    Just wondering how many members have actually taken the plunge and bought one, if so please complete the poll shown above.

    Shall we take bets on the most popular colour?

    Regards, John.

    I think Moro is likely to be a rare colour as they have stopped it so quickly.

    Mines Dolphin- but no one else should buy one in this colour, its slower.

    Personally I dont think the selection of colours for the S3 are very good take out
    Black bitch to keep clean but good if kept clean/silver to many silver cars about/yellow need to be brave for this one/orange even braver/white looks nice again if clean,sprint blues the best of whats left unless you want to pay for Audi exclusive
    Just my personal opinion and thats why Im going sprint blue

    id ahve dolphin over silver any day! - but only of forced to! if it were my choice prob sprint or solar - just cos they S3 only, daft to have it in any other colour in my opinion - its a special car with special colours so you gotta have them to make it stand out or it doesnt look different enough

    To the 2 owners (so far) who choose an exclusive colour, what did you choose and could you post some pictures please?

    I can find imperators quartz grey car, but not the other one.

    It is interesting, as I peruse the 8P site, that it seems indeed Sprint is very common, not that that is a bad thing. But in Australia I think this would NOT be the case. There seems to be a significant number in Black and some in Silver. It would be an interesting excercise to have a survey of OS S3 followers!


    GO THE BLACK!

    What about Banana yellow, what a winner that is! don't mean to offend those who have one but resale would be marginal!

    Misano Red.

    Available as an option on the S-line A3, but considered "exclusive" for the S3, what on earth was audi thinking? :motz:

    At times it's like brilliant red, but I just love the hint of orange glow, especially when parked under a lampost at night.

    Hard to capture the accurate color on pictures though.

    I went for Silver, not for any special reason apart from the fact that I wanted a new car, but couldnt be bothered to wait for a factory order and it was what the dealer had in stock.

    I think if i'd been specifying a new order I would have gone for either white,silver or dolphin gray.

    I ordered silver... My second choice was white. Kinda glad i didn't order the white because it's becoming way to popular.

    I have a Sprint Blue on order, as I love the colour :icon_thumright: and thinks that it makes the car stand out as something special. The orange and yellow are a bit too 'vibrant' for my liking, and I'm replacing a Brilliant Red A3, so didn't want to go that route. Second choice was probably silver, followed by Phantom Black.

    Was just about to ask why Misano Red wasn't included in the poll. Didn't realise it wasn't available on the S3.

    Here it is on an S-Line without Photoshop....
