    The unfortunate thing for me is someone three streets away form me has a phantom black one so I see one pretty much every day! Mind it is black with black mirrors, debadged and privacy glass with silver centre grille which put me off buying a black one. Daytona is a great colour when clean but can look dull, Ibis I just couldn't live with and Misano is a marmite colour for me and again can look dull.. so as I was buying a new car but not off the order line the logical choice of what was available was Suzuka with black pack. If there had been a Mugello in stock and unregistered I would have had it but my Suzuka had all but two of the options I wanted and available in a week so it was a no brainer.

    Fair play to you with Cornflower; up there with my fave Audi blue colours, Mugello, Ming, Sprint along with Cherry Black and now Suzuka Grey.

    Thank you.

    I'm told there's only this one in Cornflower blue; it was a 'special order', not by me I might add. Fortunately, for me, the original customer decided he didn't want it and post delivery advertised on line: thank you, thank you, and thank you.... It was mine with delivery miles.

    Interestingly, 'Bagey' posted a photo of this car taken on its first day out, sans registration plates, in Newcastle-upon-Tyne (original suppliers were Audi Newcastle-upon-Tyne), and he thought it purple. I nearly fell of my chair when I saw his post; see: RS3 Discussion Thread: Post #713 dated 13th September 2011; and then Posts: #746, 751, etc.

    It really is an unusual (old VAG) colour that does change with differing light: we love it!

    Enjoy, we do...

    Mate, dont just jump to conclusion.
    that RS3 you saw could be a 1.6 16v, a 1.2TFSI, a 1.6TDI, a 2.0TDI, a 3.2 v6 or even a 1.9 TDI with a FULL replica or original body kit. dont feel too bad. i live in londonand in the last year have only seen about 4 or 5 on the streets. the thing is you have an RS which is a special car.

    I was going for a Racing Mica RS3 but Tonbridge Audi never followed up my enquiry and lost themselves a sale. Instead I went for an Audi approved phantom black with alu trim, registered July 2012 (bought Aug 2012) and only 1.5k miles that had already depreciated from the brand new price.

    Mine's Suzuka Grey, not white...... I'm sure you noticed, just thought I'd point it out..... Not paranoid, much.

    The optics pack as well as gloss black front grille and gloss black diffuser also colour codes door handles so no chrome strip (which I've never liked) and colour codes the rear spoiler in-fill to match the body work.

    I like the chrome in-fill on darker coloured cars, blacked out tinted rear windows and black roof rails (which will almost certainly never be used).

    To finish off the optics pack the twinpot exhaust is also black finish.

    For the record I actually think the chrome finish on the RS3 looks ace and I'd be careful about changing things to much, do a sh;te job of it and it'll look like a modded A3 on a budget.

    Saying all that I am tempted to gloss black my chrome wing mirrors and pump out a bit of drum + bass........... Ehhhh no:no:

    eagle eyes........ It's a black Audi Motorsport sticker, probably my 1st and only mod....... Ha ha mod what a laugh:laugh:
    oh yeah also replaced the Audi front/rear number surround with Audi Motorsport Inglostadt plates and pressed Aluminium plates.
    Might replace the Audi silver grille rings for gloss black and rear one's to gloss black.......

    I'd be a bit wary of early Red & White Cars (Registered May 2011) Reg Nos: OY11 H** Most of these were the Early Press Cars so values will probably be a bit less there were quite a few on the Audi site 6/12 Months ago but think there's just the 2 Red ones left now both advertised at just under £33K

    I think the modern engine is nearly bomb proof and you would probably still have a bit of warranty left but I don't think I would like to own a Car that had been driven as if it had been stolen from Day 1 (unless the price reflected this) Went to Millbrook for the launch of the RS4 couple of months back and most of the people driving wouldn't drive there own Cars like it (including me less than 1000 miles on the Clock) and they were using launch control every chance they got

    Hi Guys,

    This is my new trusty steed, i call her Lightning. I'm sure if you have one you don't need to have the name explained.

    I will take better pic's once the weather is better (and Warmer)!
