    Hi Chris,

    My 2007 is basically up for sale, just taking a few things off her at the moment

    Without all the big mods, the kit list will be as follows:

    S3 front bumper conversion
    Bi-xenon headlights
    Washer jets retro fitted
    Auto levelling system retro fitted
    Auto wipers
    Auto headlights
    Rear parking sensors
    All the other usual S-Line stuff like leather seats, MFSW, black roof lining etc

    Currently on 33k but will increase a bit obviously. Well looked after and she's in the best colour, lava grey

    Let me know if you're interested

    Currently driving a 55 plate Ford Mondeo ST. But as Arnie once said...


    I'll be back!!!

    Lava Grey looks like a dull Phantom Black... better than Silver or white on an A3 though IMHO.

    Lava grey is the best colour, N8 even said when he was detailing my car how much he loved the pearl effect and the different colours that come out, especially in the sunlight

    Agreed, Lava Grey, one of my best mates has a standard Sline in LG and it trumps my Phantom!

    personally i think Phantom is the best standard colour you can buy, but the best looking A3 i've ever seen was a 56 plate 3.2 quattro S-Line Sportback in Misano with Open Sky.

    and if money were no object it's Sepang blue definitely - tho i wonder what Panther Black looks like.

    anyways this is going majorly off topic. good luck with the hunt. hope you find a car you like and you definitely won't be disappointed! just don't forget to LEAVE THIS FORUM IMMEDIATELY AFTER PURCHASE or you'll be bankrupted. but you can always sleep in the car you've had RNS-E, TV and nappa leather put into. who needs a house, eh?

    +1 on the Phantom Black as you will have gathered! BUT It is not a standard colour costs about 500 more new but what a great finish especially when it is cleaned and polished.

    Ignore what folks say about Black being difficult to keep clean, Phantom is something else IMHO>>>>

    Ahhh ... The 'Exclusive' colours cost a huge amount of money and are unlikely to result in any added value come resale. In fact the opposite can be true with some weird colours being chosen. Most used sub 3-4 year old Audis are valued 'with metallic and Bose' and will get priced down without either. The Exclusive paint is not likely to impact on this but if you like the colour and can afford it why not!

    Dolphin is metallic, Lava is Pearlescent... a far more flattering finish even on Phantom Black. Dolphin is IMHO just too John Major.

    Hmmm im not sure about black ive had two black cars and theyre a ***** i do like the lava grey jordan but i think like i put in the first post ill have to wait till im back from afghan and morocco i cant really justify buying one now and leave it sitting for 4 months bit silly, to late sub39h ive been eyeing up bits and pieces from the moment i joined the forum, split rims, coilovers, exhaust, hybrids, the lot i need to buy a car that someones done the rnse etc too i suppose, saves me a bit of money and stops the modifying bug my last car was subjected to a complete strip down and nut and bolt rebuild before i lost faith in the car and sold it for spares so i cant be doing that again
