    Well, when i bought my S3, the owner said it had been parked under a tree. Wasn't bad but you could see signs on the roof.
    I could have just had the roof painted (or tried mopping it), but i had something bigger planned!

    IBIS White!

    Not quite finished but you get the jist!

    I wish that they did the 8l in the uk in white, real shame. Car looks mint mate.
     
  7. Looks brilliant! I was thinking IBIS white for mine. Did you get the whole engine bay done or just the inside of the wings?

    Im torn between:
    Ibis White
    Solar Orange
    or
    Sepang Blue (Audi R8)

    looks nice mate, i think black paint the audi signs on the boot and front grill black possibly with the wheels black would look great!

    That looks amazing mate, great job especially with the matching interior!

    Shane is right you need to show that bay some love! A few coats of 303 Aerospace protectant will have that looking factory fresh!

    Looks nice, but my favourite colour for 8L s3's still has to be Avus Silver.

    Thanks for the comments.
    Its not quite finished yet, just couldn't help getting pictures of it.
    All the black plastics will get a coat of black, as with the wheels.
    The badges need to go back on the rear, and it does need a damn good clean!

    Engine bay isn't fully done, just what you can see.

    Looks great. Get those rims done in Anthracite & it'll look fantastic.

    Stunning really looks good in white, as above it would have been a great colour choice if you could have it made that way.

    Chris.
     
  20. How much did the full respray cost you?

    Im thinking of getting mine done soon. I have waaaaay too many scratches on my paint work now. Time to slap on some fresh paint!

    Stunning mate, excellent job done there.

    What colour was it originally?

    Gunmetal/anthracite wheels on that would look spot on and a quick detail in the bay and a clean up of the interior and you are well on your way mate.

    Sepang Blue just about pips Ibis white for me.... I wouldn't even consider Solar Orange.

    Misano Red is a hot colour too
