    Im about to order my A3.
    A3 SB 1.4 COD
    Led lights
    panoramic sunroof
    black design package
    s-line exterior
    Leather/alcantara
    sportseats
    Rear parking sensors
    18" rotors

    Im thinking about going exclusive for Imola yellow. Is it to bold? I now its gonna be harder to sell and so.

    Anyone seen a A3 8V in yellow, or any other cool color.
    IMO i think the standard colors are a bit boring.

    Any other advice for exclusive color?

    I always used to want a yellow A3/S3 but unless your planning on keeping it forever its a big expense. If money is not really a concern then go for it. I'd get some black alloys though if it was me, not so sure about yellow on silver. Looking at your spec, i was told you couldn't order the rotor wheels anymore, would've quite liked them :(

    I know its gonna be an big expense. But on the other hand i get a great discount on the car.

    Yes you can get the rotors . Im working as a Audi salesmen myself, and I ordered one yesterday with rotors.

    I'm sorry but that is just hideous, who in their right mind would pay for an exclusive price and have it resembling a colour close to custard when there are plenty of far nicer colours to choose from exclusive swatch. Just my thoughts but it's your money at the end of the day.

    The only exclusive colour I would consider spending mega exclusive money on is sepang blue.

    It looks amazing and will not affect future re-sale.

    Everyone have different tast aparently :)I love the yellow, well its not the most economic and practical color. But in a world with so many greyish Audi colors it stands out.If Im going standard color I think shiraz red would be the color for me. But to pay an extra £1000 for an exclusive paint is IMO not that expensive. :)

    The way I see it when you buy a new car you spec it the way you want it, it's you're dream, you don't spec what you think the next owner might want! Go for it :D when it comes to selling it may take a little longer but you may get a premium for it because it's yellow and there isn't many about ;)

    Drive the dream :D

    I like the 'turquoise ?' colour that's cool, would get you noticed.Not all the Exclusive colour are to my taste, but that's the point, its great to see a car that is a bit different now and again.It would be nice to have a slightly unique colour as chances are you probably won't see anther one the same if you go for it.If my budget had allowed a sepang blue or spirt blue would have been really tempting, but got to say Misano red certainly stands out.

    Yep, £44K for an S3 is a complete joke. Even for an RS3 is cutting it fine.
