    cheers i thought so, am i right in saying that you cannot order a sport in Daytona grey? Without paying extra for the paint, as i cant see it as available on the brochure, seems like it is only optional on the S line..

    That's not Daytona trust me. It looks like Monsoon, and as you say Daytona is an S-Line only colour.

    For those of you struggling with the age old question: .... Black or White?!

    Maybe this will help....

    This is my Glacier White S-line on the left, and my friend's Phantom Black S-line on the right. Both on SE Suspension. He has just picked his up this afternoon, whereas I've had mine for 3 months.

    I know which I prefer - but then i'm biased aren't I ;)

    VOODOO, I like your answer, however mj has a very intimidating avatar, if he says it's the wrong answer, who are we to argue? Lol

    Indeed, you can each have a second attempt at picking the correct answer. See, I'm actually very generous ;)

    Actually I would have gone for black as my first choice, but I live on a dusty unmade road and keeping my previous dark grey & blue cars clean proved a nightmare. White hides the dust nicely :)

    I also had a good chance to compare the Audi sound system with the B&O earlier, I will start a separate thread with my opinion!

    I have seen some scuba blue pics posted by a3sportbackrob in thread 48hrs of ownership, post #9. It's around April time, not sure of the type of a3 sportback. Sorry, I don't know how to provide a link.

    Yeah it's Daytona. I think it's the perfect colour for the A3.

    Ordered my 3 door hatch in glacier white 2.0tdi yesterday ! So excited but not pleased with the delivery date being week 48 :( but I'm sure it will be worth it. Had the sd card based nav and privacy glass as extras with the s-line suspension.
    I'm currently driving a 2.0tdi 170 a3 8p sport back ATM so hope the power difference isn't major but I've read figures of it being up to speed with it. Have got the Audi sound system in my current car so hoping the standard system in the new one is as good.. Anyone got any info on whether you notice the difference between the 2? Am I going to notice a major difference?

    Thanks

    I've seen videos of the old 170 golf vs the new 150 A3 and the 0-60 was near as makes no difference identical
