I can't get over how OEM they look for a fraction of the cost.

The identical process is followed as if they were repairing an OEM diamond cut wheel, paint, cut the face on a lathe and then lacquer.

Just a floret silver RS3 saloon I saw on insta.


Finally I'm ready to order the RS3 and they stopped production...... Do you guys think I should go for red brakes or leave them as black brakes? I'll for sure be going floret silver, pretty sure I'll get black pack and pan roof. If I end up being cheap I could leave it stock brakes and no black pack.

With pan roof and privacy glass, I can definitely see the black and silver look. The only thing is that the red brakes stand out more. Like this for example:

Or this but it doesn't have privacy glass.


For comparison, here's one with black brakes.

Here's one with no black pack.

New owner checking in :) Amazing car so far. Color looks great, was a bit scared as I couldn't see it in person before ordering, it's really cool tho.

I like that you took two pictures were you’ll spend a lot of time at!!

Looks great, although we need more :sign pics:

Yeah unfortunately though the books have closed. I've been talking to some dealers who say it'll open again next year but it could take 12 months to get your order. I have 8-9 months until my current PCP ends so not looking like I'll be able to get a new one unless I extend this. They do have new unregistered cars but none are Floret Silver. Could end up with Glacier White which wouldn't be too bad or get another Mythos Black.

Am now into four weeks of ownership and lovin’ it! Promised I’d post a pic when I got a chance but today is the first time I’ve been able to spend some quality time on the polishing front so here she is. Good old Ara Blue - can’t beat it for looking nice in cloudy weather .....

I really think EVERY RS3 should have the black or Alu pack - without they just look like a standard A3.

I think this combo is rather unique because it doesn’t look like every other RS3 with the standard options and it’s definitely different enough to an a3/s3. Understated but smart. Classic sleeper where all the other drivers will see is the 2 big pipes disappearing in the distance. :thumbs up:

Exactly why I like it ..... they would see black pipes disappearing into the distance too

I suspect this is one of the last times the Mica Pup will pop in the sunlight this year, so here is a cosy garage photo with the nose in the sun :D

Racing Blue is made for sunny days! Wow. Just a shame the camera doesn’t pick up the flake :(

Nope, san marino blue (BMW M3 CS colour).

Oh cool! If I had realised when I ordered that you could spec a BMW colour, that is what I would have chosen.

I like your colour, too.

Actually, I am not a huge fan of blue. But it fits the RS3 really good.

Thank you! Racing Blue Mica and SM Blue are very very similar, I think Racing Blue has a little bit more purple in the colour.

I’m picky with blue’s too, there are some horrible ones out there.

These two blues are amazing:hearteyes:

I tend to like the darker blues as opposed to lighter tones. I love our Ara Blue, but it can be a touch to light in direct sunlight.

Man it's annoying that I might just end up with an Ara Blue RS3 Saloon because its the best value used one available.

Yes I agree on Ara Blue. Sometimes I look at it and kind of wish I had gone that route but others it is just too sparkly.
