Huh? Why does the nose on that A3 look considerably sharper and more pointed than that of a S3? Are the grills smaller on the standard A3's?

Looks like a saloon sky scraper to me hence different bumper good pic tho!

Am I allowed to put this in here? I haven't got (or even seen) the car yet, so this image from myAudi is all I have for now. The dealer has told me he's going to send me photos as soon as it arrives with him.

Cheers bud, yeah it's brilliant red for the time being. It's pretty difficult trying to keep it that red and brilliant though haha.

Ooh another Nogaro - and a direct comparison to mine - with mine being Nogaro / chrome and his being Nogaro / black

I saw that, think it was Dundee

First time post, long time watcher. Just collected my new S3 Saloon in Estoril Blue yesterday. Shame it has less storage and cubby holds than the Golf MK7 GTD I swapped it for but it looks and goes great and the technology is sooooo much better in the Audi except that even with ACC and the radar thingy unlike my Golf when I pull up to park the front sensors do not come on unless I stop and enter reverse gear first, very odd!

That's gorgeous! Shame you can't spec Estoril any longer.

Both these Saloons look fantastic, The Estoril really suits the Saloon and looks very expensive!. The Riviera?? is also a nice colour and is a bit more of a fun colour I think, I actually saw a new RS4 in this colour just yersterday and it looks great in the flesh.
Well done guys, great choices.

A couple of updated pics of the car. The blue has some varying shades dependent on the sun/shade.

First changes on the list are;
Lowering
New rims/tyres. The continentals are noisy and way to skinny.

That looks amazing. Not sure what it is about that majestic colour but my car smiles at me mischievously everytime I approach it.

Both cars look the nuts but the clarity and depth of the Estoril imo wins my vote.

Indeed. They had just discontinued the Estoril when I finally placed the order back in March. So I had a massive argument with Audi UK who agreed to manufacture without charging me exclusive paint code, felt the Sepang Blue whilst gorgeous when pristine clean it could look too bright too much of the time. Well chuffed at the 11% saving on base spec and all options too!

Rightly so. You and I, as a few others, are fortunate enough to have an exclusive colour for less than half the price! The fact that it is a crystal colour and was slightly more expensive than a pearlescent colour is a bonus too!

Missed this

Your S3 saloon will be so unique under the circumstances ;)

Very nice buddy & I'm very very jealous :(

Nice, but personally, since you've gone with the all black, stealth look, the machined wheels seem a bit off to me. I would go with all black in gloss. That would look killer!

Love the blacked out look though.

I disagree, the wheels complement the mirrors and exhaust perfectly with the phantom black

I was interested to see that black one as I have a Mythos black SB on order with black pack. I deliberated over the titanium finish 10 spoke wheels vs the gloss finish counterparts (+£200 somehow) and decided that the gloss ones would far more compliment the stealth look (I've ordered red callipers too). Those coloured rotor arms look a little bit too kebab gangster for me personally.
