A guy I used to work for tried to order a 1.8t A3 when they first came out in that bright/light metallic green with a red checked interior. It was a business lease and when he faxed the order through (remember this was the 90s) they called him and asked if it was a mistake. When he said no they replied "don't be so ridiculous, we're not ordering that. We need to sell this car once you return it".

He ended up with one in that nice metallic blue with black leather.

Gunmetal wheels and that wouldn't half be bad I think.
Agree.
I like orange but not colour matching the bodywork and wheels.

I bought a new elise in 1999 in that green colour (paradise green). No red checked interior though

Search button. Put in "Car configuration", you'll get a list of threads going back years.

I smell BS, Audi have never offered a red check interior on an A3, even with the exclusive options, red leather maybe, but not red check.

I have all the old spec pdfs somewhere nerd
