Took these as the dealer was detailing the car. Photos don't really do justice to Pearl Effect paints. I know from my experience with Avus Silver. God damn I love this car.

(these are also for you Quattrings)

Ah man - that looks incredible!!! Thanks for posting BBT! The more I see this color, the more I'm happy I went with it. Rector is only about 500mi away from me, I can be there in about 8 hours - lol

LOL. I think you are the only person in the world as obsessed with this car as much as I am... I need to get a grip....

Today they had it parked outside in the sunshine so I had to have another walk around. Too bad I didn't have my camera again. Can't wait to actually drive it. Hopefully next week.

What do you think about a darker window tint? I've never been into dark windows but this CG image from the German site looks cool. I'm going to think about it. That reflective version. I think it usually hurts resale value though as not everybody wants it. Although if you don't go too dark maybe a non issue.

I agree - usually I like a 'medium' slightly reflective titanium tint just enough to keep it cooler in the summer and save the leather, but that picture looks incredible and gives the S5 an even more sophisticated, aggressive look. That's a great idea. The only thing to be concerned about is the local authorities. Sometimes they don't like when they can't see who's driving. Why can't we have the same laws as Nevada on this - lol It gets up to 110 degrees here in some parts. I am definitely obsessed - hahaha I blame Audi for teasing us for so many months!

Can you comment on the "Blueness" of the paint? How does it compare to BMWs sparkling graphite? Ill attatch a pic if you need one.

Greeney, I wouldnt say it's a sparkley grey as its a pearl effect. Can you add a pic to show me what you mean?

After seeing an S5 recently in person, I think the window tinting by default is more than adequate.

Anyhow, nice pic...thanks for posting.

Hi Greeney,

I'd certainly say it's similar but as always difficult to tell from standard pics. If you look at my pic above I'd say the Audi is a little darker.

Just stuck mine away in the garage but when I get it out tomorrow I'll take a close up snap of the paintwork so you can make your own mind up ;)

I have to confess to being just as obsessed as the two of you sickos.
