Hi,

I'm considering this car in a 2022 chronos package. Do you still like the color. Any problems with car or color. I know some one said that color is hard to hide the scratches.

Thanks,

Karen

I could be wrong but I don't think Antigua Blue is offered anymore, it was only in the 2019 model

I still love the color and am so glad I chose it. It does draw attention - I get a lot of compliments on the car and I think it's 90% because of the color. If it were white or gray most people wouldn't notice unless they're specifically thinking about EVs or into cars

Hi

it is offered on the 2022 but only with the Chronos package which was the prestige package on 2021.

Here are before and after pictures of my 2021 Audi E-Tron Sportback, Antigua Blue Metallic, S-line trim, and black optics package!

The Antigua Blue color is absolutely gorgeous! It's visually stunning & unique which is exactly what I wanted! There is a tinge of green which makes the color feel high end and custom. It's definitely not some hideous bright blue color that you see on some other vehicles. I think Audi hit it out of the park with this one!

In order to give the vehicle even more "OOMPH" and "WOW" factor I had the wheels & emblems/badges painted in gloss black, calipers painted in orange, windows tinted, and finished it off with a ceramic coating to give it that extra gloss & protection. Needless to say I could not not be more happy with the final result!

Let's roll!

I was thinking of pearl beige or Monaco grey with either Antigua blue or plasma blue. Why did you choose sport back over suv. I have been going back and forth with both. If I got suv in Antigua blue for the 2022 I would want their chronic package which was their prestige package my only interior choice color would be the grey but with orange piping. Not sure I want orange.
Thanks

My previous vehicle was a Range Rover Sport which had more of the traditional SUV body style. So I wanted something different and given the fact that I didn't need the additional cargo space the Sportback was perfect for me! Keep in mind that there is still plenty of room with this model. I also prefer the look of the Sportback as well.

Orange is Audi's color to symbolize their electric vehicles which is why I painted the calipers this color (see the orange trim on the charging door emblem). I wanted to remain true to that theme while blacking out everything else.

I did see Plasma Blue in person and the color felt muted/muddy to me. The Galaxy Blue color felt a little outdated. I drove to a dealership 3 hours away to get the Antigua Blue color and I have no regrets! It's definitely a personal choice and so I'd say get the one that best suits your personality and lifestyle!

This is the colour we’ve ordered and I’m so nervous it will look like the Ford ST blue. Haven’t been able to see the colour first hand. Only pictures

Hi, same here, also from UK, and have not seen any in the flesh, I dont think it will be like the Ford ST, check autotrader there are couple on there, I am going to make a trip to see one, the good thing is there isn't a lot of this colour on the road so we should stand out!! I've ordered the sportback 55, the other colours seemed a bit boring to me

That’s the same as what we’ve ordered. Where are you going to see one? I’ve been looking on autotrader and the colour still seems to vary a lot, due to lighting etc. When is yours arriving

OMG the lighting in the pictures is sooooo different, I see 1 and it looks amazing, then I see another and I'm like 'what have I done???!?!?!' All the garages are quite far for me to just go and see, so I have to plan the trip to make it worth the visit, the closest is Reading and its up for a bargain £103,800!!! With comfort and sound pack with panoramic sunroof... brand new of course...
Mines arriving October 2021, working from home at the moment so no point paying for it to sit on the driveway... Podpoint charge point being fitted next Friday, already changed energy supplier to Octopus Go, gives you 5p per hour charge from 12.30 to 04.30am daily cutting car charging costs so I'm all set just need a car to plug in...! If you decide to change to Octopus use my referral code and we both get £50.00 credit to our accounts, also log onto Audi they are giving £150.00 credit on a RFDI card which you can use throughout Europe
Octopus referral code - share.octopus.energy/witty-may-112

I know what you mean about the lighting. I saw a blue Audi in a shopping centre today, next to a Ford blue lol and was relieved it was so much nicer. Reading isn’t close to us either. I don’t think I couldn’t pull off being a able to afford a £100k car!!!
Thank you for the code. I think that the provider we’re going to use. Ours should be arriving in August. I’ll keep you updated.

My previous Audi, a 2007 A6 Avant had one of those "metallic" paint jobs. The perceived color changed dramatically depending on the lighting....sometimes deep bluish; sometimes dark grayish. I never really figured out what the actual color was!

Hey a few questions from a prospective Etron buyer. First, I was debating the blue colors. Plasma blue looked good on edition ones initially, but felt mute the more I looked it up. Navarro felt too purplish sometimes but ok. Then I see your pics of antigua blue and I absolutely love it, Great job E-tron guy! Just a few questions:

  • I can't seem to find any stock online in this antigua blue (used cartrader, cars.com, edmunds, google. etc.). Audi website doesnt give me a chance to see national database. Do they exist. Did you buy yours in the US.
  • Is yours 2022 because you also mentioned S line which I thought was a only available in europe at this time. Did this come to the US already.
  • Is it better to custom order new one and get chronos edition.
  • Also, for other etron, what is the best interior color for a luxury and practicality reasons. Thinking okapi vs beige.


Sorry for "noobish" questions but again new to the forum

Owen
