We have Black Black and black in the 'family fleet' (A3 Sportback) which would be dull if we didn't have the 'Open Sky' option.You raise an interesting point, RGBargee.
Hmmn, thinking about it, I have Phantom Black with Black Milano and Black headliner. My god it will be dark in my car!
Not particularly bothered. I prefer the black leather as it doesn't appear to show marks as easily in my experience.
Porsche do have a Meteor Grey (Gray for those of you who can't spell Grey ) but it looks nothing like the Dull Audi colour IMHO. A 911 in Meteor looks cool an S5/A5 just looks dull IMHO. But it's a free world (thanks Barak)Unfortunately cannot see most of these exterior colors. I have heard that meteor grey is like Porsches color. Only colors seen live are the blacks and ice silver. One of the problems of trying to get a car that you can actually see, there are none around. Pictures really do not help that much for colors. Maybe should bag it and get a Porsche. At least I can see the colors and get a deal on 08's.
One of the problems of not being able to see a Meteor Grey in person. Like black and white but had my share of both colours.Porsche do have a Meteor Grey (Gray for those of you who can't spell Grey ) but it looks nothing like the Dull Audi colour IMHO.

My thoughts exactly.While I agree that one of the nicest things about the magma or cinammon interior is the contrast it provides (especially on the door inlays), I think calling the black interior dull is a little harsh.
I have a Deep Sea Blue S5 with Tuscan interior, and I wouldn't trade it for anything. Before test driving, I had my mind made up that this was the color choice for me (after spending hours on end on the Audi car configurator), but the car I test drove before buying was Meteor/magma, and it almost changed my mind. I normally hate red seats, they look cheap (check a 335 i with red- it spoils an otherwise decent looking car). The Magma seats on the other hand were so striking and rich in appearance, they had me drooling. Regarding Meteor Grey, if it looks dull when its dirty, wash it. I am very pleased with my color choices, and after having it since April, I know I made the right choice for me, but if that combo wasn't available, it would have been Phantom Black or Meteor with Magma. Pick what you like and be happy with it because you are the one that has to drive it. In other words, if anybody thinks my Deep Sea Blue and Tuscan looks terrible I really dont car because I love it. Have fun!I can get a quartz Gray with either magma red or black. Thinking that black although great may be to much of the near same color while the magma gives it some contrast. Any opinion of those that have these combination would be appreciated. I know it comes down to your own taste but it is always nice to get opinions. Thanks.
I have a meteor grey S5 with the silver leather. The exterior colour looks great when clean but does appear rather dull and bland when dirty, similar to blacks I suppose.
With regards to the interior whilst the contrast of the silver with the black carpets, headlining looks great the seats are an absolute nightmare to keep clean, would certainly not go down that route again.
red would appeal short term, brown - no chance. your best bet would be black in my opinion.
