I think Avus is a little darker. I remember seeing a fair amount of Avus e36 M3s a few years back-- and thinking that it was a really nice color. Somehow, the Topaz just doesn't seem to have the same richness and depth. I say "bring back Avus!". If they'd offered that color I would've gotten it.
They **never** publish a list, or tell us anything official; in fact, they discourage special orders. Every time that we have a question regarding availability we have to pester them for the latest current offerings..
