    A3 colours

    Does anyone have a list/link to the colours that are available for the A3 - particularly after models ie the colours they did the TDI sport in and the colours they did the S3 in!

    thanks

    S-Lines have 2 exclusive colours as well. they've always had Misano Red, and they used to have Akoya Silver (which confusingly has 2 different paint codes depending on year) but now instead of Akoya they've got Monza Silver.

    bizarrely the S3 couldn't come in S-Line colours or some standard colours, and some colours were Sportback exclusive (like Dakar Beige) - as i'm sure you can guess it all gets stupidly confusing.
    2006 Phantom Black A3 2.0T S-Line.
