Could be, I've seen a few but they usually have the special licence plates
used for non-residents.
The unintended acceleration cr*p left Audi with lots of unsold US models,
which they sold for some part here in Europe. There are a few 4000s and
5000s running around Holland, and I see a couple for sale on
and every once in a while. They're considered cool because
they're usually better specced than Euro models and the exterior
differences make them stand out. We have several 5000s in the Dutch Audi club.
Then of course there's personal imports- I've stripped a 5000tqa for parts
a while ago, personal import from MA.
