    I'm not usually a fan of red, but in the s3 it looks great showing the lines more I feel and like contrasting interior like the silver/ white leather (with heated seats) or the half leather and white alcantara
    But this seems rare!

    Keep saving and keep looking :)

    I love the black/silver interior from the Skoda octavia, not sure of it fits into the s3, think it may do though. I am quite close to buying a set of black leather s3 recaro's at the moment :D

    I have a black S3 and would love the interior from the imolla S3 8L, yellow alcantara!

    If it's a factory order tomorrow, I'd get a Merlin Purple with Silver heated leather.

    Yes! Purple is the winner but silver leather can do one. Leather in general can do one but none of the alcantara options suit purple so i vote rip it out and fit some Recaro Pole Positions (Also found in the TT240 as an option)

    Noggy with the blue alcantara/black half leather interior (but I'm biased), however the imola yellow with yellow alcantara/black half leather is also awesome.

    From a more subtle perspective it's misano red with the silver leather.

    Am I the only person that thinks leather seats are gash. I'd pay extra to have my cloth facelift A3 (Recaro-esque-without-the Recaro-badge) seats stuffed in an S3.

    Or I'd happily add a KO4 to my A3 and not drag around the mock 4wd system :)

    Back to the original question: S3 - Grey paint with black. Perfect combo. Any coloured seats look horrendous.

    Gonna be a little biased here, but... Absolute red with all black leather.
    I just don't really like any of the half and half options, I much prefer an all black interior.
    Bet they're not as cold first thing in winter though. Or sticky in summer.
    Hmmm...

    Yes, not too common, and even A3's come in that colour too. It looks awesome all polished up in the right light!

    Just Googled 'Merlin purple s3' and found an old ad on here for one.
    YES. That colour is awesome.

    Judder, cloth Recaro's was a no cost option on S3's, the leather Recaro's we're a standard part of owning an S3! I've only ever seen one S3 with cloth Recaro's, kinds of devalues the car ticking that box!

    That purple looks ace

    Yellow exterior seems to work very well with the lines of the car and the matching half leather and yellow to add is brilliant, but I wouldn't own one lol

    Cant devalue it anymore Jo.. Already worth peanuts lol.

    Rather have cloth than leather anyday. You need so much more support from leather seats over cloth and the Recaros offer bugger all as it is.

    Theres no shoulder support either. Guy at work as a 1.2 3 pot Fabia and the seats have bigger bolsters and much better support than my recaros! lol

    Silver with silver/black alcantara interior all day long :)

    [​IMG]

    ...although while silver exterior is easy to keep looking clean, the silver alcantara is more of a challange... no slipping no matter what size your ass in these babies..

    Your car amazes me Paul, 12 years old, looking factory fresh and running enough power to just about anything that appears in the rear view mirror to shame.

    It's gotta be Dolphin grey on black leather for me... I think the boldness of Dolphin grey compliments the curves of the S3 perfectly and the black leather keeps it nice and understated on the inside to give an overall discrete and sophisticated look that still has real road presence...
    Merlin purple certainly isn't far behind tho!

    That would be my ultimate.

    However, I have the next best thing. Noggy & black all round.

    Silver car with full black interior is my fav, but I didnt have much choice as there are only 4 S3's in Dubai. I had to settle with the below option. I can live with the yellow paint but the yellow interior is WAY to much for me to handle. Slowly been removing the yellow bits from the interior.

    Totally agree voorhees

    Now if only there was just someone out there with a decent blue alcantara interior they wouldn't mind swapping with mine to finish of my perfect car colour/interior combo :whistle2:
