I was checking out the new 09 A5 on the Audi site and noticed that there is a new color option, Monza Silver. Have any of you seen this color and/or have pictures to post. I'm guessing that it must be similar to the old Avius (however it's spelled) Silver.

My Aruba Blue A5 will begin production in a few weeks and there is still time to change.

Also, have any of you seen the pictures of the 09 Acura TL. I think it's a huge let down. My outgoing 06 TL was a beautiful car but the 09 replacement looks fat. Seems to me that Honda/Acura is really in a design funk.

Thoughts. . . .

I wish. I really don't live close to any Audi dealers, and every time I go to one with the hopes of seeing an A5, they are always sold out. I'll keep trying though, and will post pics of the new color if I can get any.

Here are a couple of pics of Monza Silver on an S5. It's a great looking color based upon these pics. One of the guys at my dealership said he's seen Monza Silver in person and thinks it looks incredible.

looks good, a little bit lighter than the Avus Silver? (I had an Audi TT in Avus Silver which was silver in sunlight, but almost dark (purple) grey when raining, really great.

Awesome pictures, thanks. I still think I'm going to stick with Aruba though. Seems like most people go with either black, silver/gray or white. The blue will be a nice change (although it looks good in any color)

I think I just threw up in my mouth...I had an '05 TL and loved it, but this new one is really not appealing to me. The exterior looks awful! Inside is still decent, and one of the things I really loved is the little cover that goes over the cup holders - good stuff! It also looks like they've ditched the touch screen navi, which I really liked, but I know that a lot of others didn't.

Saundena, did you look at S-Line on you Aruba Blue A5? The order guides say it's available, but the "Build Your Audi" does not allow S-Line on an Aruba Blue A5???

No I didn't. I was told that if I went with the SLine, I'd have to wait until March for delivery. I wonder why Audi has the options seemingly confused. Anyway, have any of you been to Audi's website recently? I don't like how they changed it. They used to have 4 views of their cars that you check out in each of the different colors. It seems that they have gotten rid of that feature. Oh well. . . .
