I have seen both in the flesh next to each other Estoril on a S3 SB right next to an RS4 in Panther, both looked stunning but they were inside the showroom so i have yet to see them in all their glory outside in the sun.
I have went for the Estoril as my wife has a Phantom Black A1
well it's finally build week for me :) Hopefully I will get confirmation soon :D

Lucky Lad ....Enjoy!!!
slideshow is grey. car looks brilliant :)
Nice color Paul!
Similar to Volvo's Amber black...
Looks black "normally" but in some light conditions you can see it shifting in different colors...
Here is my old volvo v60:
If i decide on the S3 i'm going to go with Panther!

Very nice, along the lines of what I'm thinking but I want to add the black pack and black rails with pano roof. Here's one for you guys, will and exclusive colour make a diff come resale time ie not a horror like the yellow in this thread, something like Sepang blue/mica racing blue etc if I go down that route
Mica racing blue, looks incredible on my colleagues RS4, recommended !
I dont think paint cost will ever keep its value at resale, but the oposite is certainly true, the wrong choice will certainly hurt any resale value.
Buy a colour you like becuase you like it. Of course if you choose a custom colour of hot pink then good luck finding the one person that wants a three year old S3 in hot pink when you come to sell.
Thanks for the feedback, yes I would go for a colour I like but just trying to work out if going exclusive is a better option for me or going for the Misano with the black stuff to make the nice contrast and add more options to that.
Certainly thinking of a blue if I go down that route, Sepang/Mica/cornflower perhaps. Had Suzuka Grey on the rs3 which was a special colour indeed
i like suzuka grey but in the wrong light can look like a Primer.

Lock and load , did you use to own a Mazda rx8 ?
I'm an excited lad today. Just called the dealer to ask a question and was informed that my build week had moved forward and that the car was now built!! :) Means I will definately get it when I return from my next trip on the rigs :D
L&L , I remember you back from when I also had an Rx8 . I as sure I sold you my racing beat air intake way back then . I too have a S3 sedan on order , and had my first test drive of the sportback only last weekend down here in Albury. Was very impressive indeed . Cannot wait until end of April next year for delivery.
