You should be. A pearl white has always been my No1 choice, it just
happened that my Audis always wear a different colour. Wait till you
chip it up to 300hp like mine, or Eric's or Scott's (PDQ collection) or
many other's on the list and start blowing everything around you in the
weeds, including non-turbo Porsches, non-ZR1 Corvettes and almost
everything below them on your 2ton "old fart's" 4 door sedan. In the dry
and in the wet, asphalt or snow, strait line or twisties. Best of luck
with it, Louis!

It will, trust me (just ask mine or almost any other lister's wife, er
"quattro widows", like they call themselves).

UrQ= Ur (original in German) Quattro, the wild turbo quattro coupe with
wide flared fenders. Very sought after by most Audisti and usualy
BTDT=been there done that
YMMV=your mileage may vary
PITA=pain in the ass
WOT=wide open throttle
IMHO=in my honest opinion
etc. I am sure other listers will continue. Ask as you encounter them.
Have fun on this very informative list.
