    I have the Q5 in Daytona Grey and it's a smart colour, the A3 is Scuba Blue, first car to be ordered and delivered in Aberdeen Audi in this colour
    Both full S-Line spec.

    I thought this was only for *owners* of an 8V, but seen as it's too late for me to change my order now (being built next week) and everyone else seems to be jumping in, I've put mine on. (Yet another Daytona)

    What a strange restriction in the first post - only just noticed that! Why would it only be for owners?

    Don't think he ment it like that maybe was so people who didn't own one or ordered one, didn't just vote for their favourite colour or something!

    Pretty much, I was just too lazy to come up with an elegant way of saying you've either got your 8V A3 or it's on order but you're not changing your mind about the colour :).

    The shiraz red is almost as exclusive with only 3 of us (mine is on order)... Question is whose gone for the exclusive colour (I note one person has), and what did they order?

    Blimey 44 Daytona's and counting, that is high.

    I'm currently choosing options for a possible A3 Sportback TDI Quattro and Daytona is my favourite colour, and i have had it for the past 20 months on my A1 Black edition, and then it was a rare colour. A colour that never seems to disappoint in any weather condition, the flex in the paint just pops on sunny days.

    Having said that, there are 3 Daytona A3's at my stealers (and about 4 A4's also), and just passed another one going home (and a white one).

    Maybe black, or silver like my old A3 Sportback.

    I'll have a count up on the German Auto trader and see what is popular.

    Hey guys. I test drive an A3 last week in scuba blue but I'm actually wanting the S3. Can you tell me how the scuba and estoril colours differ?

    Hi there. Another Misano Red A3 S-Line here. I think that this colour suits the style and projected image of the car well. Daytona is more mature and serious, and although it is also a very good colour as well, I feel that it would become another grey A3 on the road.

    Originally intending to order Daytona..wife didn't like it :-( Then the Brilliant Black as its a safe option..and cheap :) My kids told me they're fed up with me driving black cars...finally settled on Glacier White, everyone happy :) Until a knowledgeable forum member mentioned this one!!! Now what to do?? IMG_0167.jpg

    Misano Red, it was the only colour available on display. Nothing like a boy racer colour for this lad of 67 years!!! Only one advantage, not many of us on the road, most appear to go for Daytona Grey, colour I would have chosen so not to attract too much attention to myself!!

    Surprising how uncommon Phantom Black is; means I get to be conservative and unusual at the same time! :)
