    What Colour are you??

    So following on from the below thread:

    Another silver S3

    and seeing how many silver S3 owners there are on here, it would be good to know what colour your S3 is.

    I have put the standard colours down, so if you have a variant of one of the above, please elaborate and also if you choose other, please mention what colour you have.

    Cheers
    Nilz

    Nah, they were just the launch colours. Things like Ochre Yellow, Cassablanca White and Mocha Brown only lasted 6 months, and some of the more popular colours appeared on later model years as Maz has shown with his 2001 brochure.

    Oh, and I think from 2002 onwards you could have any colour you wanted provided you were willing to pay for it using the Audi Select programme.

    I'm surprised that Blue is the most popular.

    I think it's just because most of the blue owners are more active on the forum! The colour of your car probably says something about you
