So here are all of the initial exterior color choices for the 2006 2.0T A3 Sportback. You cannot see them yet on Audi USA's site so I got these elsewhere. Some names are different across the pond but the colors seem similar. Have yet to find good swatches of a few colors, need to keep digging. If anyone else finds them on other Audi sites, please post the pic or provide me with the link so I can update this list. Of course these online colors are nowhere near accurate, but it'll give you a decent idea.

I will take my new A3 in a few of these shades, not totally set on one color. My favorites are Brilliant Red, Arctic White, and Lava Grey. I think it'll look great in either of the two Blues as well... Also have to factor in the black OpenSky roof, which I must have!

I've seen a red one and it looked real good. I've also seen pics of the Lava and it was sweet too.

Hmm...I figured the A3 would be a two door. Does anyone kind of see the A3 as a B7ish crunched avant?

Anthony

Yes, that's why I want one. The A4 is just at an odd size now, for me anyway. Not small and light enough to be a lot of fun and not big enough to be a true lux estate like the A6 is.

My perfect garage would have both an A3/S3 and an A6/S6, I'd skip the A4/S4. But that's just me.

"My favorites are Brilliant Red, Arctic White, and Lava Grey...."

You have red at the top of your list [:)][up] If you've never had a bright red car but always wanted one, submit. It does something to you when you get up close and personal with it. In two years of driving mine my style I had no tickets.

It would be my first red car if that's what I ended up going with. I just think it'd look so damn hot with that black roof of the OpenSky system in contrast with the red. Maybe some black wheels with polished lips to match. [cool]
