    It appears someone at Liverpool Audi has a fetish for green, I remember them having a S3 8P in the same colour on display.

    I like it, just think would be better with standard S3 rims and without the black pack.

    Exclusive is the way to go! My A6 was Estoril Blue, looked so good on the 20" Rotors too.

    Here you go, these are the stock images. I loved the look of it but the car had many more flaws than virtues.

    The A6 was very nice and comfortable, the 2.0tdi 177 felt very under-powered and the multitronic gearbox is a bag of sh**e. I certainly would only go back if it was 3.0 and quattro.

    Multitronic did feel weird when I was in a A5 that had it, no revs, no drama, very odd indeed. Too OAP cruising for me haha

    While we're on exclusives...how about this one from motor-talk.de? Unsurprisingly maybe, the owner isn't too keen to divulge the colour name.

    No, 3 hour drive away I'm afraid :(

    They were one of the 2 dealers that were most competitive thro' the broker carwow

    Only went with the other Dealer as they came in the best deal first. Offered the option to Crewe Audi to beat it, but they said they were on there limit with discount. Did see a friendly bunch tho'

    God I'm good, so there was only 1 knocking around then. There seems to be quite a few 8V's in that colour already.

    VW call it viper green and Seat Lima green. Think they are slightly different and much much cheaper then Audi's paint price.
