I am about to do the A8 brake upgrade on my A4. I want to get the gold plated rotors to go with my silver car with Red calipers....I think it will look nice but i havent seen any pics on a car.

Doesnt the plating wear off after a few days?

I work in a planting plant. Cad is protective for shipping, once you use them it will wear right off. European cars with gold rotors, actually have GOLD on the rotors in a 30mil+ thickness. Avg cad is 3-5m thickness.

Waste of money and time. Same goes for zinc.

Is not for the braking surface but for the areas around it so it doesnt rust.
