Can anyone tell me what colour my car is please as i cant seem to find it anywhere
If its factory paint there will be a paint code on a sticker in your spare wheel well, although I haven't seen that colour before? So might not be original. It looks like it could be solar orange (an 8P colour) Nice looking car bud!
that colour is stunning!!! dont think its standard 8l like above possibly 8p
i would have to agree. its orange
hi thanks its the standard its definalty the standard colour as i rember then car when it was brand new i think it is the same as the TT orange. It is lighter than solar orange
Is that a UK spec vehicle? I don't recognise the plates...RHD though. Where are you from?
yeah it is a uk car... nah i just pushed the mirror in while it was parked outside the house... I live in the Isle of Man we have MN or Man in all our Redg's
You've got one special car there mate!
Think I may have see it for sale a couple of years ago, always thought it has to be a respray. But obv not.
Does anyone have this coloyr listed in their brochures?
Wow, I think thats a rare Papaya Orange S3 you got there mate, nice!
What colour is the interior?
Thanks i havent seen another one this colour before
It has Dark Grey full leather. the seats are electric adjustable and heated is this standard?
They are ultra rare my friend, only ever seen two previous 8L S3's this colour.
Papaya is an Audi exclusive special order paint and the ones I remember seeing also had the dark grey interior as well. Do you have any pics?
All S3 Recaros are electric adjustable but heated seats were an option.
Pics of your interior would be great?
Nice colour - as others have said, will have been ordered as an Audi Exclusive colour.
Only standard colour like that I was aware of was the launch colour Ochre metallic (second down on the right), but that was only available for 6 months and yours is a facelift so wasn't available from the brochure when yours was built.
its onnvi yellow from a seat lcr, with less white paint added, i hade my lcr painted last year it came out this collour, the person who sprayed added more white paint to it, to get it more yellow, the paint come coded to my lcr but was orange/yellow when tested, so we added more white and it come out perfect, i think ur s3 has bin repainted, and the dint lighten the colour.
This is the only one i have
Thanks good to know it deffo aint metalic thats for sure
Its standard paint its still got all the paint code stickers etc. I doubt anyone would bare shell repaint a brand new car the wrong colour
If its got the paint code stickers then post em up! I'm sure somebody will know what it is
Where is the paint code ?
from this I thought you had already found it?
There should be a sticker in your spare wheel well mate
I'm pretty sure there's a sticker in the wheel well under the boot carpet, or it's on the spec sticker on the inside cover of the service manual. I have a 2002 brochure for my S3 and the colour is not in there. But you can specify any Audi colour in the range called "Audi Exclusive" and they'll paint your car in it.
There is stickers everywhere i was just checking ill post it up in a bit
brand new car???? its a 8l,, stickers are easy to get hold off.
I don't think you understand what he's saying mate,
I think this car is a bit special also the interior looks awesome!

Love the colour! I was just thinking the other day that an 8L would look good in orange when I saw a Solar Orange 8P go by. Fantastic. Never seen that colour interior either. Wow, look after her!
Thanks i found it ...yeah it is an Exclusive
The car has been here since new so i know it has always been this colour
yes this is the paint code so it is Papaya.. is there anymore this colour on here?
Thanks thats handy
Thanks i will do spend all day saturday polising her
Never saw this colour in 8L
Nice external colour, but if I'm honest I'm not a big fan of the interior, especially the steering wheel. Good to see a rare combo though.
Special order Papaya Orange. Nice colour.
Oh my, that is stunning!! I didn't even know this colour existed on the 8l's. Looks amazing mate. Very special.
Very rare and very nice
what is it about the interior that looks awesome, isn't it standard?
+1 colour looking good.
How’s this 6 year post got dug up?
The leather, steering wheel and dash, door inserts are all a light grey which was not standard colour hence why the airbag is a different colour
I revived it just for the sake of it whilst looking for a poll of the best colour for an 8p lol
That’s easy best colour for an 8p is the blue with the chrome mirrors ha
Thats like the old nogaro blue. No good if you want to go under the radar at times. I like the grey with chrome mirrors!
I like solar orange for the 8P, although I'm not a big fan of the 8P. I prefer the 8V and I like Sepang Blue on that one. Obviously the best colour is noggy though ;-)
Black is best but I’m biased haha
LY2B PAPAYA ORANGE is that colour
