chrome caps... just too much going on in different directions. I think matte would be better though, being less distracting from the rims.

      I'd pass with the color scheme you are thinking about going with. I would have the stock ones painted piano black to go with the open sky if I were you

      I agree. Black with a white car is the only way to go for me. But I will probably keep mine white for now at least.

      Yeah man, either black, or I'd get the matte aluminum ones and figure out a way to make them gunmetal instead and rock some gunmetal wheels to match.
