    hi mate

    Cant help with the engine but with colour, thats going to be down to personal preference

    [​IMG]

    The pics just for ref of black vs white.

    The stance of a black car is just awesome but white looks cool as its new and not many cars seem to be white on the road. Also, with white, you can see each and every line and curve!

    I prefer black and everycar I've owned to know has been black but thats jsut me :D

    With the engine, your buying a new car so i wouldnt worry too much. If anything does buckle, Audi will fix it and give you a courtsey car :D

    PS. Theres a good servicing package id recommend with Audi

    Good luck with the motor

    Had mine for nearly 12 months now - no problems to report as of yet . Been absolutely faultless.

    I'd say black but then I would - looks amazing when waxed.

    Its quite a modern engine (new in the last 12 months) dont know anyone who has one at all, i think its only in the A3 and new A4.

    But A3's in general have very few issues. :sm4:

    Got my 1.8TSFI S-Line (Black) about 3 month ago and can't fault it in any way, apart from it likes to wheel spin.... (I'm sure it's just my driving) or that's what I found going from a A3 Quattro to front wheel drive.
    Enjoy

    Wheel spins ,eh? Not even had that on my S3, maybe when the tread goes down a bit.
