    Just been looking over the order form for the pre-specced S3 I've agreed to buy. The dealer told me it was white, so I took it for granted that it was Ibis because I didn't know there was more than 1 white available in the S3, the order form says Artic white, is this a mistake or is there more than one white for the S3.
    I've just checked the configurator for the new ones and there is only Ibis, I've searched the used cars and there is only Ibis, can someone put me straight.
    cheers

    Audi nottingham had an "Artic" white S3 in when I was looking, it was a more dull/grey colour and I think it was a special order.

    Arctic white is a dirty, dull white to the best of my knowledge. Change that spec at all costs because if you're expecting Ibis you WILL be disappointed!

    Apparently THIS is arctic white. Note it's not a pearcing white like Ibis. Just a bit dirty looking....

    I dont know.......i quite like it to be honest or maybe i just like what he has done to that sportback!! Looks pretty sweet to me!!

    To be fair that could just be a dirty ibis white and someone's tryin' to wind the **** outa the poor guy.......

    To be sure......definetly get the spec changed or even better get a Phantom black one haha

    :jester:

    Good luck with it either way mate. Hope you get the colour your after.
