Looks like Avus to me, Avus is often called Avus grey pearl or Avus Silver pearl, depends what country you ask, its the same color...

akoya has more of a purple hue to it...

hope that helps

also if you are having problems deciding which to go for...If you want my opinion go for Avus, you cant go wrong with it...

As far is i know, the only Avus color is the Avus silver. check audi.de:s configurator for the colors...

That's def not Avus it has too much of a purple to it. Avus is just a very pure silver. So my guess is that Akoya color.

ok the one in the pics is Akoya, I was wrong in the begining, however paint your car Avus, its much cleaner, cos on overcast days Akoya looks really purplish...

Personally I prefer Avus, but would not have either with the single frame grille, the Dolphin looks great, and the black looks good too. The single frame grille makes the silvers look too nose heavy imho, they look good, but not as good as dolphin or Black.

i do agree with you, the single frame looks a lot better on darker colored cars.

Afraid not, I do live in England remeber! ;)

I only had the S-Line for 6 months before selling it, so didn't get as many pics as I would have liked, but it looked just like the original photos you posted.
