    There is a post on here somewhere with all the colours listed. From my 1999 launch brochure, you also have:
    Casablanca White W3
    Mineral Grey metallic Z8
    Azure Blue pearl effect 5J
    Cornflower Blue F9
    Ochre metallic (yellow/gold) Q3
    Hibiscus Red pearl effect (deep red/purple) 7H
    Mocha Brown pearl effect (yep, it's brown!) K3
    Cactus Green pearl effect E7

    Plus you could also order in Audi Lifestyle colours so any colour you wanted if you were prepared to wait and pay for it.

    Never seen/heard of a genuine White, Ochre, Hibiscus, Mocha or Catcus UK car.

    Difficult to tell really, doesn't look to dissimilar to mine when its cleaned up.

    I would say the one in the pics isn't metallic though as stated.

    No the best colour to photograph really tbh !
