In 2006 another body style changed where they went to the large fish mouth front grille and more streamlined tail lights. The B7 body style ran from 2006-2008. We are now currently in the B8 body style which started in 2009.

Like I said I may be off on my years but hope this explains things for you.
Hey! Who are you calling a "Bubble Butt"??

Correct, mine was one of the 1st MY2008 A4's in Canada, assembled in Sep, 2007. My point is that in CY2008 you could still buy B7's in Canada that were likely built early in CY2008.

I agree the B8 became available in North America towards the latter half of CY2008. In other parts of the world, the B8 was available in the late CY2007 timeframe. North America Audi models seem to lag Europe by approx 6-12 months.

For North America B8 is CY2008.5 -> present
For Germany B8 is CY2007.5 -> present

Well let me settle this so no further confusion goes on

If you look at my previous post you will see that I did specify in north America (and this is a Canadian site). In Europe the b5 a4 did start in 1994, but not here. Here I assure you it was 1996. And when defining model runs with VAG, you have to be continent specific. Try telling a European that you own a 2005 golf IV- he will laugh and say there is no such thing. And there isn't- in Europe. In Europe the golf iv ended in 2002 and the golf v began in 2003, which we didn't see until 2006. This is common practice with VAG. I spend about 2 month per year in Europe and get a good preview of what is coming our way ;P
most north Americans think the A3 is a recent model, and only available as a wagon- and they too are correct- in north America. But it has been available in Europe for many years and as a 2 door as well!

I Agree Jordon, my bad I guess, however we do have a few people that are not from north America that visit our site so what would be better to put the NA or the entire Audi in general? What do you guys think?

B6 A4 sedan- the J-Lo of cars lol!
The bubble but is what turns me off of the C5 A6's. Of course, the trunk lid spoilers completely change them for me.
But for both, I think, the avant is pure S3X

I think that is the reason most sites don't try to define by year, but rather leave it as platform (ie B7, C5, etc)
