    IIRC, quite a lot of the run out models are Avus Silver, so most are late plate models.

    I have an S3 in Avus. I also paid over the average pice for it 18 months ago. But worth it as it is fully loaded with the options.

    Found it by chance, never seen another one on the road in this colour, only one or two on the net.

    Love the colour! its pearlescent and changes very nicely with different light conditions.

    I have considered selling it, but only at a reasonable price.

    They are quite rare and in the 2 years I was looking for mine, i think i saw one or two come up for sale, but at very silly prices....to be honest, i dont think a colour can justify such a high price though, however they do look good!!!

    I bought one a few months ago and love the colour, especially when the suns going down. It was actually cheaper than a couple of others on the market at the time so wasnt a hard decision!


    Its just a bit of a shame that most of the new Audi's on the roads today are in this colour now!

    I own an a3 originally factory painted in avus silver. This colour was an option only available for s-line & s3 (late 2002->6/2003).

    I really love this changing colour, not boring as my previous silver.
