Thanks, I thought I'd included this in another post myself, but just for the US model. I've gone to the German site often (my German's not too bad, having lived there for a few) and it's always interesting to see what the homeboys get that we don't, or how much they must pay compared to us, which most folks in the US have no clue about - realizing that Audis are the cheapest in the US compared with anywhere else in the world!!

thanks for posting the link, i'll definitely have to look through it.
thank google for google translate, especially when it instantly converts language with that sort of ease.

Did you notice anything that is only available in Germany and isn't in the US? I wasn't paying that close attention.

Oh, about a dozen engine-gearbox combos, including NOT being able to get a diesel or the DSG at all, S-Line stuff, RS stuff, several standard colors - although Audi always tailors their color palettes per market/country/culture...

Colors seem more exciting in Europe. Why do they only offer such bland shades in North America? It makes the cars all look so sad and serious.

Yea all the Audis that I see here are silver white black or grey. I can't really remember seeing any other interesting colors. Do you think that if they offered them that people would choose them? It seems like it might be a bit of a chicken or the egg type problem.

I think so, and I have said so many times to both BMW and Audi guys - but they always admonish ME by saying Black and White sell the most - then Gray or Silver - and between those 4, account for some 90% or more - so the rest are just a few odd-balls and the stranger (like yellow or bright green or orange) are way out there. They have actually had paid deposit orders for cars even with special paint costs added (i.e. Audi Exclusive or BMW Individual), that buyers refused when they arrived. So the automakers get rather gunshy about special colors. In Europe or UK, folks are much more likely to distribute their color choices out beyond 4 colors - hence the broader market offer in the first place...

I hardly see harleys but when I do they're in black, the closest thing i see to something in a different color are custom choppers which are almost always in some cool color.
