I have looked for some time on production numbers per color, with no avail. Does anyone have any pointers to find color UrQ production numbers? US based?
I would LOVE this info, but probably even Audi has no clue anymore.
Some colours are more-are than others, depending on model year.
I'll check with Bill Bremer, he runs the urq registry.
With his info, at least we can say how many of each colour/year are accounted for!
I see you have an '85!

Here's a list of the colours for N. American '85's...
1985 – USA – VIN 85F 900001 -> 85F 901500
Alpine White, L90E, P1
Amazon Blue Metallic, LY5Y, L6
Graphite Metallic (grey), LB7V, W9
Lhasa Metallic (Green), LA6V, W1
Oceanic Blue Metallic, LY6V, L7
Sapphire Metallic, LY5V, L5
Stone Grey Metallic, LY7U, U8
Titian Red Metallic, LB3V, W4
Tornado Red, LY3D, G2
Zermatt Silver Metallic, LY7Y, L1
I've never seen (on a US '85 car) Sapphire Metallic, Oceanic Blue, or Lhasa Metallic....I would rate them as the most-rare...along with a runner up of Amazon. I've seen only one.

Is that in Lhasa green? I cannot tell in the pics. It still bares the very rare headlights.
here's what Bill was kind enough to pass along on his documentation of the '85's.
Graphite (B7V): 12
Amazon Blue (Y5Y): 4
Stone Gray (Y7U): 5
Alpine White (90E): 10
Tornado Red (Y3D): 17
Titian Red (B3V): 9
Helios Blue (A5T): 2
Zermatt Silver (Y7Y): 7
Montego Black (Y9Y): 2
it is green, which is why I was asking. I cant even find a good example of lhasas metallic to gauge against.
any info you could help me find would be great! or at least a starting point for me to research even more... Thank you so much for the information you provided already
You're very welcome, I live for this stuff.
You can pop open the trunk, on the upper side, near where the sunroof rack is, there should be a colour sticker in that area somewhere...it'll be in code, like on my first colours post.
You can easily confirm that it is the original colour!
I'll find a shot of a Lhasa car and post it up.
Would you by chance feel comfortable PMing me the last 4 numbers of your VIN?
I've been keeping track of all of the '85's states-side.
..And if there's no sticker to be found, we can decode the VIN to find the colour.
Here's an example of where the sticker is (note the rear speaker)

More to come. Such a rare colour, on any year...hard to find pics...and given the different lighting in each of these shots makes it a challenge.

Yes, sorry LG=Lhasa Green..
I was being lazy..
And for the rest of the viewers, yes it has been confirmed that this is a true Lhasa Green car.
The only one I know of year-wise in the US.

Yeah, the WX is an interface engine, but sometimes the engine is alright if you're not hauling ass when it breaks.
At idle, (and if you don't try to re-start it) usually you're OK.
That is great news!!!
^^ I remember that car. It was quite nice.
I had a Lhasa Green Metallic '84 UrQ for a number of years. It now belong to a friend of mine. Great color!
Listening to Minor Threat is like turning on the Bat-Signal... In a few minutes everything will be OK.
