    Some of you know I had a facelift sapphire black S3 last year which ended up being traded in for a TTRS...long story short we now have an RS3 but I miss having my own car that I can drive and detail to my hearts content. So I've been looking around for the right one which appeared to be over the new year an Ibis White hatchback, however several issues with the Audi dealership was kinda telling me it wasnt meant to be so we pulled out.

    Yesterday we came across this little beauty:

    Looks awesome, however i dont think i could live with the colour on a daily basis, must be getting old. Also it would attract do much unwanted attention in my neck of the woods! lol

    Are you allowed to have an RS3 and an SB S3? Looks smashing though, still almost regret not having the balls to go for Solar.

    I've driven both dsg and manual audi's (not a RS3 tho) and preferred the manual tbh , i like to choose what gear I'm going into not a computer , not that there is anything wrong with a dsg box its a very good gearbox one of the best i think just not my cuppa

    S5 , awesome V8 soundtrack with a louder exhaust my mates one sounds epic esp when the exhausts have warmed up , but it depends on what your after really what type of car hatchback/coupe/convertable the world is your oyster as they say lol , me personally i would get the solar S3 and get some black details on it :wub:

    I dont think orange looks better on any other audi in the whole range,maybe the tt rs
    But i think a red black scheme on a tt looks the best imo,on the list for the mrs next

    In my very humble opinion, I think there's something not quite right with the 5 door in Solar. I love the colour and have an Imola Yellow 3 door S3 myself, so not adverse to a bit of brightness, but think it's better suited to the 3 door. Odd really, because Imola RS4 Avants (the original shape) look the nuts!

    Audi S4 Black Edition in all black or ibis white but from those by far the best colour is the Red (not sure which red) & if not that why not take a chance on the s5 :p Something bigger with a 4.2l v8 < Cant fault the sound of a huge v8

    I think I poorly worded my post - I love the Solar colour but what I meant was I don't think it suits the Sportback (I've only seen it on 3 doors before) as well as the 3 door. In the same way, I think an Imola sportback would look slightly odd but on the 3 door it looks great.

    lol must just be me!! I wanted Solar or Imola when I was looking and couldn't find a Solar one so Imola won the day. No regrets, especially with the black optics on it. Who on earth specs Solar or Imola with a chrome grill from new??

    if your getting the avant Mullerz, you have to get it ibis white! with the black panoramic roof, with the black grill & a set of nice black rims!! The avants look out of place in different colours unless you have the previous RS in the blue

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    And if your sick of the white (because everyone has it) with better rims (oem blacked out) Go for a black on black

    i know exactly what Mullerz means- used to hate estates, but since having an a3 sportback my perception has changed

    & @Mullers

    [​IMG]
    This colours? i think looks nice but that coulour with the blacked out look does it for me! - black grill, & rims & mirrors- someone has a gorgeous a3 in this colour on here with bbs rims

    All SB owners are winners...sb styling rules
    Never seen that colour.good find.but i think thats sprint i was looking at sky blue its more lighter....
    defo needs more black then we could compare properly
    okaya is nice too and not as common as ibis,its a good colour as it goes with many other colours as n8 has shown
    Still like red tho but leave that for the tt
