I liked the look of Meteor grey until I saw it. It looks like primer unless in very bright light and then you only see a little bit of mettalic flake.

Monza silver - it's ok but a bit "none"

Phantom black. Will look good when clean but, again, there seems to be very little metallic flake and it didn't seem far from a solid black to me.

Lava seems to have the most flake from what I've seen so far.

None of the metallic paints seem very metallic to me.

Or maybe it's just me being too hard to please?

Lava Grey & Phamton black aren't metallic - they're pearl...
Smarta**e [:p]

But I thought they had some flake in there?
you can order saddle brown for £1600. Thats about as close to flake as I can get.

Ooh, nice spec Damian! Have you got the green light from the powers that be?

Need to PM you....on its way.
no, the meeting is on Wednesday so its still all up in the air ATM. The above is for a 140, if I go for a 170 then something will have to give...I guess that'd be the Bose & the light and rain pack

Apparently, The bose is just a sub and amp in the boot.

The speakers from the amplified system and the bose are the same...i believe.

I think they're by nokia but am not'll have to read up on it but on other audi forums, many people are saying bose is waste of money on the A3..

And the paint - I dno. The grey does look like primer though..
