    Since the car is a mess right now, I wont get it wrapped, painting will be cheaper for sure :)
    And my car is in a mess shape! :)

    What was in my mind; Racing mica! But in some open air shots changed the color into blue a lot, which I dont desire..

    But that violet & estoril are ahead right now;

    Venetian Violet: Audi Exclusive Venetian Violet RS 4 Avant on Display at Audi Forum Neckarsulm - Fourtitude.com

    Estoril BLue: Audi RS 6 Avant in Estoril Blue Crystal Effect - Fourtitude.com

    And estoril seems slightly tempting! :) And my rims are darker color & interior is dark red. So some colours had to be out of the play like ipanema, apple candy which are great ones..

    I thiink the winner will be estoril. I love the venetian velvet BUT its a bit risky.. It can be turn into a lame purple :s
    For Estoril, its gonna turn in navy blue at worst I guess! :)

    Whats the color code of Estoril Blue Crystal effect? And an ordinary paint shop can match the color without anything special, as long as we have the right paint code?

    Thnaks guys for all your suggestions and opinions by the way :)

    I used to have an Estoril blue E36 M3. Best Colour around at the time. Loved it.

    But as mentioned above, if you do get a scratch it is a pain to cover it, as the paint is hard to match.
    Just make sure you have plenty of left over paint.

    Yea, I checked this, I remained neutral :))

    the light grey parts will be spot on with a darker color indeed, like my mirrors, rs3 bumper lower parts, dark grey rims etc. Daytona similar color will be better in that condition BUT the estoril blue II is soo tempting.. Also the car registration wont be any trouble if I remain in grey color. But again estoril tempts!!! :))

    Took the words right out of my mouth!!!

    Was just scrolling down to see if anyone had mentioned this colour.....timeless classic of a colour IMO. A bit like nogaro blue :cool:

    Couldn't agree more, it's meant to be a sporty car with class , those sort of colours ruin the car IMO but everyone has different taste so each to there own

    Edit ; I don't like it on the rs4 either

    I know I voted daytona, and it is is a lovely color, but a daytona RS3 look-a-like is a bit ... tame?

    I agree, the grey or similar ones will be softer, but an estoril will be sharp I guess? It will catch ur eye anytime.. This is why I'm thinking on it deeply :)

    Violet - purple stuff is so risky.. In Sepang, it will be like navy at worst, but I do not want to have a car with a lame purple :)

    No one knows the exact color code of SEPANG BLUE?

    Paint code for Sepang blue is LY5Q or LY5Q/E9.

    Great choice btw, sepang is an awesome colour!
