    just wondering if anyone knows how many of which color S3's where produced for the GB market?

    Would be cool to know which is the rarest, no prizes for guessing the most common ;)

    Rarest is probably Crystal Blue, Merlin Purple is also rare.

    Nah, I'd say rarest would be one of three launch colours which were only available for a very short period:

    I've never seen or heard of a factory finish one in:
    Cassablanca White (top row far right)
    Ochre (second row far right)
    Mocha Brown (third row second from right)

    Funny how colours come in and go out again - Mocha seems to be a current VW colour for the Passat and obviously white has been the new silver for a while.

    It's either a respray as white wasn't an option for a 2000 car or it was custom ordered under Audi Select at vast cost.
