    im picking up my new A3 saloon sline on Wednesday. suddenly I’m having regrets on the colour, I’ve chosen Nano grey, after seeing one pass by me a while ago I instantly loved it, reading people’s comments on here it doesn’t seem that popular and there seems to be issues with stone chips being very noticeable, also in certain light conditions in various pictures I’ve seen online it doesn’t look how I remember seeing it. Your thoughts please?

    Trust me you won’t regret it when you pick it up! I’ve a nano grey A3 sportback and it’s not popular which is why it’s good to be unique and i’ve not noticed any stone chips whatsoever with mine. Also colour depends on the light personally i think it looks better in darker environments

    Whenever I see a Nano I love it, although I love most of the greys Audi do. However Nano kinda looks like Nardo, just a bit darker which is really nice imo.

    I've not decided yet... I really liked it the first time, but maybe it was because it was the first time lol.

    I think most of the time I see it though, not a huge fan.. Prefer Daytona or Nardo

    Well, I am one that neither Nardo or Nano inspires any love and kisses for. Daytona is OK

    I was a bit in 2 minds after ordering mine having never seen an A3 in that colour. In the end I'm pleased with the choice I made. As it's a bit marmite, I haven't seen too many others like mine. The colour is really effected by the ambient light which is one of the things I like the most about Nano

    Its a year old and so far no stone chips, why they insist in using white undercoat, something that really makes a chip stand out is beyond me.

    I was never really a fan of the saloon but it appears to be growing on me, that's a real peach of a motor

    Not a fan of greys but I do like that especially when it’s not in direct sunlight, front half in the first pic.

    I think colour is so based on peoples opinion that you will never please everyone. I like it but I think its a statement and I would be worried I would get board of it after a while which wouldn't happen with a generic metallic black/white/grey. If you are thinking about re-sale a dealer told me the top best selling colours for re-sale are: Mythos black / Glacia White and Deytona Grey (in no particular order). However, who buys a car for re-sale?! Buy a car because you like it, and if you do then your on to a winner mate ;) There will be haters and lover no matter that you choose.

    To be honest the current range of standard Audi paint colours are a bit bland/dull well most of them except Ara and Navarra they've delete Misano Red Sepang Blue, 2 of the best paints they've ever produced
    Long standing Daytona grey is the best of the grey paints, not a fan of Nano but it looks OK when it's well looked after and l can't stand Nardo full stop, l see some more interesting bolder colours coming to light in the new cars A1/Q3/Q8 so hopefully they'll filter through the all new A3 next year
    Ps l do think some more colours should be unique to certain cars in the model line ups like sepang and Daytona used to be unique to the S3

    Couldn't agree more Jassy, like the MK4 and MK5 R32 had Deep Blue Pearl specific to them.

    I was in a real dilemma...Nano or Daytona. In the end I opted for Daytona on a Black Edition at the last minute....I'm still trying to convince myself it was the right choice but every time fine I see Nano I have a real pang of regret. I know i would do the same if i had chosen Nano over Daytona lol.... Enjoy your car, its stunning!

    What a colour DBP is :yes:. That and the raspy 6 cylinder engine is what made us get a mkV back in the day. The wife still goes on about that car being her favourite.

    Nano is really nice, but its main problem is that Daytona exists IMO. :blush:

    I like Daytona but it’s very similar to all the other greys out there. Nano is perfection for me. Owned my s3 13 days and I’ve washed it 3 times. The detailing bug is back:yum:

    Really struggled to choose between Nano and Daytona Grey.. In the end up i went for Daytona.

    Nano is the nuts though!

    in the end, the only opinion that matters is yours, I like the colour, but not if I'm paying for it, actually I much prefer the Floret Silver to any of the greys.

    Agree with Jassyo06 about the Misano Red and Sepang Blue, the blue my absolute favourite.
