    Audi OEM parts - painted or not?

    Got a quote from Stoke Audi for some replacement body parts for my mate's 57 A4 but forgot to ask if they come already painted

    Does anyone know if Audi do body parts already painted up?


    Thanks

    Ok thanks for replies.

    I had a Civic before the A3 and Honda now sell parts already painted so would have thought the Germans would be on this by now too

    Yeah honda can do it because the civic is built in the uk and the cost of factory coloured parts is cheaper. With imported cars, you can imagine the cost of getting it sorted and then risking damage shipping it around europe.

    To be honest Honda paint is the worst finish and least durable car paint anyway!

    There are a number of parts that are now supplied painted ready to fit.

    Many bumpers for example I buy new, ex dealer stock are factory painted.
