    Ebony Black I'd say, with Dolphin as a runner up.

    Ebony looks very classy, but...

    Dolphin is classier !

    Personally, I like the all black interior &amp; if going for Ebony, everything is black - just my opinion.

    I watched used S3's being sold by Audi for a couple of months before buying mine &amp; Ebony's weren't moving, but Dolphins were selling quickly.

    Also, last car was pearl black - Golf 4 TDI.

    At the end of the day, any S3 is the biz.

    Dolphin or Ming Blue; I've got Ming and it looks lovely in the sun - really sparkles with hints of blue and purple! With Silver leather /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    Well, it depends if you want to join the majority or be a little different!!
    I was originally looking for one of those colours, but have just bought a red 'un.
    The most frequent colours on the second hand market &amp; ex-demo cars all seem to be black ming blue or dolphin grey.

    The more I looked at the red the more I liked it as there are fewer around!!

    Never rule out any colour (except maybe the Imola!! It is a bit OTT!!!) /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif)

    Went for Ming blue myself, looks awesome when clean and in the sunshine /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/kiss.gif .

    Go for any colour other than the Dolphin grey though and youre committing to giving up at least a couple of hours of your weekend. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue_out.gif
    I can wash mine on Sunday and one trip down the road to work on Monday morning and its looking grubby, especailly if its raining. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/burningmad.gif

    Generally Silver / Grey looks clean most of the time, so if youre feeling lazy go for the Dolphin.

    Personally I dont like full leather (too sticky in the summer) so I went for the half leather half blue Alcantara, which IMO looks tasty with the Ming blue finish.

    Whatever you chose - enjoy. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    Dolphin Grey with Black leather, sweet.

    You might want to put some red interior lights in too - Jester and Audi Girl certainly liked them. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    you can get them from loads of places - A1 motor stores, C.A.R. gasoline alley, halfords, all those sorts of places.

    the map lights are push and twist jobbies, the bigger interiors are the fuse type bulbs but you need the long ones.
