    Looks great. Did you go for a factory NAV? Could you do me a quick favour? Just wondering if you got a 2009 map disc and what firmware your RNSe is running. Ta!! ;)

    Yeah jealousy, lol & RS4 forum is boring, its all happening on the 8P train baby, lol, only kidding, but I love the RS4 avant, it has such nice lines, reminds me of my B6 S4 avant but better, but interior is kinda dated really.

    I love my RS4, and the only reason would be financial given whats happening everywhere atm.

    Its a nice place to be I suppose, downgrading to an S3 :) we shall see what the new year brings...

    I deffo want it specd up well and in a individual colour that will look cool but not lose value on resale, just not sure what yet :)

    N8KOW - it will look grey next to an Ibis in poor light, but when the sun hits Suzuka it looks amazing!
    Consider it a Pearl white - it's a really nice colour having had a chance to Look over Wes's and Seeing an RS6 at ADI.

    Klauster - I hear exactly what you're saying mate.
    This is the Lambo Blue I mean 0- the thread has the paint codes and everything!

    Im with Norwich on this one, not a big fan of the colour. Having said that, it does come alive in the sunshine. Trouble is i'd like my car to look sweet regardless of whether the sun is shining :p

    That RS6 at ADI looked awesome, then again a car that imposing could carry off most colours, not sure about the S3 though.

    Bet your glad the wait is over Alex :)

    Good choice, however you could have bought mine with Buckets, low mileage & warranty.
