Thanks for the pics, Scott. Shots like this are helpful to let people see what the colors look like when it's not a perfectly sunny day. The more pics we can get of various lighting conditions the better.
I kinda like the Yellow (Imola?). With the black interior it really pops. I haven't decided on that color yet, probably don't want to be a cop magnet. My other choice would be Quartz Gray.

I'm not sure I've seen an Imola B8 S4 yet online. There's a few press shots, and I think a track video, but I don't think we've seen any owner shots yet.

While talking about this color, I'd like to ask a question to Scott Mitchell. When a customer brings in a trade such as this Sprint Blue S4, is the rare or "bright" color a positive or negative? I know common colors like white, black, grey, and silver sell the easiest, so does that make owning a bright blue car a tough trade in the end? I was all set to get a medium blue A4 when my dad brought up the resale idea and I backed out.

Just closing the loop, picked her up at about 10am this morning. First delivery on here in 2010?

LOVE it. It's taken me 10 years to get this car, but the wait was well worth it.

Yeah, I picked up my S4 a couple days before the end of the year (Dec. 30th) and think I was the last one in 2009. I'm very happy with my Meteor Gray, but your Sprint Blue S4 is absolutely beautiful! Enjoy!!!

It is important to consider resale when optioning your car and color is a big factor. On an S4 I don't think Sprint Blue or yellow are going to hurt resale at all, they may even help. Every vehicle is different and Audi does not make any "unsellable" colors like the VW Golf Harlequin. All this being said I still think silvers, black, white, gray and neutral colors have the best resale for the majority of cars.

I'm not sure I completely agree with this - maybe it depends on where you live. Our local dealer has had a Yellow S4 Prestige with 6MT, Sport Diff and carbon fiber on their showroom for two months now. They can't move it - no one wants yellow. I've driven it twice

I hear you. And I think I know which dealership you're talking about.
