    I considered these colours as well.
    I thought,of the two,Dolphin looked 'classier'.

    Then I chose Akoya silver !

    I was in the same boat as you. Went for the Lava Grey in the end. Would attach a pic but not sure how to?

    Discussing colors is so hard, you always end up p*ssing someone off. So here I go:

    Lava Grey:
    Not grey at all, it's brown!

    Dolphin Grey:
    Can't possibly find a more dull color than that (maybe RAF grey?).

    Akoya Silver:
    Where's The Silver??? It's lavander, or lilac!

    Red:
    Don't red german cars make you cringe???

    Mauritius Blue:
    Different, interesting, nice with a light grey interior, but maybe a little "toyish"...

    Brilliant Black:
    Nice, classy, but it's all surface, no depth...

    Silver:
    Nice, classy, and by far the easiest to keep dirty.

    Forget green and white.


    See, in the end you have to go for what appeals to you and not listen to blabbermouths like me /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif. Ya gotta make your mind up and be ready for others to question your judgement /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif.

    You'd be amazed how many people I've met who cannot even see the merest hint of lilac in it at all.
    Weird.It's lilac as lilac can be.

    Nope your wrong, your thinking of the pearl effect paints, they have no depth /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    But black is definately the classy colour

    I must say I think the new A3 looks good in Red, especially if it's a S-line.

    Nicks3 - I have an A3 3-door SE in silver. If you want to see some pictures go the GALLERY and look for my name in the Personal Galleries

  36. Nelius - ssshhhh

    Gonna be too many Ebony Black. When mine arrives in (hopefully) a couple of weeks I want other Sportback drivers to be thinking "/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/swear.gif, I should have gone with Ebony Black rather than this girly lilac colour"

    Check out the Sportback accessories brochure for these pics too. The wheels are 7.5 x 17 Calera wheels at a snip of £220 each. 18s available too at £250.
