Too many IMO , but it looks like the Cab might become a collectable later on

Just checked the Audi Annual Reports for 2005 - 2009. Figures in there are:

Saloon Avant Cab
2008 320 330 201
2007 2401 2191 700
2006 4384 2666 589
2005 556
2004 4

7665 5187 1490 = 14,342

Thanks, so we are in the same ball park 99.9% (cab numbers are 13 adrift), rather than the 30k numbers that had previously been bandied around. At least that has been put to rest.

5199 Avants worldwide is not really a high number, only when compared to RS2, B5 RS4 and RS6 Plus.

As said previously with the number now appearing in scrap yards I would hazard a guess that at least 2% are now off the road permanently.

Several of us have tried to get those numbers from Audi UK, me included, but they seem unwilling/unable to provide them.

I seem to remember reading somewhere that there's an official registration database (not DVLA) that has the figures, but I can't remember where - anyone know/remember?

The DVLA will, for a fee, provide you with this information. I did a classic car insurance programme some years ago and they were able to provide useful stats. Numbers registered; un-registered; exported etc etc.

No idea what the cost is these days..........

We know the total is just over 3000, I'll try and get the breakdown but no promises. :)
