    I guessed correct with the colour!

    looks awesome, If I had the cash to buy an S3 it would be orange, If i won the lottery my Murcielago would also be orange!

    Orange just rocks!

    wow cheers for all the amazin commnets

    i got the car resprayed to to there was alot of imperfection in the body work and paint work and i love my cars and always want them at there best so got a full respray in my perfect colour lol.
    i dnt have money to burn lol its just i take alot of pride in my cars and have the moddin bug big time.
    also my car has 100k on the clock so even tho its only 07 you could see it had done the miles in the bosy work.
    the work is 2nd to none and is an amazing job, it was done my body technical limited in grangetown middlesbrough next door to were i work, got thw whole job at a cracking price due to knowin the bloke really well and he does alot of work for my dads company.

    over all im am over tho moon ive only had the car since november and it is exactly how i want it
    up next is the s3 front brake conversion im gettin of gaz m and a new head unit then later more power inc full engine rebuild but atm i love the power it has so that will be very distant future

    cheers chris

    Looks great. Did you consider doing the gloss black details matt? I think that would look pretty cool.

    Presumably you meant to site the s-line badges at the front? Should do those black too.

    I was thinking of the DPF delete when my car *finally* arrives, but does it smoke under load or anything? I just can't be bothered with a smoke screen is all, especially as I have already organised a re-map and apparently that makes it worse?

    with the tuning i have had done, the car smokes a little until on boost, however it isnt bad enought to see it thorugh the rear screen, i'll try and get a vid at some point so you can see also hear it, deffo worth doing tho makes a huge differance

    beanoir - yes all the engine bay is solar orange too, it is even done to the same finish as the exterior as he knows i attend shows

    Did they do the colour change without removing the glass? Not ideal, as however good the masking job, the paint doesn't get right behind the rubbers, and there's always a danger of it peeling from around there.

    Looks good though, the gloss black touches make it.

    no they didnt remove the windows as i told them not to, also he pealed the rubber over and stuck them down then masked, he has done a gr8 job as when you pull the rubber back now it is orange right behind with no sign of the old colour, i no its not ideal but, imo thought it was pointless removin them and unnessasary expence

    Great pics. Have you considered some sort of pin-striping on the wheels in solar? Either around the edge of the rim or to outline each of the 5 spokes? I just think it would give the wheels a nice bit of detail.

    chris breezy your car is awesome man. Its a good feeling when your walking back to your car from somewhere and you see its completely immaculate paint job all around. Not a scratch in sight. I bet you turn heads wherever you go! How long did the work take and have you ever modified a car to this xtent b4?

    Get yourself the 2009 rear lights, son!
