View Full Version : Beluga Brown

Anyone have any pics of a beluga brown A3. I've been quite brave and ordered one without even seeing the colour and every dealer I pass does not seam to have the colour in stock on any car... Any help...???

Found a gallery for you to look at - Audi A3 - Belugabraun Metallic | Flickr - Photo Sharing! (http://www.flickr.com/photos/bigblogg/7348469292/in/photostream/)

Doesn't look too bad!

Cheers Chris, quick reply. Looks good, I picked the colour based on the ipad app and it looked really brown...! I like the flip in the sun.. Great images. Would love to see more so if anyone else has any more links...

I ordered Misano red - I'm beginning to regret the choice and wish I'd taken that brave pill and gone for the brown - it's not as if I'm counting on resale value :)

Company car for you too...?

18-04-2013, 05:34 PM
Yep - that's why I didn't opt for the chrome window trims or roof rails.

Company car for you too?

Yes mate, don't think anyone is that brave to order a colour without seeing it otherwise.... Lol (well I certainly aint). Can't believe the length of wait for these cars my VW CC was only 10 weeks.

Cool - I haven't driven one yet either. Or seen the colour in the flesh. :D

I had a test drive in a Misano Red S line 3 door. The colour is lovely and I almost chose it, the drive is actually better than mine and similar to the new golf ( obviously they are both sitting on the new MQB Platform) it's a damn site better than the CC. That had bricks instead of suspension. when's yours due...?

13th May - if the lease company is to be believed. Got my order in when free Nav was on too :)

18-04-2013, 06:38 PM
That's good, me too. Got the sat nav and because mine Is in build year my14 I also got DAB for free. What a touch... If I would have spec'd that my p11d would have been higher for it...

18-04-2013, 06:41 PM
Didn't realise DAB was a freebie - not that I want it anyway, signal is still poor everywhere

18-04-2013, 06:44 PM
I've never had it before so will have to take your word on it but don't doubt you. Lol all cars with a build date after June 1st fall under the MY14 year and audi have announced that all Audis after this date will have DAB as standard... looking at you mileage I take it your a rep...

18-04-2013, 06:49 PM
No - IT consultant, my mileage is mostly just commuting to work and back - 84 mile round trip - and the fortnightly trip to Aston of 250 mile round trip.

18-04-2013, 06:53 PM
I'm hoping the audi will be quite comfortable as I do high mileage too (95k so far) and the CC does have the interior sorted, almost got another one because of spec but liked the idea of a different car. Don't know about the a3 interior yet but will learn to love it I spose...

If the S Line ride is anything like my GT on 18s..... comfortable it won't be.....

18-04-2013, 06:58 PM
Did you get the S Line suspension...? I chose it but had a phone call a little while after saying they don't do it any more and are putting the Sport ones on.

18-04-2013, 07:12 PM
No - following reviews I read, I went for the SE but specd a few other things:

Misano red, Kinetic 17s, Comfort package, Storage package, non smoking package, Nav, Upgrade to Audi sound system

Spent ages on the audi configurator too... :)
