Hi all

So my search of an A3 in the UK is finally on the way.

After looking on both auto trader and Audi approved cars I have managed to select a couple of potential cars which meet my specifications (low milage S-line with either B&O audio or Virtual cockpit). In all cases the colour is Daytona Grey. Since this is a special colour for the S Line I have never seen it in Malta. Seen some pics online but depending on the lighting the colour changes quite a lot. Can someone give me some information on how it looks and most importantly how easy is it to maintain?

On an other note would you choose B&O or Virtual cockpit?

I have a Saloon in Daytona. It's beautiful. It shines all the colours of the rainbow in sunlight. I've been told more than once that it's the shiniest car my colleagues have ever seen. It still looks good even with the eventual layer of dust on it. Having said that I give mine a quick detail every couple of days!!

Stock on the S3 in Oz, but I think they are an option on other places. Would have to be after market options for sure.

Couple of close ups of Daytona grey pearl. Pictures definitely don't do it justice .
I wanted this colour and ended up getting.the ex demonstrator because of the colour
As said never really looks dirty due to the colour and always shines

If it's rare in Malta, go for it as Daytona is a great colour and definitely won't show the dirt. My problem with it is that as it is exclusive to s-line trim in the U.K., nearly all s-lines I see are in Daytona!

How would one go about getting red brake calipers like those, they are awesome...!

Wouldn't pay Audi £300 or whatever for that.
I'm about to do my own and the wifes TT for a fraction of the cost.

Post results, if they look good I'll pop mine round :grinning:

Didn't of do my last two cars but did my A4 in red and added decals. Was quite happy with them.
Only thing about the S3 is the rear callipers are a sh***y shape.
I need to work around the S3 logo / panel on the fronts too.

Hi all. Just a small update. I managed to get hold of a 66 plate A3 S-line in August. The car looks stunning and the Daytona grey has received a number of thumbs up from relatives and friends. The car had only 2400 miles upon purchase and drove it all the way down to Malta over 4 days covering around 500 miles a day. On the way we drove to Ingolstad where we saw the Audi museum and bought some accessories as well.
