    I have a week 20 build for my S3 Sportback (Australia) Sepang Blue with Black Styling kit plus roof rails, Performance Pack, Magnetic Ride, privacy glass, etc.


    Thoughts on the black styling kit on the blue? I have seen it on an RS6 looks good?

    I have 2 weeks to decide?

    It does look good to be honest, but then again silver on blue looks great too. Which alloys are you going for?

    Week 20 is next week, and as I understand it from reading other threads on ASN, orders are locked 4 weeks prior to the build week.

    My build week is 22, meaning my order is also now locked.

    Sorry you are right just looked again I must be 24 or 25 as car not due in Aus until late August. Sepang blue could not be ordered until June in Australia anyway. Estoril was the only blue on launch.

    Its that whole debate about personal choice again.

    Personally I prefer the silver / chrome contrast with the blue (which I why I've ordered it :) )


    Hang on... Yes you order the black pack then we can do a contrast when it arrives and we can put up pics showing both....:laugh:

    I actually prefer the black grill though rather than the standard one. It's a tricky one the good thing is in Aus I think we can have a darker tint than in the UK so my car should look pretty good (expat living in Aus).

    I can't stand the chrome on any S3, no matter what colour it is. Just cheapens the look of the car IMO. Reminds me of a Ford Cortina! Black styling pack should be standard on all S3's!

    My friend has just picked up his S3 hatch in amalfi white with the black styling pack and it looks fantastic. I'm due to pick up my S3 saloon in phantom black in a few weeks with the chrome. I think the chrome makes the car look more executive in black.

    Beauty!

    I went with black pack then removed it, all depends on what you want. I find it is more aggressive with black.

    There's a new S3 near me identical to what I have ordered and looks really nice with chrome. The way he keeps driving it though, constantly footing it and this is the 3rd time I seen him now, if he doesn't calm down he's going to end up doing something stupid.

    Sorry to bump.

    But this makes me a million times happier now seeing those awesome pics. Ive ordered an s3 3door in Sepang blue with the black styling.

    Looks more discreet sitting on the street imo

    Perfect combo apart from daytona and BP, nevertheless, stunning. Nose is outlined so well with the lighter blue that is becoming more and more popular and less and less exclusive like estoril ;-)
