    i have a radiant red sportback 56 plate s line , it has a lot of stone chips on bonnet and bumper from previous owner and some kind person put a deep foot long scratch on the back pannel above the filler cap the other day, anyway i was thinking of getting the front end repainted due to this , but i was worried about the colour match as people say red is a bad colour to get a good match , also do you think the bopyshop could b do a smart repaire on the scratch on the rear without having to repaint the panel? also just so i know a bit about things when i look for a repairer what laquer is best to use as i seem to remember something about useing 2k laquer instead of 1k which most use and is cheaper and not as good or hard wereing is this true , any help would be great thanks.

    I had the front end sprayed on my old red S3 due to chips and the match was perfect. If you use a good respectable bodyshop you shouldn't have any problems.

    Find out who your local Audi dealer uses if its not in-house and go direct to them.
