They are made in Ingolstadt (SP) AFAIK ?

Look at this video

The guys are talking German and the computer screen is in German.

Also, people may be getting confused with this statement from Wikipedia;

Indian models went on sale in 2009-06, and were built from Audi's Ingolstadt facility. Launch models include 3.0 TDI, 2.0 TFSI (211PS).

Audi announced Q5 assembly would begin in 2010-03 in India to avoid import taxes and compete with BMW AG, Daimler AG and Porsche AG in the world's second-fastest growing major economy

IMHO - Those Indian produced cars will be for the Asian/Far East market?

Rapid - you just need to check your VIN number, if its starts W(AU) then it's made in Germany (therfore Ingolstadt).

Rapid, I have not heard or seen anything to suggest that European markets' cars are not made in Europe. I think you can get a VIN from the dealer way before car is delivered if you want to check.
