Oh man, that sucks!

Now that we know what colour your primer will be, you should finish it in this colour:

Grigio Reventon
Paint code: LAMBOR-0114 - PPG code: 0114

It will look awesome on a B7 'loon. FACT.
Is that a matte paint? Can't really find many good images of that colour.
It's basically just silver

It is matte with reflective particles.
No matter where you go, there you are.

I might, but that's not what was in the paint description.

Ah man - bummer about the paint Image

How about Grigio Telesto or Porsche Riviera Blue?

I’d have gone for Imola over Papaya, although bright, I think it would have been easier to live with. Nardo isn’t a bad shout. For other Audi colours that are a bit different, but subtle-ish, I quite like Oxford Green and Merlin Purple. Personally if it was a grey car so close to Daytona, I’d probably sell the orange and buy a Daytona car.

I did think about selling, but then I'd be back to square one with all the mods I've got which is a waste of time and money.

There’s a Daytona for sale now that looks to have all the mods done. However getting another is anyways a bit of an unknown. Charge it. :evil:

If I wasn't saving for our wedding + honeymoon I'd probably give it some consideration. Maybe in a year or two...

Grigio Telesto is actually a Lambo colour. But it’s close enough. Much better than the ‘crayon’ nardo grey. You could run with the papaya accents or with verde Ithaca.

Another cool choice would be green. Was an exclusive colour and not many about.
