I think i am going mad, unless anyone on here can help. I saw Balck S5 (I think) seriously I went up and saw these close up cos they looked so nice. It was black but had satin silver side skirts (same as mirrors) - is this an option or will someone have had these painted up - trust me they made a massive difference

thanks::confused:

That was probably custom paint job on the side skirts that the owner did after taking delivery of the car. Even with the "Audi Exclusive" exterior/interior custom color choice options (available in some countries), I doubt Audi would allow customers to pick and choose which individual exterior components they want to have painted a different color.

If they are the same color as the exhaust valance it could look nice.

I would really like to have seen this. Was the ENTIRE side skirt finished in satin silver?

I'm not sure if that would really be to my taste ? Maybe it has to be seen in the flesh.

I think silver skirts would look cheap, theres enough silver on the car already. I appreciate its personal choice and I'm not always right, but I am this time ;) :cool: Its not an SUV, if you want the skirts to look like steps go ahead and paint them !!!

feedback on painted skirts

Hmmmmm.... Are those ones done the same finish as the Y's ??
yes they are, i took the risk in doing this and here is my feedback

1 - up close i dont dig it cause youre viewing the skirts from above and they look kind of flat.
2 - If you like a clean look on your car dont do this, cause it does stand out.
3 - Further away it looks much better (e.g. car driving from the other lane, as you can see the blade like shape especially when there is sun reflection
4 - I still need more shine out of it cause it still looks plastic in the shade so i am most likely to foil it to get better metal effect.
5 - I did this today and so far i got 3 compliments on the skirts and couple of cars slowed down to check it out, this will always be ugly for some and nice for others but definetly a head turner.
6 - I will take high res pictures tomorrow with a real camera that can better capture color than mobile cams

I hope this helps
