Ok, so there is a long wait for everyone placing orders and as such it gives me more time to sort out my deposit and what spec I want to go with. Currently I am back to exclusive colour choices. The reason being that the RS model should be something special and exclusive and none of the standard colour choices or Nardo are doing it for me. I've seriously thought about Nogaro but then saw one sitting next to a Sepang (both A3 8V convertibles at dealer) and it just didn't look special enough. I have Sepang S3 8V now and I don't think I want to go the same again for the RS3. So this brings me to the question above. To be exclusive and special requires a colour choice that is not normal (in most cases) and that stands out - and draws attention to the car. Does this affect the value of the car? Not that I buy cars to make money off them by worrying about residuals, but it does make a difference when trading up after 3 years. At the minute I am very tempted by Glut/Solar Orange with black pack, pano roof and wheels. Brave choice? What do people think? (I am waiting for my dealer to get a Catalunya Red in so I can see that in person as its a strange one to get accurate picture of, so I might change my mind yet again. There's no rush though LOL).
