Well, Audi interiors are functional and very long-lasting - at 146k miles I can
still get the interior looking pretty good. Most British interiors (except the
very best) start looking quite tatty at much lower mileages. Audi's interior
styling could do with a lift, I agree.
But I _do_ like the 'orange dash' ur-quattro at night, with every display
except the speedometer switched off, and even that very dim.
