BTW there is also a GT coupe in Germany being used as a Nurburgring Ring Taxi! I don’t know which numbered car it is so not sure if it’s already on the list?

Roger, If you've got a photo of my window sticker PM it to me. Mine is #292, the most expensive !! LOL.
I've now converted the interior to European GT spec with Sparco seats etc. and a Red / Grey / Black color scheme though.

Slight correction, #292 is a GT Spyder but it's in an Audi Exclusive color: Lamborghini Lynx Grey Metallic
Not sure who told you that this car was a Lamborghini color - it's not, but was Exclusive nonetheless (at that time), but according to the data I have (from Audi) it is simply Daytona Gray Pearl (Z7S) ... I'll attach the docs I have to a PM for you -

While I'm here, let me get y'alls opinion on something.
I've been thinking about getting the RS-style grille for my GT, but I would want the whole thing done in matching titanium, like the existing front and rear titanium. I have a buddy with an RS5 and his has the silver grille that looks really sharp on his Suzuka Gray. What do you think? We've all seen them in black. So how do you think one would look in matching GT titanium?
I have a Gen1 V10+ and looked into this with 2 of the forum vendors. After being on the fence about it, I think it ruins the horizontal lines on the front bumper and exclusivity of the GT even if the trim is matching titanium. The GT is already a special spec, so no need to try to make it something unique or to stand out. I opted not to go through with it. If I had a non-plus, then it would be a no brainer because it really looks great with all the black trim vs the titanium.

If you still want to go this route RNlabas did it and recommended 3M’s M230 Matte Gray Aluminum as being pretty close and the cost was $75. I was offered a free wrap after purchasing several items from vendor UPD on here, but the honeycomb mesh is still glossy. If you go to your garage and look at the front honeycomb, you will see how badly gloss clashes. This may not be a big deal on a non-GT, but I think these details are important for a nice spec like yours. There are many sellers on aliexpress/alibaba/ebay that sell a matte version if interested.

The other vendor on here that makes their own using an OEM donor part and paints the trim titanium wanted something like $1800.

I hope this helps.

HamannP has a point about the gloss, but quite honestly for me, it's not a matter of badly, just a matter of note. If I could've (and I might still) repaint the grill satin or matte it would look better, but I am still pretty happy about the clean look of the RS grill. The gray trim WAS a need for me and the wrap does look right ...

I did it and am glad I did. I also paint matched the titanium bits front and rear to my Phantom Gray Pearl. I'm about to engage in some further appearance changes but won't detail until complete as I'm certain it may well stir up strong opinions and I don't have a flameout handy LOL

Looks nicely done, not too much and not too little. Life would be extremely boring if we all drove the same cookie cutter cars (same colour, wheels, spec etc)!

Changing things up through visual and performance mods keeps things interesting and gives everyone something to talk about on this forum!

Well, since somebody parked "on" my hood, while in the shop I'm going to make some changes I think. The matte CF exterior touches (engine vents, WS surround, canards, mirrors, diffusers) I'm lacquering to gloss. I think it will update the car a bit, freshen it if you will. The brake calipers, which are faded entirely, I'm going to paint match Phantom Gray Pearl to the car, and the rims I'm going to do a transparent dark red (close to the GT red if not dead on) over gloss on the spokes, windows and outer rim with gloss black barrels. The tire lettering goes away. At least, that's the plan. . .

Re faded brake calipers, my detailer managed to bring them back to life without having to go through an expensive refurbishment.

No, it was another detailer closer to where I live - Minutia Detailing

However I’m sure Jordan will be able to replicate the same results!
