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.
