Crash is building a car for Gordon, a friend from MN. Gordon was getting restless and decided to have his daily driver bossed up a bit, a 2003 Audi A8.

Two tone with a gunmetal insert on the hood, wheels, drop, tint (windows and taillights), and exhaust was on the menu. Tint was done by Joe of Untouchables, apparently he is out of retirement :thumbsup Pinstriping by Tom.

This is the final product:

I like it -- it's "overdone" but not to the point that it's tacky. i'd love to have it

Over done? Its a simple two tone and a set of wheels.

I don't see how you can over do a car that has a power sun visor for the back window, maybe its just me though. I think its a pretty bad daily driver

This guy has more money then time and has chosen to keep the mudflaps to avoid time in the body shop. He is all about TIME is MONEY, if you know what I mean. That, and he drives the car a lot and doesn't have the time to constantly be cleaning it either.

From the back, the wheels look WAY to wide for the car and it adds a cartoon effect with the tiny mudflaps.

I do like how the red in the wheels goes with the red pin stripe, but I'm not feeling the wheels that much. Looks good though!

Looks good, but it needs some blacked out headlights.

Its original, which is cool .. I can't help feeling like the red in the wheels just sticks out way too much though . I think if it were me I'd swap the silver and black portions of the car, so the silver was center/top and the black was lower/sides . I think that would bring the tri-color theme together more .

Not bad! Sharp looking work, only thing I'm not crazy about is the amount of red on the wheels, other than that, I'd drive it in a heartbeat for sure.

That is reeeeallly nice. Love the style! I agree it is "gangsterish", which I think looks good.

The only thing I'd do different is give it dual exhaust icon_lol.gif

Clean, but not my style / doesn't look too nice to me. Maybe it's the red red calipers / wheels, or the hood being a completely different color. Otherwise, looks good!

I love it.

Maybe the red calipers throw it off? I'm not sure. Something about that combo.

I understand the point, tie it in with the pinstripe, so it kind of works.

Kudos to your friends at Crash!

I think it looks really good icon_cool.gif

It would be perfect if it was a newer style Audi. I don't like the older style as much.
