    It's both! Called Panther black, it's a crystal paint that has purple and other colours in it which you can see in sunlight :)

    Really smart looking, just in time for those summer glimmering days!
    You do realise you'll be washing this every weekend ;)

    I don't understand how so many people in the UK were able to get such shorter build dates.

    I ordered my S3 saloon on December 19th and I've been given week 23 as my build date.

    Anywayyyy spec:
    Panther Black
    S-Tronic
    Comfort pack with adaptive cruise control
    Interior lighting pack
    LED lights
    Advanced key
    Tyre pressure monitor
    Hold assist

    Update:

    Finally got through to the dealership. Build date has been brought forward to 4th May with delivery at the end of May!! Sooo less than 6 weeks :) butterflies have started to kick in.

    Just picked my a3 s-line saloon 1.6 tdi

    Glacier white
    Comfort pack
    Cruise control
    Audi sound system
    Panoramic sunroof
    Park assist

    Only had it 2 days but its alot better than my 8p a3 black edition.
    I traded my a3 and got my saloon in 2 weeks due to one sitting in the compound.
    Which meant I didnt get to choose what I wanted on my car :(
    Could I get any package like interior light package fitted now I have the car ?

    Impressive spec for a company car! Which lease company are you going via?

    I had a monthly budget of £400 which got me a 2.0TDi S-Line Saloon in Daytona Grey with SD Sat Nav and Privacy Glass. That's it!

    You obviously had a bigger budget, but would be interested to know what all that cost!

    Thanks The King, very nice indeed!

    Looks similar to what we've ordered, ie S3 saloon in Sepang Blue, and privacy glass, but we also ticked the driver assist package and a different 19" wheel package (5 arm V spoke).

    Can't wait until we take delivery, maybe at the end of this year, maybe early next year.

    I have on order an S3 Saloon which although originally ordered end November 2013 and changed very slightly early February 2014 is not due to be built until wk 34 (mid August) and delivered in September (I've posted the full story in S3 delivery times thread) with no really satisfactory explanation why from the Dealer. I'm having trouble waiting for it but there's no option; spec as follows:

    Audi S3 Saloon with DSG gearbox
    Glacier White Metallic
    18" 5 parallel-spoke wheels (S-Line wheels)
    SD card-based Sat Nav
    Comfort package
    Interior Lights package
    Tyre Pressure monitor

    Finally found a dealer with a build slot, so back on for the S3 again. Currently down for Week 31 build. Order is
    Panther Black
    Folding mirrors
    Comfort Pack
    3D black inlays
    Sat Nav
    Internal Lighting pack
    Audi speakers
    TPMS

    However, have just asked the dealer if they can change it to Sepang Blue with Tornado Red Callipers without delaying the build. All Mr Kings fault!
    In the hands of fate now :drool:

    Here some more pics. I have to say, I absolutely love the car. Engine and exhaust sound are amazing. Haven't floored it to the red line yet (doing the easier running in period).

    I altered my order back in February to include the Comfort Pack which includes auto headlights, auto wipers, cruise control and rear parking sensors all for less money than just the auto lights and wipers and cruise control I had originally ordered, and it pushed back my order by 5 months despite promises to the contrary. So be careful!

    Really love it. Beautiful colour - which doesn't seem to be available here at all (no blues offered if you configure your car with the configurator on Audi UK's website..)

    Kikin, while on holiday in Peru I visited Lima, many cars had neon around the reg plate.
    Not sure if it would enhance or spoil the look of your lovely S3:)

    Hahaha, not my style. Normally bad quality neon and most of the cars with that are taxi cabs.
    Never more happy with my car. Just looking for a future upgrade to 19´s (here it wasn´t an OEM option)
