    Best colour match for S3 badge

    Hi guys im looking for the best colour match for the red part on the rear S3 badge or the red on the calipers. Has anyone any ideas ? I just need it to pick out a few highlighted bits on the car wheels once the weather warms up. Not bothered if its an original audi touch up colour or another one.

    Just been on the audi website and as you can see from the link the red on the badge is a darker red than the car

    Just get smooth red hammerite! matches the red on my S line badges pretty well!

    If your painting your calipers the colour code will be irrelevant as that sort of paint is not available in a high temp version.........which you will need!
