    Is this a custom paint job???

    On a browsing session and stumbled on this colour.

    I remember seeing a red'ish/maroony A3 on here a while ago, but this one is more towards purple.

    another one...




    Think its a custom paint now i've looked a bit harder, the bumper is darker which suggests its seen a bodyshop as they havent quite matched the colour, but not majorly awful.

    Although i have seen a few factory painted cars not matching too!

    Need this colour in my life.
