    I have been told that Edinburgh Audi have a new imola yellow S3 saloon in the Showroom, which is part of the Audi exclusive paint range

    When I was told about it, I thought yuck, but TBH I quite like it, but not at the cost of the Audi exclusive paint I'm afraid

    Exactly what I'm ordering soon, I hope. Although Tunbridge Wells have an orange one available soon, I need to take a look at it!

    Love it, that would hav been my number one choice if it hadn't been an Audi Exclusive colour .. not sure about the wheels on that car mind you o_O

    Solar orange also would have figured highly, as would racing blue mica ..

    I'm not usually a fan of bright colours but I do like it in yellow. Think if your coupled it with the black styling pack it would look killer.

    I think it looks stunning in imola yellow BUT at £2025.00 for the paint? Not a chance I'm afraid! :keule:

    I've owned a Imola yellow S3 and went to look at a S1 in Vegas yellow it looks awesome in photos but in real life just a bit flat and not all that.

    I've paid it and although not got the car yet I'd definitely order custom paint again.

    Love it, but it's such a shame the saloon is missing the front bumper side vents, ruins it for me.

    Yep, looks different on each photo / car - most colours are hard to photograph naturally.

    I don't normally like yellow cars but it does seem to suit the saloon, I'm going for a nosey at Aberdeen Audi to see if it's there.

    The saloon in the first couple of pics is Vegas Yellow (which looks awesome)...much better than Imola Yellow. Think I might have just found my next colour...

    The difference between the two colours is easy to see at 1:05 in Pulp84's vid.

    prefer the Emola yellow personally.. still looks nice though. I think the S3 saloon is one of those cars that you can pretty much get with most colours and it will still look pretty damn good. In my opinion, the brighter the better so it doesnt lose it's lines!

    I've NEVER considered a red car in my entire life.. and guess who's waiting on a Misano Red? :)

    Or could also be Speed Yellow...

    There's a Solar Orange S3 Saloon on mobile.de at the moment for anyone interested in seeing the combo.

    Looks nice in the solar orange I must admit :cool:

    I had a look on that site last night keyser and couldn't find those photo's. Thanks for sharing buddy :thumbs up:

    & yes the chrome pack would suit it better IMHO

    whats people`s opinion on the wing 5 spoke wheels that are on the orange s3 as options 19", compared to the standard twin 5 spoke in 19"?

    Each to their own but I prefer the 5 arm wing design than the standard s3 alloys, looks more subtle and goes well with neutral colours. (Got it on order with Sepang blue)
    Although it doesn't go well with that orange car, having an orange car shouts "look at me!" where as the 5 arm wing design doesn't say that.

    The orange s3 would of been better off with the standard s3 alloy.
