The color has since been chosen... Burple!

santorin and get rear ended and sell me your hood and bumper....
..srsly tho I saw a like burnt orange that looked sweet. When I say sweet I mean the color not the two tone that he did. get it all 1 color:
pic I found on another thread (from 2006 not linking thread so some tard can resurrect it)
My only recommendation would be to get all the body work you might want done while it's there. You don't want to have it painted and then get to thinking 3 months later, "damn, wish I would have done that..."
daytona grey lz7s if i remember right
painted my sedan, for me it was daytona grey/santorin blue, i also had the full vw/audi color catalouge check out my first few posts (loads of photos)
here is a good photo
and another compared to black in sunlight and shade
Lately I have been testing "tip-in events". Just the tip-in. Just to see how it feels. Response time is typically on the order of 2-3 seconds. Sometimes the injection timing is a little off...
I think before you decide a color, just reemember not to go too crazy or outrageous. If you ever plan to sell the car down the road, you'd probably have a hard time selling it if it was a neon green!Thanks for all the feedback - Love the colors! Too many to choose from!! DECISIONS, DECISIONS...
Well, body work began today and twelve hours later my B5 is wider than an RS4 With my fenders flared now it looks like she can come down at least another inch in front and 1.5 or more in the rear. I'm very happy with the way its all looking at this point (my body body man is a magician). Eggshell white seems to be the color of choice at this point but..... we will see Kinda diggin hot rod flats blue too -
If you guys haven't already seen this its quite inspiring -
Well, I was only following his instruction but he had me rough up the face of each piece (upper and lower) approx. 2 inches from the seam with a angled grinder (36 grit disc) - then i roughed up the mating seam of each piece to give the glue something to adhere to - next we snapped the two pieces together and filled the seam with evercoat maximum two part bumper repair and 3M 5601 adhesion promoter - after that dries you can blend the seam with bondo to merge the two pieces smooth. After a few coats and lots of sanding they are nearly ready to be primed - cant wait! Hope this helps-
*Correction: Evercoat metal glaze - NOT Bondo
