      Wrong answer. The Former owner of Achtuning and the guy that created quattroworld Josh Decker imported a Avus Grey one. I can't think of the guys quattroworld handle right now but he is some pro athlete and now owns it. he frequents the B5 S4/RS4 forum. Ask Josh how big of a pain in the a$$ it was to import it and federalize it.

      NOPE.
      The we're never OFFICIALLY imported.
      A3's never were either but some exist.

      Cactus Green S4's, both B5 and B6 are VERY rare. I have only seen 1 or 2 in my life.

      There were 05 W8 Passat Wagons w/4-Motion & a 6-Speed in the US.

      Yes but how many I said they exist, but are rare IIRC. I think under 1000, with under 100 wagons.

      How rare are the Recaro Trophy GLIs? I had an '89, and I've never seen another one with the same interior.

      Not really rare.... standard on 87 and 88 16v GLIs. The 89s (at least some, maybe not all) had the reays. They're rare in good condition nowadays though- the pleather falls to pieces usually.

      Pontiac Solstice GXP model with the optional Z0K clubsport suspension package. Unknown number produced, but said to be less then the base model with the Z0K.

      interestingly, you're quoting a car that doesn't exist at all according to the solstice forums. the Z0K package only came on the base models. no gxp/turbo solstice has the Z0K package. GM decided the GXP suspension was mean enough to not warrant the extra work, in addition to the fact the GXP could already take on the S2k and Boxster for autox. the Z0K was designed as a miata/mr2 killer for C-stock, which it has done very well. Z0K could be retrofitted to the GXP's, but that is aftermarket and rather pointless (you'd be better off with coilovers for the $$).
      there are also no solstice coupe turbo's with Z0K options. again, only the base model cars.
      solstice coupe's would fit our rare list. 1152 Retail Ordered Solstice Coupes (approx 68% GXP) and 101 Company-owned Solstice Coupes. only about half the gxp's were manual transmissions.

      solstice coupe's would fit our rare list. just under 1k were built. only about 400 were gxp's and about half of those were manual transmissions... someday you'll see a coupe going for ridiculous money at auction. Pontiac's last hurrah.

      400? how many were yellow with a 6MT? there is a guy in Green Bay with one.

      none. solstice gxp's are only 5 speeds...
      i don't know the exact build numbers by color, but it's stupid small numbers of some colors. there can't be more than a few green solstice coupes (if any) i've never seen one. red, yellow, black, and white are the most common.

      I just figured it was a 6spd because I noticed a bit of roll back when he left the light in front of me and I could tell because of the way it shifted that it wasn't an auto.
      I honestly didn't think sports cars still came with 5spds.

      i saw a red one being pulled into a garage while i was visiting my friend's house. hopefully the car will get some appreciation someday, cause i absolutely love that thing

      Have fun with this:
      http://www.chevy-camaro.com/ch...s.asp
      In 1967, over 200,000 Camaros were built. Some options were quite rare.
      AS1 Belts, Front Shoulder -- 477 cars
      K30 Speed and Cruise Control; Cruise Master -- 305 cars
      K76 Generator; 61-amp Delcotron -- 136 cars
      Z28 Special Performance Package -- 602 cars
      One of the rarest Camaros would likely be a 1993 model with the 1LE Special Perf Components Pkg. This was a $310 option that was applied to only 19 cars that year.

      not a big deal... the 1st to 3rd are geared like a miata. very short, limiter in 1st is only 33mph-ish. 4th and 5th are very tall. the 3rd to 4th shift was always a bit "odd" in my 07 gxp.
      another american rarity - i think this was previously mentioned in this thread...

      White is certainly rare. The 6MT...I dunno. It's rare but not impossible. (Unless you simply meant a white 6MT - then yes that would be stupid rare )
      There's been an allroad with cloth interior on ebay the last couple months, though it may have sold by now. That's one thing I'd never seen before:



      That interior is amazing!

      Only TDI Passats I remember were the B4 and then the B5.5 w/the 2.0 PD TDI.

      1997 Eurovan non-camper. All sale-to-the-public 1997 Eurovans were camper models. The regular GLS and MV that returned to the US lineup for 1999 actually existed for 1997 via VWoA's own fleet. VW had a lot of trouble apparently on how and when to reintroduce the T4 to the US and they had some 1997 US-spec GLS and MV models in their own possession. They pop up occasionally on Craigslist and EBay, I've seen about 4 of these rare beasts pop up over the past few years.
      Also, Mk3 Golf TDI. Something like 3 of these were sold in the US (VWestlife knows more about these...I scanned through this thread real quick but didn't see him post up any mention of them.)
