    Akoya Vs Avus - how different?

    Granted in the brochure they look different but hand-on-heart how could you tell which is which (if you didn't know about S-Line colours, the S-Line is Avus, the Sport is Akoya)

    Bearing in mind that the S-Line on the left was in the sun and the Sport in the shade, if I saw these two separately I'd be pushed to tell they are different shades of silver...

    Nope, not much difference [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]. But on the other hand, the Sport-version front looks better than S-Line, less "plastic".

    I could barely tell the difference either, matey!

    Amazing really - what with silver also in the A3 colour options as well.

    I like the way the S-line doesn't have those bumper strips.

    BTW, whose cars are these.

    Re: Akoya Vs Avus - how different?

    I agree with you TDi with those bumpers - the S-Line is a single all-smooth affair, but has an odd black underside part too.Not sure why there is a difference at all to be honest, seems a bit academic, Roof spoiler is nice too, must get myself one of those...

    We were playing a bit of "spot the difference" on the drive (neighbours must think we're saddo's [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] )

    The sport is mine, the newly-arrived S-Line is "One Team's"

    Yeah, I still don't get that mate.

    Was cleaning it (again!) today and the black strip on the back bumper is quite noticable.

    Re: Akoya Vs Avus - how different?

    I park my Akoya car next to the MD's Avus TT.

    Akoya definitely errs towards Lilac,which I like.

    Avus is a bit too 'wishy-washy' for me.
    It's neither one thing nor the other.

    Yip,no problem with that at all.

    In fact,I describe is at metallic Lilac (or light purple) when I describe it to people.

    To my mind,anyone who doesn't think it's Lilac either needs to visit specsavers or question how comfortable they are with their own sexuality... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

    Silver is very tenuous but,as I said before,they probably use the term silver to avoid scaring off insecure blokes.
