Can I ask, just a rough cost, how much a wrap like this costs in the UK? I got a quote of 1,800 euro to put a protective self healing film on the front sections of my 3.

@Rob2k68 have you got the Cat Red RS3 yet?

It wasn’t meant to be mate I found out that the build week was 10/07/17 so the car had been built 16 months before registering it which just set alarm bells ringing

Wow! That is scary Probably best to walk away.

Must admit I always check that kind of thing. Got my Q5 end March, and was built in Jan. Likewise my wife’s JCW that we got in May was built in Feb.

It will happen

Out of interest where had it been stored for all that time? How did you find out build date too?

This looks great in the pics but something about Cat Red in the flesh that makes it look really flat, I think maybe the ones I've seen haven't been kept 100% clean but the colour just doesn't seem to pop like Misano red does.
Looks light orange in sunlight imho.

I’ve no idea mate - could possibly been having some rework done - either way I couldn’t get any positives from it.

I asked a friendly dealer for the PR spec sheet showing every option and build week.

Was this car at Halesowen Audi by chance? If yes I declined my interest today was so close to closing a deal until I found out the order books open week 4 2019, am holding off and speccing exactly what I want.

Aren't you worried about how the exhaust sound will be like after WLTP? I'm going to do the PCW mod anyway but not sure how the filter would effect that.

They should have offered Navarra Blue on the RS3. It looks great on the RS5.

It was really poor from Audi in general

Catalunya red but no Misano red despite some of the early advertisements showing it in MR, they even had a lovely viper green saloon in some of the early promotions but come sell time....NOTHING, instead they offer up a wishy washy blue colour (In my opinion the worst blue Audi currently do) and that's it. Some of the standard car ranges had better colour offerings.

Yeah I was surprised that the S3 has more colour choices. It doesn't have Nardo Grey but has Nano Grey which is similar, also Vegas Yellow, Navarra Blue and Tango Red instead of Catalunya Red (Not sure if that's a good thing, also the 2 solid paints Brilliant Black and Ibis White).

The RS5 gets Sonoma Green, Misano Red and Navarra Blue but loses Panther Black and Ara Blue. The new A1 has got some new colours. Tioman Green, Firmament Blue, Manhattan Grey and Python Yellow (and you can get a black roof now too).

I'm more of a black pack Navarra Blue fan but both look good. Compare them on the RS5 since I think yours is the only RS3 I've seen in that colour.

Did you change the alloys on that? Looks quite similar to one I'm looking at. Is it panther black?

Yes I changed the alloys but don’t know if it’s panther black, the car is mythos black, tbh I can’t tell

Good choice btw
Shine your phone torch on the paint up close. If it has a green fleck it will be Mythos. If it has a purple like fleck it'll be Panther.
