OOOOoooo, great news. Look like I'll be taking some time away from work to play with this for a little while. One thing that I can see right now is that there really isn't much color selection. All neutral black, silver, white, blah, blah, blah. You can't even get red.

I am hopeful that Audi USA will extend the Audi Exclusive options to the Q3 line. For those unaware, on nearly any Audi, you can spend an additional $3900 for custom exterior paint, made to order. It's a very cool program, befitting a true luxury marque.

More details on Audi USA's 2015 Audi Exclusive program is available towards the end of the following PDF file:

2015 Audi Exclusive colors include the following. You can Google online for photos of most of them.

40 Sable Brown Pearl Effect Z8P 80 Bronze Monte Carlo Metallic 226718

I'd like to order a Q3 in either Amethyst Metallic:



or Verdant Green Metallic, for a truly uniqu3 Audi Q3:



A Samoa Orange Audi Q3 would be a contender too.



For now, Audi Exclusive is not available on the A3 or Q3 in the USA, but I have heard rumors that the program will be available for Gyor, Hungary manufactured vehicles (A3 and Q3) within the next 6 months to a year, after the initial order rush is filled.

...and actually Audi Exclusive has an almost limitless pallete beyond those colors above that they've already mixed. In fact for another $7500 (on top of the $3900) they will MATCH to your specification and satisfaction ANY color you can supply them a sample (.5 m2) of...

Btw, several of the colors above are already in the EU pallete (and/or have been since 2010), including Samoa which was a rather popular intro color -

Yes the Exclusive options are cool, but at the extra cost, whether the intial $3900 or the combined $11,400 you're looking at a WHOLE lot more car. Thats a third of base MSRP!

Yea I thought Samoa Orange had been included in the standard palette already?

As @rnlabas mentioned, Samoa Orange has been available elsewhere (I'm in the USA). It's not a standard color option for the US market. I guess the decision makers in Germany and Virginia believe US buyers won't buy a real color! (and perhaps they're right)

i can't get over how epic Amethyst Metallic can look, love it!
Hey - you're so enthusiastic (or just plain nuts;-) for this color, I'll chip in a dollar towards your exclusive fund to get it - hah! Just post a charitable contribution destination (and a release to supporters that they're not contributing to anything illegal except to support your Audi lust) ... and see what happens.

I recall some kid who did this in Popular Science back in the early 60s (I'm old) and asked for just a nickel to be sent to his laser flashlight fund - shoot, the kid collected some $3K, so ....?

Btw, I NEED an R8 V10+ Spyder, and I'll even take it in Amethyst metallic to honor you Quatto (with Tuscan/carbon interior), if everybody gives ME $1000 each towards it ;-)
PM me for details and charitable contribution directions...

I'm a mix of being plain nuts and crazy for that color. I just love how it looks :D

It's not for everyone, but it sure is for me.
