    Hi guys. I am in the process of ordering a new Audi A3 2.0l TDi S Line. I am really struggling with the colour though. Does anyone know which one is best?

    Cheers.

    It's entirely down to personal preference really.

    The new A3 comes with aluminium trim strips surrounding the side windows, so I think it will look good in the darker colours due to the contrast. I've gone for Scuba blue.

    I agree. I think the car looks better with darker colours although I've never been a fan of blue cars. Wish there was something similar to Lava Grey but looks like my next one will be black. Again.

    Another vote for Daytona Grey, it is what I plan to order! I do love a 'what colour is best' thread! :)

    Thanks guys, I'm a straight man so have no idea with colour. I'd ask the missus but she is angry with me for ordering a 3 door car when we have a new born baby so won't help.

    Daytona Grey is growing on me. A lot. Need to see a car in this colour before making a final choice though.

    Having come from dolphin grey and switching to black, whilst I love the black (when it's properly clean), this love can only be achieved for about 10 minutes after washing. It's a ruthless colour for showing any imperfection, and hence my next will be Daytona grey.

    I'm very curious to see Shiraz Red in the flesh - Garnet Red on my old 8P2 2.0T quattro was a really stunning colour and I'm less keen on the Brilliant Red of my 8P3 S3.

    The Beluga brown sounds an interesting, albeit a brave colour option..

    It has to be Phantom Black... A3's look so good in it!

    Daytona can look OK in certain lights but a bit brown and not quite BLACK.

    I guess I will be ordering Glacier White too!

    It's a great colour!

    Almost certain my next car will be a new A3 Sportback 150ps S Line.

    I expect to order in the next couple of weeks!

    I've gone for glacier white with privacy glass, thought that would look pretty good.... Seeing the grey does look very very nice, bit gutted about white now lol.

    Hey guys!

    This is my first post around here, so hello to everybody :beerchug:

    I'm ordering this week a new Audi A3 2.0 TDI... but really struggling with colour. I know it's a personal thing, but I would like to recollect your opinions.

    I love chestnut brown Milano leather interior, so... what are in your opinion the best colours for that choice? what about ice silver? I've seen it in some spots and I think it's cool with brown interior

    Has anyone seen/own a new A3 in Phantom black?

    I would like Daytona but don't think I'll be getting an S Line spec so can't have it and Monsoon grey looks a bit too light/green for me.

    So am edging towards Phantom black but need to see one and also does anyone know how it holds up to a bit of dirt? I'd it as bad as normal black or does it work better for that purpose?
