    Audi S3 "Audi exclusive Paint" What colour would you have ?

    So Audi have an option to choose any colour on the car matched to sample, it cost Ł1 858
    Make your Audi unique by selecting your very own special quattro GmbH paint finish in any colour imaginable.



    What colour would you choose and show pictures !!!!???

    Audi s3 Custom Green

    My Personal Favorite choice as "No 1" i think would have to be the lamborghini gallardo Lime green , With some sort of grey tint to my wheels ,

    Would rather spend the £1800 on an Exclusive interior with one of the £500 standard paint colours.

    Yeah,looks boring in photos but one of the nicest colours I've ever seen in sunshine.
    Rewarded polishing like no car I've had since.
    That's actually quite a nice motor in that ebay link.
    Tempting,as a toy.

    I find them on the internet.

    I think your custom colour has to come from the Audi range, i quite like the lime green on the lambo, and think it would look stunning on a S3.

    In Germany the custom colour is 'colour to sample' so its any colour you want.

    In the UK most dealers are clueless (Sorry I know we already know that) so they quote any Audi Colour - but in fact you can have any colour....Hance Crawley Audi having a TT2 finished in Honda Pink (from teh Jazz).

    Any colour for me would probably be a nice Yellow - like the VW Leomon Yellow:

    it is any colour as said above and you dont need the code, a picture will do and they will paint match it like dulex do.

    If i go for another Audi I may go down the exclusive route also, id have liked the daytona grey off the RS4 on my S3....

    I've actually thought of colour I'd consider, Deep Blue like on the Golf R32. Looks alot better in the metal than it does in pics. Wonder if it'd look as good on an A3

    I always liked the colour of my Mark IV - Jazz Blue - not sure what it would look like on an A3 though.

    I think an S3 in the R26 colour would look good - you could even order the graphic set from Renault to go with it

    I'd say you'd have to do a PaintChop trial before you order though.
