RS3 8Y exclusive paint choice help

Hi all you tasteful folk. I have placed a Vorsprung order with exclusive paint and currently have chosen Sebang Blue - on the basis my last RS3 was that colour and I liked it and now it is not a standard colour and I don't like any of the standard colours.
However... this seems to be missing an opportunity and shows little imagination given the scope of choice. I would appreciate people's thoughts on a great colour to choose when the world is my lobster (not red though). Thanks.

Lots of colours in this thread as a start :)

If you are looking for something special, would it be an option to order a standard colour and wrap it? This gives you a lot of choice and cost wise is probably no more expensive than ordering an exclusive colour.

I am assuming that exclusive paint might result in a longer lead time for your delivery (I could be wrong there...)

A decent wrap done properly is around £2,500-£4k.

Hi, good point though at a net cost of £2k v up to £4k for wrap I aim to make the right choice and stick with it (sorry about the wrap pun...). cheers

And if ordered today you’ll beat the December price increase which saves you more than the £2400 required.

Yes sorry, I have a wrap guy who sponsors our business so gives us mates rates, I think I'm a bit out of touch with current pricing :) Exclusive paint definitely seems the way forward if you're not in a rush for the car. Sepang blue is one of my all time favourite Audi colours

First post after many years in BMW M.

I too have a Vorsprung Sport back in Sepang Blue ordered. I was also thinking the same thing, if I'm going exclusive, why go for a standard Audi colour?

Info seems sparse on the subject but is it true you can spec ANY colour even from other manufacturers?

I quite like Porsche Gentian Blue...


...although I really like Racing Mica Blue.

My M4cp is Blue Hera Mica which is very rare.

Really?

I've got an estimated build date of June...

I'll try and find the thread.
When you say estimated build date, is that just something the dealer has given you as their best guess or is it an actual unconfirmed build week in the order system?

Arrow Grey was a standard colour on the A1 mate so really not an Exclusive paint
