Lovely! Same colour as mine, but I have the light grey interior.

Looks great. Can you post a pic of the interior? It'd be good to see the contrast.

That looks really good, except the steering wheel is on the wrong side ??

I´m just coming from the dealer. I decided for a Q3 just like yours!!
Cobalt blue with pistachio beige interior, 2.0T (211hp), S-tronic, Drive Select, AMI, ordered 17" rims as this was the cheapest option available, will put in some nice 19s!!
I bought it without looking at it (Still coming from Spain, delivered in a couple days, but it looks great in the pictures).
Anyone with experience having the beige leather? People have told me it stains easily when you use jeans? Is it that delicate?

No it doesn't. I had a Jaguar with beige leather for seven years and the upholstery still looked like new when I traded it in for the Q3. The only thing you have to watch is the trend that started a year or so ago for making jeans using ultra-dark dye - if you look in them you'll see a warning label (normally) that states that they will stain any light upholstery you sit on! Obviously you need to avoid those like the plague if you sit anywhere that has light upholstery.

We've had an A4 with beige leather for several years. No staining, no problem at all. Just clean it every 6 months or so with an interior cleaner and it comes up like new. I use Autoglym interior cleaner and find it works fine.

Good choice! But, I would order the cheapest 19" rims, in that way you get the 'wider' fender trim. Looks great imho.

Audidriver4ever, Are you sure about the wider trims. According to the brochure you only get them with the ORSP combined with 19" wheels in the UK.

Ups
You are right. Slip of the finger.
But, if you order the 18" you 'save' some money that you perhaps can use to order these wider trims and let the dealer paint and mount them on yours ( I know that's possible to do). That's most probably cheaper as ordering the 19" wheels. Ask your dealer if he could 'arrange' this for you with a nice discount


It takes some time, but I will try to get the Part-numbers of them (just in case).

First of all congrats on the choice. The car /engine is absolutely brilliant not to mention features / interior! I believe some nice 19 audi rims would give a nice finishing touch. The beige interior is something thatyou will need to care regularly and jeans normally are the bad vilans to spoil it but it is not hat you will use once and the seats will look terrible!Perhaps you will notice some dirt after1 or 2 months of intense use. What I was told here in Brazil by a specialist (RECARO dealer - and considerting that most of the leather in BMWS / Jagurd come from the South of our country) is not use use any products available in supermarkets (leather cleaners). You need to use JUSTa neutral soap with a clean and soft with just a touch of water (not much!). What we use here is a coconut based soap which is neutral and natural - after some cleaning it looks as new!!! GUARANTEED.Good luck again - brilliant choice on color! HAVE FUN!

I can confirm that my jeans haven't stained the Pistachio beige cloth either!

I think Rgassaf has not the cloth but leather seating. I read also in other Audi Forums that the leather could be stained from jeans.

No marks on my Beige leather seats, 18 months and 35k miles done so far, and still looking good.
Biggest problem with the beige, is the plastic at the base of the seats - the sides get caught by your shoes, and leave the odd black scuff....
