They're pretty rare, I've only seen one or two members on here have it.

@ViperG has one of them

I think mine was more of a promotion where 5 of each color were made. Where @VeeDubb was an individual paint job. I thought mine was rare until I saw people with custom ordered colors.

Thanks they are super rare. Really something unique that I never noticed another company offering. And the quality of the paint is amazing.
I'll have to measure some factory Audi paint some day but when I measured mine it was double the normal thickness, If I remember correctly I was at 8mil - 203 microns. I had every intention of using this as my daily driver but after seeing how rare they actually were I mixed in a second car for a daily driver to avoid driving mine to often. Especially with bad weather or if I'm running around in the city. I still drive it a lot but I'd like to keep it looking new for as long as I can. And so far the car has never been driven in winter salt. I have people stop me to take pictures or ask me if I had it painted myself because they've never seen one on the road.

There's only one downside to a custom color there's no paint code on your sticker or at least there isn't on mine so getting any touch up paint will be difficult.
My car has a clear bra on the nose and hood and on some of the trunk so that should help with rock chips.

It's a clear film on parts of the car kind of like a wrap but clear for protection. You can't even see it as you can see in the pictures. I'm also thinking about ceramic coating the car.
