I'm about to sell my S3 and upgrade to a brand spanking new S-line special edition quattro 3 door. So having never bought a car from new before I'm in the nice position of speccing the car just as I want it to be.
So, a little help on colour. I think i've narrowed it down to:
- Avus Silver
- Akoya silver
- Lava Grey
- Dolphin Grey
I test drove a phantom black with the optional 14(?) spoke BBS alloys (not the split rims!) and it looked pretty damn good, but popped back to the garage today after it had rained and all the dust that had stuck to it made it look quite messy. So talked myself out of that colour. Was really impressed with the car though, not that much slower than my S3, but has a much wider torque band!
I am deffo going for the 14 spoke wheels to be different though and wondered if anyone had any of the above colours with those wheels on it so I could see what I think looks best for me. Pics would be really helpful!!!
2nd question, I have a budget and wondered what you guys who have owned these cars feel are the best options to get.
- No charge optional 14 spoke wheels
- No charge optional piano black trim
- Symphony stereo
- BOSE speaker
- Front centre armrest
The other things i-d like to have, but think I may struggle to afford are:
- Heated seats
- Light pack
- Multi function steering wheel
- Sat Nav.... hmmm at Ł2100 plus the need for a 6cd changer at Ł350 i'm having a laugh here!!! The demo car I drove had it, and it looks awesome!
Anyway, really looking forward to getting the car, just want to get the right colour.
Appreciate your help and looking forward to joining the new A3 forum.
