You're ordering an RS 3 and have to choose a standard option colour. Which would you choose?

I don't have pictures of all the colours, but some food for thought below and if you can fill any gaps please post

Is this a subtle way to say you're shopping Graham?

No not at present

The wife has taken to admiring them, but I cant see her running an RS.

If she were choosing it would be red, no hesitation. I'm undecided as yet. Silver is surprisingly rare on these, I've only seen one and that was a picture online.

Nardo and Sepang are BY FAR the most popular choices.

Hardly any Panther or white.

Average numbers of Catalunya red, mythos black, floret silver and Daytona.

The red is good, but make sure you see it in person and in different lights. It's often quite orange.


I went Panther as I wanted it on the SQ5 but the Mrs overruled and we got Glacier instead, so this time round it had to be Panther. I love how it looks in the light with the purple flick!


TBH the colour is somewhat irrelevant- the car is all about the noise. I don't think it'll ever get old!

Popular press/demo colour but I really like the nardo grey out of all of them.
Been on the configurator a few times looking at these. Still not seeing much change from 50k mind when I'm done. This is most likely the car I'll try for next but I'm going to have to wait a bit yet. Seems a bit more complete than the 1st gen car and the tuning options look great

I went Panther too. Was druling over an RS6 in panther at my local dealers the other day. I was sooo close to making them an offer. I'm only £90k short of their asking price.

I'd go for that if the car is coming in at £50K +.  I

Indoors with natural light like that shot? That would be good.
