    Which colour out of the above do you think is the best for the S3, for looks, future sales value and also for modifying etc.

    the only colour i'd avoid would be goodwood green - personally i like it as it's quite understated but a lot of people don't rate it highly so it might be harder to sell on afterwards.

    oh - and you missed off missano red & white (never seen a white S3 yet though but it was an offered colour)

    If white was on there then that would be my choice for sure!!

    White is my definate colour of choice, but they are a bit rare so it would have to be red or ming blue.

    My opinions are Noggy Blue and Dolphin grey are the most desireable colours, but even though Black ones are the most common, they are the fastest colour. :blackrs4:

    Everyone knows that Nogaro blue is worth 0.5secs on the sprint to 60, and about the same on the 1/4 mile. Fastest colour by far :)

    Yellow is the brightest colour then :cool: ... next...

    Boooring... silver is the colour of year 2000, it's a safe colour, not the best, all my opinion of course.

    Nice car btw Matt :respekt:

    There's a kind of pastel blue I've seen a couple of times too. Otherwise I think black looks cool, but somehow the grey shows off the wheel arch bulges etc a bit more.

    I have to agree with you!
    No silver in the pole, so second best for me is Imola.

    Personally i'd love a black one, (with 18's and alu mirrors) but cleaning mine once a week is bad enough, I'd never sleep with trying to keep a black one clean.
    The rears of S3's just seem to hoover up the dirt !

    dolphin grey for me!
    I posted the exact same poll on another site a while back.
    grey and black got equal votes for 1st place, but obviously black is alot easier to find.

    Mine's black and it's the best colour, but only when clean! Nothing sparkles like a clean black car.

    I love the nogaro blue - I only ever see it on "S"/"RS" Audis.

    I think silver is nice too.

    I don't care much for the greys or greens, red is OK.

    The imola yellow is a head turner, but not for me.
