    Can anyone with a White S3 and black/anthracite alloys post me a couple of pics?

    Vinyl wrapping commences next Tuesday... then the alloys will need doing

    Cheers

    Wonder if it'd look any good with the roof left black... seen some cars with black roofs and it looks pretty smart... maybe not on an RS4 though?

    White with black roof always works.

    One company I deal with has just bought a new Scirocco demo car - it has the panoramic glass sunroof (tinted), with the other half of roof painted black - looks fantastic.

    Now that, I like the sound of.

    Big fan of the Scirroco, seen a couple in the metal and they look ace.

    Do you have to inform Swansea if you vinyl wrap the car?

    Bit of a grey area I guess as the car will still be the original colour, but LOOKS like it's been resprayed

    nope, not a permanent colour change, I told my insurance, they said they didnt care.

    JonnyC - send me details or get me a quote... I still have time to swap, but want it doing next week

    Not sure about the roof, or the wing mirrors, will disuss it when I drop the car off...

    If I get fed up, the whole process is reversible in 2 hours with no damage

    Does it need any special care taken with looking after it or can you pressure wash it, even wax it etc. like you would with the original paint?

    cheers Toby

    They will have the car for 3 days, 1 day is prep (cleaning paintwork, drying etc...) so that the vinyl will bond correctly/easily.

    After care is pretty simple, no more waxes, just pressure washing etc...

    Looks really good and very interesting. That rs4 looks good after it was finished. For 800 cant really complain. Better than a fully respray if you ask me

    White RS4... wow... Would look amazing Klauster. I've seen a white RS4 cab with black alloys and it looked so nice.


    I think vinyle wrapping is great i saw this few days ago for sale... Says

    "The car has had a professional body wrap that has a 3 year guarantee. The paint work underneath is in perfect condition and finished in three colour pearl yellow."









    I'd love to try Matte black on mine too...

    Mate...all i got to say... plenty of pictures please!! Good luck.
