      White's the safest colour.

      And can you open the poll? I want to suggest you buy a Fiat 500.

      White for sure. I have never really been a fan of German cars in Red.
      Oh and option the panoramic black roof thing.

      I personally think white cars are on the way out as a style. The residents of Dubai got whiff of how Wayne operates and had a mass sale of all white cars with dark wheels. This has led to Dubai's economy crumble into pieces.
      Nice one Wayne!! Now look what youve done.

      Yes, this is partly my concern too. Perhaps as a sign that white-is-alright movement has jumped the shark there was a snippet on the Geneva Motor Show TV channel proclaiming that white is the latest "it" colour. That's gotta be like the President saying the coach has the full support of the board.

      Every S3 I've seen has been either Black or White so I voted Red My mate has a red A3 Sportback and I think it looks quite good.
      *disclaimer* I invariably give the worst advice on the Tex

      Same.
      Even looks great with our GTI's BBS CKs fitted.

      I reckon white is better than red, but sprint blue looks good, as does Lenny's black one [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] Get it in orange if they have it?

    13. 03-09-2009 04:37 AM #11
      red sucks
      white ftw
      (ironic i know lol)

      Steel Grey for the win.

    15. 03-09-2009 04:42 AM #13

      Silver with those anthracite BBS' would look good.

      Ah ok.
      If you go for a sportback, go for an S3 - for the extra outlay, def worth the extra grunt !

      I reckon wait a coupla years and get a 2nd hand RS4 avant in blue [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      Just had a look at carsales - RS-4's are still fetching over $110k, damn!
      OK maybe S3 is better value atm [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      Do they make it in that bright orange colour that they used to do the old TT in? That with blacked grille and some black Ultraleggeras would look nice....

      Sprint blue doesn't look as good with the blackout grille.
