    If you do a lot of driving in the dark on unlit roads then I'd say go for it, I haven't used them a massive amount (it was just an option I fancied having) but when I have, they're good at what they do.

    What's the spec of your car as it stands just now
    Best options if you want sell on are
    Technology package, bang&Olufsen, pano-roof, metallic paint, and most of all S-tronic

    Now if you have all of the above go for the matrix candles, if not consider the above firstly

    I don't have them on mine, although I was planning on specc'ing on a scratch build.....had a very similar system on my last car (Mercedes CLS) and it was very, very good. However, having spent 2 months in my S3, with a variety of driving, I do not really feel I am missing out too much (once I remembered that I had to do the whole full beam on/off thing myself again!)......

    TL;DR Great setup, if you can fit in budget then sure, but perhaps not at the expense of other choice options....

    As it stands, Tech pack, Comfort pack inc B&O, Pan roof and folding mirrors In Tango Red metallic. I've opted for the 2.0tdi 150 with a manual shift, If i was getting the S3 I'd go for the S-tronic but I don't think the diesel warrant's the extra cost.

    I'm not 100% if the Tango is worth the extra £550 over the Ibis though... Myself and the partner spent the day going round dealerships comparing the colours but I'm leaning towards the Tango as I think it compliments the Sportback very well.

    Matrix candles is a no brainer then,. Matt aluminium roof rails they will set off the Tango red nicely

    Absolutely... the roof rails finish off the sportback very nicely.. I make full use of mine and they certianly compliment Misano red so sure Tango would also work well!

    I have them on my S3 and they are amazing. I live in a rural area in the southeast and I drive on unlit country lanes and it’s like driving in daylight. I also use the Motorways and they work great on them as well . That said I also have the B&O sound system and it’s very good.

    I have them, and think they are excellent - my favourite thing about the car.
