    Out of interests and on the back of looking into Vinyl wrapping if you could choose any colour in the known spectrum to have your car finished in what would you have??

    I have a big passion for the GT3 Green and Blue but would be fun too see what you guys / gals like.:readit:

    still the favourites from me are

    Solar Orange
    Monza Silver
    Phantom Black
    Tungsten Grey
    Sprint Blue
    Palace Blue

    call me old fashioned but i think the specced colours work, and do so well, however interior id love to see some tan leather like cognac brown :wub: with black stitching

    I Loved the tan leather interiors you can find on a rare occassion in the Beamers! Lovely, nice for a change!

    I like the green above only because its different. But I love red!

    saw a Viper Green A5 yesterday. very nice bit too loud for me. (there was a Viper green 3.2q up for sale on the 'Trader recently too!) A3s look best in black, red or grey, and S3s look best in Sprint blue. love Imola Yellow and Solar orange but think of the resale value! Sepang blue is gorgeous as well.

    cannot stand white tho. no offence to anyone out there with an Ibis car but i think it's overdone, not at all classy and will go out of fashion in a year or two

    Sepang Blue. Its not extravagant like an orange or yellow but its absolutely stunning when the sun hits it and still looks classy.

    Sepang all day long.

    I get a bit bored of the S3 colours, Sprint, Solar, Ibis, Phantom etc etc, the problem is there are so few colours to chose as standard it seems every S3 has been seen before. I kind of wish I had paid the extra now for a non-standard colour.

    Solar orange is good, but my favourite is the baby blue on the Aston Vantage V12 press car. Beautiful colour. It's a little bit less grey than the A3 in your pic Richy...

    I just cant imagine it on an A3, then when i do i think my sexuality would come under scrutiny driving around in that. But it is a nice colour.

    Have you seen a Tungsten Grey one!? I'm interested in this colour but can't seem to find a new or used car in it anywhere to look at.
