hi folks,

does anyone know if and how frequently Audi might change the model colours? (main question)

we will be placing an order in a couple of months for an S-line - the present colour offerings all have drawbacks and 2 thousand pounds for alternatives is pretty steep

we love glacier white but every other audi seems to be white - we dont want another black car -

we don't much fancy the silver, the greys or the sphere blue (personal taste)

which leaves brown, cobalt blue - or platinum beige

we're not sure brown (our second favourite) goes with a black interior - any opinions?

anyone seen the cobalt? is it as rich and deep as it looks in the brochure? - or just another dull hum-drum blackish blue

also the plat-beige - is that just a typical light sandy gold? or does it have a warm pinkish element like some pics seem to hint? pics on the web seem to show both

honestly not trying to start colour wars here i know its a matter of opinion... I guess the best thing would be to ask the local dealer to advise when a car in the shortlist colours can be viewed -

but any opinions much appreciated thanks.

cheers

I agree that the colour choice is poor. Maybe they might improve colours in the 2014 model year due out soon. The A3 has a greater range of colours

Totally agree on the fact the colour range is poor.
No doubt you have checked out the Gallery pages on this site - I've put several of my Caribou Brown one on there - admittedly I went for the light interior as I just don't like the dark inside....

thanks all -

yes jules carib-brown is a nice colour and right up there -

but we want the s-line - and the black interior (another limited choice) might not look right with the brown

anyway - we have a couple of months to see some in the flesh

cheers

Didn't realise you couldn't get the S-line with the lighter interior to be honest!

Apparently orange is a good choice as it'll be worth a fortune when you sell it due to its scarcity ;)

Ha ha that pink car is brilliant!

I have gone for Glacier White although I have no idea how I am going to keep it looking clean so hope I have not made a mistake.
I would have liked there to be a nice mid metallic blue (had it on a 07 BMW 3 series). I intended to buy the grey one but the white looked so nice in the showroom and I didn't want silver as I currently have a silver car.
I think the orange looks great too.
