    Hi,

    I need to put in my order for my replacement A3 Sportback and am a bit spoilt for choice. I have had a sportback in phantom black for the last few years and before that I had a lava grey so looking for a change.

    I have been looking at either the Dakota Grey or Condor Grey but can't seem to decide which one looks better. Part of the problem is that none of the dealers seems to have a Dakota Grey - maybe there is a reason or it is too new a colour....

    The other thing I am undecided on is if I should go with an S Line with standard half leather or for same money a Sport with full leather heated front seats. Any help would be appreciated.

    for starters, a welcome to ASN.

    personally i'd get an S-Line. it'll hold it's value better than an equivalent price Sport. and if you're getting an S-Line get Monza Silver. it has a greyish tinge to it an it looks amazing.

    best of luck, photos when you get it!

    Wonder what he ordered??

    I would go S-Line every time for the above reason or BE if you can. Not sure about Grey's, Condor looks a bit Naff in my opinion. Don't think you can better Phantom Black Really .. Silver is a bit 2000 Honda colour really I think.

    that'll mean factory order - is there much point at this stage in the life cycle? enjoy your S3 8P2.99 and when the new model comes out THEN swap i reckon (provided it's not a **** car ofc)

    Hi Iain... try a search I think this is covered elesewher.. or audi.co.uk

    Essentially wheels 17-18inch
    Seats both sport but Sline part leather
    Sline exterior spoilers etc..

    Sline better proposition in my opinion.

    Hi, after seeing the dakota grey in flesh I decided against it....looked a bit bronzy/tinny for my liking. The swatch in the dealers looked ok but the whole car didn't look so nice in my opinion. I was half convinced the dealer had his colours wrong but either way I wasn't prepared to risk it!

    I went for the black edition in the end in meteor grey. After seeing the cars in flesh I really wanted daytona grey but since this was not available the meteor it was....still waiting for it to be built :(
