    True, but the mirrors, chrome etc. seem to contrast nicely with Avus silver (note- AVUS silver) - which is the silver used on the car in the S3 publicity brochure.

    So if Audi themselves think silver is the best colour to show off their best car, who am I to argue?

    Anyway, colour is a personal choice! Enjoy the car Spook! That's the main thing... If you prefer silver get silver, it is your car in the end...

    When I enquired about a touch up paint stick from the dealer they called it Silver Sea.

    Must be right as there is only one silver colour for the S3.

    Isn't Avus silver available on every other A3 ?
    So...by choosing 'exclusive' paint for your S3,you're effectively making it look like umpteen other A3's ?
    Or have I misunderstood ?

    Avus Silver is available on S-Line models as standard, and in my opinion it should be available as part of the S3 standard colour palette as it seems to suit the car better than the standard silver (which is still pretty good).

    I'm hoping that Audi will open up the colour palette a bit more in the 2008MY revisions......

    i think your abit silly paying £1600 to have avus silver on an S3 - your getting an S3 have an S3 colour for god sake! keep your 1600 quid in ur pocket ur gonna need it for fuel!!!!

    + why on earth are you having the piano inserts??? tellin you you will regret it - breath on them and they scratch!
