    Talking Finally Ordered S3 After Much Debate - Thanks All.

    Right,

    Ordered from Preston Audi with 8% discount approx.

    Audi S3 3 DR
    Imola Yellow
    Black Buckets / Headlining
    RSN-E DVD Sat Nav
    Bose
    iPOD
    GSM Phone Prep in FCA
    Electric Folding Mirrors
    Light & Rain Sensor Pack
    Interior Light Pack
    Accoustic Rear Parking Sensors
    Exclusive Extended Leather Pack On Knee Pads / Door Arm Rests ( Black Leather / Yellow Stitching )
    Exclusive Steering Wheel / Controls Pack ( Black Leather With Yellow Stitching )
    Tyre Preasure Monitor
    Through Load System.

    Thanks for all your help etc. Had to make a decision in the end as I wanted to be different. The lambo Blu Caleam is now the same colour as Audi RS6 Sepang Blue for anyone else's info.

    Here is a pic of an S5 with Imola for reference.

    agree

    I tend to agree with NHN, imola yellow is a very brave but rare colour to go for, thinking of selling on would perhaps incurr a few problems, doubt i could look at it first thing after a night out too!

    Problem with the green was that they couldnt guarantee that the car would look like the picture i provided and so didnt want to take the risk with 35k.

    I am having the stitching in the extended leather pack and steering wheel / gaiter / knee pads / handbrake in black leather with yellow stitching.
    Audi are yet to confirm the exclusive option with audi etc. Approx 1200 all in all.

    He is also enquiring about the seat stitching in yellow but wondered if this was abit OTT?

    You can't capture a decent photo of Imola IMO and it is each to their own but I like it!

    No, I personally didn't like it on yellow even though black / yellow are complimenting colours. It kind of took the front of the car away. " My thoughts only ".

    Yeh, like I say Iv'e seen many pics on the web and alot don't do justice even though it is YELLOW.
    It has to have a little agressive look / lines to wear yellow.

    i ordered my 15/9, and got delivery confirmation last week for week 48, which means i should have it 1st week of dec. the sad story is that i will have it parked in my garage for a month....its going to be tuff. I am not willing to pay taxes for all of 2007 just to drive for 30 days. SO, Jan 1st will be my first ride...

    Mine will take a little longer because I have basically been told about the audi exclusive process.

    They order the car etc as to the current spec and it goes to factory for build. Car gets built and passes QC with some bits being the standard black parts.. However for the exclusive bits etc i.e steering wheel etc. They then take the car to a different dept and "rip / dismantle " the factory bits and replace with exclusive requirements.

    If you can understand than badly written description

    Sorry that they couldn't guarantee how the green would turn out - I think it would have been fantastic.

    However, Imola is an awesome colour and will look stunning, and the money you saved on custom colour has allowed the very cool sounding extended leather pack.

    Enjoy!

    no, not yet Dave.
    was told that it will enter the country on the 2nd Nov.
    and need a few days to clear customs.
    and a few more days to get on a truck and be delivered to the stealers.

    i'm just glad most of the wait is over, but honestly its the last few days that really suck.
    i've been waiting since 18th June

    oh, i forgot to mention full nappa leather ("studded" inserts) and
    arm rest in the spec i went for

    Am i the only one who thinks that S5 up there ^^^ is a complete horror show? The S3 should look nice in yellow but christ, saloons and big coupe's do not belong in yellow.....Looks like a Hummer

    For me that green doesn't work....at all. Had it been a pearl colour or more of a viper green (as picture below) it would look a lot better. Vivid bright green on the wrong car can look like it's a corporate vehicle and should have some sort of advertisement down the side.
