    Hi Gman

    Must say thats is different! I think it would of looked beter in a different colour instead of green, but that just what i think. I do like the roof mind...The car does stand out! Thought about having the grill surround in green aswell instead of chrome? What other plans do you have for the car?

    Props to you for daring to be different. I'd rather my car blend in with the masses because I drive like a twat, and it'd be better if people cannot remember me.

    "dude..some red audi was blasting down the street last night, the idiot overtook me from the left and gave me the finger!!"
    "which red audi? there are so many of them around."

    I'd reckon that'd be much different if he could remember your green grille or checkered roof.

    You got some nice plans. Will look good with some decent alloys and lowered! What sort of power would it be running on the big turbo?


    Agree with lee there!

    like the roof a lot mate, not too sure about that grill tho, possibly if the grill was black and the chrome and audi badge were green, or possibly if you change the chrome to black? i think black alloys with a green rim would look nice!

    do they do bright green lamin-x????? lol

    Woah I missed this thread!

    Interesting mod. I think just doing the grill but in red would look half decent.

    Fair play for trying something out though!

    Yh. I will go with the same as my grills and engine cover. With the gold silver flick with a metal flake thin it would look good. And then that would be all the green done. As any more I reckon to much. Wouldn't want to ruin it although reading some of the coments I aprently have lol..

    Still each to there own.
    I notice on your pic you have ttaken the bbs's of.

    Mate, you must surely like green! The only thing that I like green is the colour of my grass and me thinks you've been smoking too much of it!!!! Only kidding. Brave mods and certainly sticks out like a "French kiss at a family re-union".

    Good luck with the rest of the mods.

    At first I thought it looked a bit bright standing still in the sun.

    On the move I reckon it'd look pretty sweet, I'd smile if I saw you pass me on a windy road. :respekt:
