True enough, things are always better in the flesh.
3k is a lot to stand out though
I wonder if anyone actually orders an exclusive colour from Audi without actually having seen it in the flesh - would be a big gamble I guess. There must be colours or variants of that have never gone onto particular models before.
I think Audi have reduced the price. Exclusive paint is "only" £1730 on the Q5, an increment of £1120 over metallic or pearl effect. Still a lot of money but if you are spending circa £40,000 on a car I guess another £1120 is not that much if you want something special.
I would want to see it in the flesh before ordering. A colour chart or a photograph would not be enough for me.
Looks good in red but I wouldn't "waste" the chance of having an exclusive colour on plain old red. The Ipenema brown is nice on the right model and the purple stands out, you'll always get Barbie girls looking for pink cars but apart from that I think the colour would just be a subtle change from the standard and not worth the extra money.
Each of us have our own favourite colour and if one can afford it and is prepared to wait for longer delivery why not? Only issue I foresee is; a garish colour could be a problem when you come to resell.
