      The struggle is real OP. To many sweet options to decide.


      Whatever you decide go with a black interior. I love brown interiors except with green.

      That's how Steve McQueen like it.

      I don't think it needs to be this hard. Goodwood on the saddle/tan in the launch photos is all you need.

      Go with Goodwood and not the Black Optics Package. Not a fan of black wheels and accents over dark green.

      I also really like Verde Ermes

      I think you'll either need to go with something metallic or that matte color on the R8.

      There's a matte brown GLE here in town, and while the vehicle is heinous looking, the color is super cool.

      1. I hate matte colors on luxury cars. They look flat and way too trendy.

      2. The angles of the RS6 really requires a sparkly metallic paint job. I really like the green that was posted on the Ferrari above. I would caution you against non-metallic and subtle shades of green. This is an RS mother-f***ing 6. It's not a wierd half-year model of the A4. Get it in a color that is befitting of the car.

      3. I hate that you posted that Rennbow link. A lot. (productivity...gone)

      This one was on the gram



      Looks real. It was tagged in Monaco.
      Couldn't daily a matte paint.

      I do like the greens but I will be ordering mine in one of the Blues like Ara or going with Suzuka Grey if offered.

      I would never ever buy a matte paint finish no matter what. Way too delicate to take care of. If you really love a matte finish then buy your car in a resale worthy shade of silver or gray and then wrap it with vinyl to achieve the trendy look that is already passé in my opinion.

      Can you see which colors are being ordered to be sure you're getting something totally unique?

      I saw this thread again this morning and had the thought that this isn't an E-class wagon (which looks good in brown/earthtones). If there are no others coming in Nogaro Blue, or if it's not a standard color, I feel like it should get some consideration.

      Since we've brought up non-greens...

      I think the RS6 Avant would pull off a deep purple or ruby extremely well.

      Back to greens, I agree with the others who say shy away from dull-ish colors. Shame that Sonoma is already taken by the RS5, as that has the perfect amount of pop!

      Go with your instincts and get Goodwood! The car will look beautiful in any shade of green, but Goodwood is ab-so-lute-ly DIR.

      edit: Oh, fwiw, I've seen that car ^ in person. It's stunning.

      This is mildly OT and I know what I said before but just to prove how much I like matte colors, I do own these (stupid photobucket watermarks):





      However as someone said earlier I doubt I could do it as a daily, it would be constant maintenance. Also after now owning a flat (non-metallic) color, even being light grey (nardo) I don't know if I could do it in a darker shade unless I wanted to polish it four times a year. Metallic just hides so many light swirl marks.

      VW owns Porsche, but Porsche owns VW, so I'd say they get final say on the matter.

      I voted Laguna Seca Blue. Or Victory Red. Or Duke White.

I initially knew I was going to order Goodwood Green as I have seen a few C7s in the color, in the flesh, and it looks AMAZING. But it got me thinking. There are many, many great greens under the VW umbrella, so I figured I would ask the all knowingly TCL their collective opinion. I planned on doing the brown/tan interior that the launch car with the Goodwood Green, but I am not set on that. Furthermore, if that color is not a standard color, I will just be going black. Of which, I still may, so keep that in mind as you give your suggestions.

      Goodwood:


      Irish:


      Forest:


      Lago:


      Moss:


      Cactus:



      Those 6 are ones that I have thought about, but what does TCL think? What am I missing? Post some others that you think would work well!!
