    Should i go for yellow on my A3? or any other exclusive color?

    Im about to order my A3.
    A3 SB 1.4 COD
    Led lights
    panoramic sunroof
    black design package
    s-line exterior
    Leather/alcantara
    sportseats
    Rear parking sensors
    18" rotors

    Im thinking about going exclusive for Imola yellow. Is it to bold? I now its gonna be harder to sell and so.

    Anyone seen a A3 8V in yellow, or any other cool color.
    IMO i think the standard colors are a bit boring.

    Any other advice for exclusive color?

    I always used to want a yellow A3/S3 but unless your planning on keeping it forever its a big expense. If money is not really a concern then go for it. I'd get some black alloys though if it was me, not so sure about yellow on silver. Looking at your spec, i was told you couldn't order the rotor wheels anymore, would've quite liked them

    Even the S3 looks so not sure how it would look on a standard sportback. Don't think i'd be turning back to look at my car if it were in this colour, i'd most probably start walking away head looking forward and then start running as fast as i could.

    That's the same colour as Leicester City Council paints their cars I think...

    I'm sorry but that is just hideous, who in their right mind would pay for an exclusive price and have it resembling a colour close to custard when there are plenty of far nicer colours to choose from exclusive swatch. Just my thoughts but it's your money at the end of the day.

    The only exclusive colour I would consider spending mega exclusive money on is sepang blue.

    It looks amazing and will not affect future re-sale.

    Everyone have different tast aparently I love the yellow, well its not the most economic and practical color. But in a world with so many greyish Audi colors it stands out.If Im going standard color I think shiraz red would be the color for me. But to pay an extra £1000 for an exclusive paint is IMO not that expensive.

    The way I see it when you buy a new car you spec it the way you want it, it's you're dream, you don't spec what you think the next owner might want! Go for it :D when it comes to selling it may take a little longer but you may get a premium for it because it's yellow and there isn't many about

    Drive the dream :D

    There's some interesting colours here also, quite like the Crystal effect Prism Silver from the RS4.

    I like the 'turquoise ?' colour that's cool, would get you noticed.Not all the Exclusive colour are to my taste, but that's the point, its great to see a car that is a bit different now and again.It would be nice to have a slightly unique colour as chances are you probably won't see anther one the same if you go for it.If my budget had allowed a sepang blue or spirt blue would have been really tempting, but got to say Misano red certainly stands out.

    Each to their own I guess, not my cup of tea but you would have to be haunted to pay £44K for that!!!

    Yep, £44K for an S3 is a complete joke. Even for an RS3 is cutting it fine.
