I've seen some Audis that looked fairly handsome in browns tones.

The metallic coppery-brown on BMW's and Audi's lately are pretty nice, but I think may have the threat of looking dated too quickly... Like the copper orange of mid-2000's.

The dark chocolate brown leather interiors in recent year are quite nice.

I've seen pictures of a rolls royce (in dubai or somewhere like that) in brown that was pretty nice

My friend has a limited edition brown S600, it changes hue depending on the light. It's pretty nice but I agree with whoever said that it looks best on bigger saloons than a true sports car.

I was talking about green, but it's same goes for brown and a couple other colours.

A Q5 might start at 35k but I bet they sell two of those in the US per year. We priced a Q5, 3.2, with Prestige package and that starts at 50k. Also, leasing residuals were for shit compared to MB and BMW. A shame as it is actually a nice ride for its class.

I'm not going to comment on that.

Don't you have a business bank account or are you trying to hide the ¥'s, with the business you guys are doing an accountant would be worth the money in tax savings.

Business accounts usually have a good deal, when it comes to exchange rates etc.

I'd be surprise if that were true. Lots of budget ballers in the U.S., fake it til you make it.

wow, that's so true.

the color depends on the car

some look good in a 'toy color', some need something more staid

imo it also depends on the clime: a bright 'toy' color might work well in AZ or CA, but not so well in the Yukon or Siberia lol

 

some of the new 'earth tones', copper, bronze, etc., look alright...

 

Audi makes a few great brown interior (nougat and balao) but needs matched to the exterior

on the A8 they have only 1 brown (actually metallic beige)

 

not sure where this fits in :D

The metallic earth tones will become dated looking in due time. (I'm a member of a color association that forecasts colors). It is OK if you plan to sell your car in 2-3 years but you also tend to get a higher resale value if you stick with classic colors.
