I too am taken with the LRG. I have had the car for about 2.5 months. In bright sunlight, the metallic flakes just explode. It almost looks like a different (just as awesome) color. I like the Kalahari top on this vert too. The two go together very well. I had never seen the LRG before I picked up the car I bought. The longer I have it, the more it grows on me. I also happen to like the Brownstone leather very much, but I am still on-the-fence with the microfiber inserts. I think I like them, but I don't know. True, this is an A6 (automatic) and truth be told, I would have preferred a 7 speed manual, but I remain pleased with it. It seems that we all have a story (or stories) on this forum.
