The Pearlescent White is an option, and it is one of the most sought
after options in the Audi line. My wife's 20V 90Q is in pearl white.
It is more expensive to apply, much (!) more expensive to repair/match,
but is a wonderful color. It is very subtle, quite pleasing, and does
not show dirt/grime/salt/dogs at all.

I believe it was about a $400 option new (we bought ours used).
