anyone else in germany feel completely surrounded by audi's?

this seems to always happen to me but only while in the M3.

left lane on autobahn, going decent speed ~200kph. come up to what is 90% of the time a black audi avant. A4/A6. instead of moving over they speed up and don't let by for several minutes. when they realize you are still behind them, they usually let you by but then get right behind you. you build a pretty good distance between the other car and then slow down for another audi. they do the same thing. after an hour of driving i'll have a train of audi's.

and while i'm staring at all these audi avants, why not pick some color! i have seen 4 RS4 Avants here and all were black! where is the nogarro blue. i have yet to see an orange TT RS on the road.

There is one orange TT in my area and the Nuremberg dealer had 8 of them at one time...

I will definitely echo the sentinment though there every third car in Germany appears to be a black Audi wagon and that the Germans, in general, seem to only buy white, black, or silver vehicles!

My E93 blends I guess.....

same here! LOL

I guess most of the A4/A6 Avants are Buisness Vehicles and I would say 80% of them are lease! 10% are rental cars and the rest private people! For some reasons there is a better resell value for black or silver cars in Germany!

I dont really have a explanation for the slow left lane driving. Thats pissing me off

I have been by that dealership plenty of times on the way to the airport. I think all 8 of them are still for sale too.

Well, Audis are the cheapest "fast" car in Germany. And if you have saved enough or can get it as a company car you "deserve" to finally live on the left lane. Just like your Idol, the BMW ;-)
Oh and we Germans think that expensive cars should be black. Why? Never figured that out....
