    Looks good to me too! :)

    I had a TT in Akoya Silver, and it was a nice colour IMO. It did used to show different hints of colour depending on the light, and I think there is a smidgeon of pink in the mix (I only know that because a paint place mixed me up a tin when it needed the door respraying and he mentioned something about pink in the paint 'recipe'), but I never thought of it as 'girly'. Unfortunately, I wasn't really into photographing my car back then, so don't have any pics to share!

    Looks like a nice car too, if that's the one you're looking at buying?

    Very nice. Very similar to mine except wheels and interior.

    Akoya is a cool grey (as in colour temperature cool not neutral or warm). I was hesitant about the colour before I saw the car with my own eyes, but I instantly liked it when I did see it.

    Sorry - don't have any pics though.

    Is it miles from you? Maybe you could find an Akoya coloured car close by…

    Looks like the surroundings, sky, etc are affecting the picture, mines akoya silver and doesn't look like that.

    I'd describe it as a darker silver that has a metallic fleck to it.

    I have been detailing/machine polishing my Akoya Silver A4 for the last 2 day's and still have 1 more day to go, there is some pink fleck's, blue,and black, and even some purple too. I have watched this colour being made/mixed up at a auto paint shop and it's cocktail of colour's no joke, and still one of the best colour's in Audi's paint box.

    I agree with CMD.
    After having a couple of plain silver cars (Boring), IMO, the Akoya silver is a much better colour and you will not be dissapointed if you were to go for it.

    I have Akoya and all this pink purple talk gives the wrong impression. I went to see one at a dealer before travelling to see the car I now own. Nuff said its fine.

    Looks like a lovely car to me. My previous Audi was a 3.0 cab in Akoya, I loved the colour mate, you could see tinges of blue and lilac now and then but never saw pink. Always looked clean as well which is always a bonus. Good Luck.
