    What factory side blade options were there on a v8 ?

    Hi there,


    This is just a general question I’ve always wondered as I see different audi r8’s.

    I’ve seen silver, black, body coloured, matte black, carbon even light grey

    Are these all factory options ? Or which ones were factory options ?

    Re: What factory side blade options were there on a v8 ?

    My understanding is there were several color options for the side blades (think a silver color was standard on the v8s at one point) in addition to paint match and gloss carbon. Matte carbon (on the gen 1 at least) was a GT exclusive I believe.

    Plenty of people also wrap them in my experience, which adds to the variety you might see. Not sure how you'd find exactly what colors were factory without finding an order guide for the year you're interested in though.

    When I ordered my 2015 V8 in Daytona Grey, the side blades were painted in Quartz Grey Metallic.
    Obviously carbon fiber was an option.

    This makes sense. I’ve recently put down a deposit on one. But on my search - all the ones without mag ride and B&O had the silver trim so I assumed it was a basic/standard side blade

    There was the option of lava grey, oxygen silver, carbon or simply to have them the same colour as the rest of the car.

    I’ve seen this online. Would you say this is CF or Lava grey?

    That's Lava my car came with tem but I swapped for CF it's the nuts
    Don't listen to people who advocate CF wrap or hydrodipping. The real thing in the sun light is stunningly beautiful
