    Daytona grey or Black ?

    Hello girls,

    which colour does match the best with the RS3 ?

    I found two used cars and I love both of the colors...

    thanks

    Suzuka Grey biased tho...personal preference really. Only ones I have seen about Glasgow have been Daytona Grey. I prefer the grey to the black.

    I much prefer the lighter colours, ibis first (I have one) and then Suzuka

    If I had to choose I'd go Daytona, but I had a Daytona RS4 and it shows little scratches badly, almost as bad as black, and is why I went light.

    anything is better than red though

    Daytona with black optics looks really nice, that's what I wanted but couldn't order anymore and had to settle for black.
    I think Daytona looks sportier ,black is smart/slicker.

    I have black with the alu pack and think it looks great. However, I bought this nearly new @ 1.5k miles as it had all the features I would have specced out but for £6k less than new. If I gone new and didn't opt for a alternative £2k colour choice, the grey would have been my choice.

    Both look great...

    Not sure how i'd choose between them tbh, I'd have to pick the car with the better 'spec'

    And I'd go grey, but I'm biased, even though in my 11 days of ownership I've only had it for 7 hours!

    The actual colour reference for the 'Stormtroopers' uniform is: Hoth White

    I like it in Solar Orange, and the yellow but don't think I'd be brave enough to live with it on a daily basis though...

    This has been photshopped at some point as the original pic doesn't have the orange on the wheels. Looks a lot nicer with out it.
