    I'd be game for that depending on dates.

    Top Gear did something like this recently with its top ten roads. This is one of them

    San Bernardino Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2065 meters in the Swiss Alps connecting the towns of Hinterrhein and Misox. This road has its share of bends and hairpins but is more known for its scenic views and smooth roads. It also has a 6.6 km long tunnel but with a speed limit of 80km/h (50mph).

    The Stelvio Pass may be a challenge though!

    Yep, Nogaro blue was around for the 8L S3, and possibly even the RS2 IIRC (or a colour very similar).

    Kingfisher blue was available on the S2 Coupé, among others presumably.

    Dave, as it's your idea any chance of a separate thread to get some a feel for interest and maybe start throwing some ideas around?

    I would be up for it if time is right from work...:yum:

    Going on that RS6's theme:

    Sepang Blue
    Black Optics Grill
    Grey bit on bottom of S3 bumper painted black
    Rear Audi badge painted black
    Lower plastic part of the rear bumper painted black
    Black exhaust

    That would look fantastic :cool:

    BUMP - Dave have you got the car yet?
    I'm toying with ordering another S3 and Sepang is top of my list.
    Would love to see some pic's if you have taken delivery.

    I think Sepang is lovely on the TTRS, there are a few piccy's of them on the TTF if you need to look at some cars in that colour.

    I love it because it is very simular to my old R32 MK5 Deep Blue Pearl! I loved that when I waxed it up!

    Hi all

    Im still in the yellow s3. Its has all been approved etc, sepang with all the trimming and black grill. However there is either long delivery times or audi bolton are giving me the run around. Build date was supposed to be end of oct , then nov 6th and now week 49 i.e 6th dec

    really peed off at the moment.

    Just really cant wait

    Ahh, sorry to hear that mate.
    Is this possibly the nature of going exclusive? You pay more, but get the slooooooooooooowest service!
    What excuse are they giving you?

    No excuse. Just no reason other than its an unconfirmed date so it will shift.

    But never earlier!!!!

    Dave

    Sepang blue is the muts nuts...they had an S3 sportback in the dealer when i picked up my new A3 last month at York Audi if you were ever up that way.

    In my opinion if i had the money it would be my No.1 choice even over my favourite silver. People that say it doesnt look any different havent seen it in the flesh. I find it dark blue in one light, almost sprint blue in another light.....overall its:hubbahubba:

    Come on lottery and ill give my A3 to my missus and roll on S3 Sportback in Sepang......:lazy:

    Yeah, Sepang is an awesome colour. When I was looking around, they had the following in Docklands Audi (back in May'ish this year). A bit pricey but fairly well equipped... Pic doesn't really do the colour justice but hat off to you Dave for going the extra mile and getting this colour. I personally couldn't justify the cash over sprint blue. Cheers, KKP

    Sepang looks so different in every picture I see. It used to be a lambo colour :rockwoot:

    Do you guys reckon a silver or black grill though, might be doubting my own decision here. Please help.

    Oh god that does look good!
    It's a richer colour than sprint (and I love sprint!).
    Hmmm, making my choice so much harder.

    I agree with KKP silver all the way for me too! Black grill looks good with black cars with sounding too obvious but thats only my opinion.

    Silver is only our opnions of course so for me personally silver everyday but you decide what you want dont be talked out of something if you feel its not right, i got talked into buying my previous a3 as a 3 door. Loved the car but after a while the larger doors started to annoy me so then this time i decided to buy what i wanted...a sportback and im well impressed.

    Long as your happy mate

    Cheers

    That looks flippin amazing. Has to be a black grill but with the chrome surround. It just doesnt look right with the grey grill, but would look spot on black.

    I may have just decided my next car after seeing these pics!

    My S4 in Sepang was ordered in May, it is confirmed for build next week but was only confirmed about 2 weeks ago. originally I'd hoped for Sept 1st but it kept slipping out. Maybe they are running short of Sepang blue? :)

    Just bought a house, so maybe need to be a little more sensible and put the car off a while.

    Awesome colour but that pic is doing it no justice for me, Early 8P's in Mauritious blue look similar but i'm guessing Sepang is more of a deeper pearly colour.

    Hi Mate, I had the same problem. If you check out the detailing forum there is a thread on there titled Bird ****. Lot of info about it on there. Basically though, if its ate into the laquer you will probably have to machine polish it out, although some have managed to make it a lot better by hand.
