    Dont joke - if you could get a beige option someone would buy it out of bad taste or just to be different! (& I thought the blue and yellow were bad enough)

    Keep seeing Gold Bimmers and Golfs - why?? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/vomit.gif[/img]

    I've just come back from the dealers where there was a un registered TT coupe in cosmic yellow. I didnt know they done TT's in this colour, it certainly looked different to all of the Blue / Silver ones around.

    Its nearly beige if you squint hard enough. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

    Katie, that is excellent, how the hell did you do it?
    And the strange thing is, it doesn't actually look that bad. Only an S3 could look reasonable in Beige.
    OK I need an Audiesque description of Beige, something like Desert Storm (Misty Buff is the obvious choice but I think this would give the game away). Hold on, I've just been on the Audi site and they do an A4 in a colour called Canvas Beige!!!!!!!! And they charge 430 for it.

    Forget Photoshop, PSP et al.

    Xara is king; a stupendously brilliant British vector drawing package that can also handle bitmaps. Corel corporation did try to hobble them by having an exclusive distribution deal and then not marketing it, but it is now back in Xaras' hands.

    I Imported a stock photo of a light-coloured car, then overlaid a transparent object (with windows and grille cut out) that can be tinted any colour. Then exported a jpeg of the combined image.

    www.xara.com

    Can be done with PS & PSP with layers and masks not nearly so easily 'though.

    I still didn't fathom how to put the pic in my posting; glad you could find it.

    As for a name, how about Nubian Pink, as used for SAS Long Range Reconnaisance Patrol vehicles?

    The best colour for an S3, should really be a particularly vile shade of Kermit Green, or, a special "Mr Blobby" type paint scheme. That way, you'd always have an excuse for not being able to sell it.

    Katie.

    Re: Where are all the beige S3\'s?

    Thanks Katie.
    Audi already do plenty of vile greens. It has to be beige or sh*t brown, like an old Austin Allegro. Anything else shows too much imagination & personality. Nothing says dull like a shade of brown.
    What colour is Nubian Pink? It sounds highly unlikely as a military colour scheme. Certainly couldn't be American, they wouldn't get the irony.
