    Matt blackwith anthracite wheels, much like the Lambo, would look cool on the RS4.

    Sweet jesus that Lambo looks absolutely insane in matt black. I've seen a lambo in matt black before but the matt vinyl actually looks better than paint. I can't explain why, maybe a softer sheen?
    If i had 800 floating about and owned an M3, RS4 etc.... I'd definitely film it matt gun metal or black.

    Dont suppose you will know yet but be interested to hear how easy dirt is to wash off the vinyl. As I find when I've waxed my car it makes washing a lot easier.

    Good man, that will look awesome - 800 sounds a lot cheaper than other prices Ive heard - around 1500 was what I thought it cost - still I s'pose the more people do it the easier.

    Does this include shuts and door ends etc?

    Are you going to get the grille chrome wrapped white, like the white packet? What about the chrome on the windows - black??

    Good luck, looking forward to the pics

    (Its just a shame the RS4 feels so slow.........)

    Birmingham Motor Show? I thought they held it in London nowadays.
    Whens it on at Brum as London is a big disappointment.
    BTW Matte White on an RS4 is the way forward!

    You say your insurance isn't interested, but surely you have to tell the DVLA??
    If not, the coppers could have a field day with you.
    Even a cursory radio check will say "black Audi"
    Lo and behold, it's a white one in front of them.
    Blue lights and embarrassing roadside stops for you.

    nope, not a permanent colour change, so don't need to inform DVLA, already checked, some insurance companies make a note of the colour change, but very rarely does it effect a premium.

    Don't think the DVLA is up to date with some of their protocols, or this is a loop hole, but I've spoken to them and there is nowhere for them to even record a temporary colour change

    My mate who has the Z4M is a Police officer and he has changed the colour on the V5.. So, up to you.. But he saw it necessary.. In my eyes its worth it for the sake of taking a trip to the local DVLA office and preventing getting stopped by the police every time it comes up as a Black RS4 when its obviously white, your going to get stopped and have to explain it all etc..

    It doesn't cost anything, and its not permanent, if you go back to the paint, then you just do the same again..

    Looking forward to the pics. It looks like white is becomming the new black. Seen a few white Audi's and they all have looked fantastic. Lucky enough to see a brand new RS6 Avant yesterday in white - absolutely gorgeous it was. Just parked in the local retail park car park - next to a red RS6 Avant of all cars!

    The SLR is painted, you can see the weave throught the paint.

    Am I missing the point?

    Edit: yes I am missing the point, you just wanted to see a matt white car...

    As a rule I don't like the optics grille look - just not my cup of tea. But a gloss black grille on a matt black car - now that works!

    Also a matt aluminium finish on that A3 grille would look insane.

    Could just be a vinyl wrap with the carbon pattern printed in it!
    The black A5 is the meanest A5 i've seen! Quite like that.

    I think you would look like a complete Kn*b if you got fake carbon effect wrap, just my opinion of course

    i recon just plain white will look killer
