Hi,

Just wanted to hear some opinions on the S3 in panther black with black edition or chrome?

If I went black edition I might order the genuine S3 chrome mirror caps to break up the black slightly.

Have also considered Daytona and Aura but really love Panther back…have it on my PFL S3 and its stunning.

Many thanks.

I think on Black or Navarra Blue, the chrome looks better. On the other colours, Black pack works well.

As above. But since you asked the question. I'd go without BSP. Think the chrome on the black looks much more classy. Again, only my opinion. I'm not a huge chrome fan, but I'm not a huge black out fan either. I think with the black car, the chrome breaks it up a little.

Haha...Im 50/50 on it, just wondered what the general preference is :)

Me too actually....both look great so can't go too wrong :)

Most colours I prefer the BE to the chrome, but black can pull off either well I think.

BE probably is a bit cheaper if you want the same options.

As above, this is subjective, but if I were you, I'd go black optics....it is a must have for the S3 in my point of view.

It really is personal preference as has been said...I've gone for black with chrome and the shiny roof rails, definitely breaks it up nicely and you don't see that many around

I've recently ordered a Panther black S3 sedan. I opted to keep all the chrome because in my opinion it needed some of the contrast and some highlights the chrome/silver provided. I guess for the same reason the Glacier, Tango and Ara look great with the BSP I think the Panther looks best without it.

Each to their own of course but since you asked that's my 5 cents worth........

I've got a Navarra Black edition and just like you really sat on the fence with regards to colour choice, BE or not. I ended up going for the black edition in the end. I really like the look and pictures don't look half as good as in the flesh. I also like the fact it's look like a dark horse. You see it coming and you'd never think it was a rapid S3.

Like you, I also considered (and still do consider) whether to get the mirror caps to break up the black a bit. If anything the mirror caps are my favourite part of the standard S3 guise. I must say seeing some other NB S3's with chrome they do look lovely

Hi mate, I've got a Mythos Black S3 without the black pack - I've attached photos for your reference. But I think a black S3 with the black pack + privacy glass would look so mean!

I saw one on autotrader that was black with black pack and had the audi rings in black too, looked a bit too much for me.

had the whole chrome vs black styling discussion with a work colleague many times (im the biggest wind up merchant :whistle2:)

like others have said, some colours look better with chrome, but thats just opinions....my opinion, black styling, never liked chrome. But then again in my opinion..I wouldn't get a black car :shutup2::shrug:
