    I think it looks amazing too, I have some stupid volcano black which is like the illegitmate child of Dolphin Grey and Metallic Black, and I think I might copy too, is there any guides on here about how to de chrome the grille?

    Sometimes I had held out for a dolphin grey A3 as that colour was my 1st choice.

    dolphin grey will be my first choice when looking for an S3 - seems quite rare though.
    Did they make them in that colour pre-facelift, as that is my only option really for insurance purposes :s

    Pre facelift dolphin was a different colour, cant remeber name, but it was more "gun metal" rather that the blueish tint thats in Dolphin.

    I believe Dolphin came in around mid 2002, wont find it on an S3 before this time.

    It's nothing really special - just a dechromed grill, some spacers and lowered. It does look good, but a lowered S3 is really impractical when it comes to speed bumps and inclines. Only problem with dolphin is that it completely hides the grey rubber strips along the side and on the rear bumper of the S3 making it look more like a A3 with big alloys

    Is that gospel?

    I have a 51 S3 and was told by the previous owner that it was Dolphin Grey. :(

    Any way of finding out? Colour codes etc.?

    Cheers,

    ICE

    Previously it was mineral grey. Very similar colour.

    Are they 19" RS4's on that S3?

    The footrest area is bigger on LHD cars so the TT plate should fit with less modifying.
