Why can't I find pics of an S5 with Black leather with Black Alcantara inserts.

I have looked everywhere.

If anyone can help with pics, I would greatly appreciate it.

Yep, I've got some. :) Unfortunately, I won't be able to post them until this evening, as they're not with me at the moment.

alcantara!! yuck!! :p
What the heck is an alcantra anyway?

I've never had black carpet and boy is it driving me nuts keeping it clean looking. I know nobody has a choice of colors for the carpet in the S5, but I keep my shop-vac plugged in right next to where I park the car.

Alcantara is a composite material used in the Automotive industry for years. Mainly in high-end sports cars, like Ferraris. It helps hold you in the seats on high g turns. Plus it also looks amazing.

It has the appearance and feel of suede. It is hard-wearing material compared to suede.

This is why I like, F430 Scuderia. It is practically on every surface. I love it.
Those seats look more like some sort of mesh than Alcantara. They don't look comfy either, but I guess you should expect that!

I have my S5 ordered with Alcantara inserts and Black leather (I went with the pearl silver insert though not black) I think it will look great as my exterior color is special ordered Mugello Blue Pearl. car is on a boat and should be here in 5-6 weeks. I can't wait. I'M SO FREAKIN EXCITED.

But I thought you had already special ordered Glut Orange? :confused: I'm guessing you changed your mind about the color?

Also look in a 2007-2008 911 GT3RS the Alcantara interior on those is just amazing.

911 GTS RS, love that car.

I don't think I can order my S5 without the alcantara. I think I will regret it everyday, especially when I see someone else that has it.

But I only want it, if its the same color as the leather. I believe the two-tone would be too over the top for me personally. Although I do like it on other peoples cars. Sounds like you have a GREAT car coming.

The alcantara gives it the luxury/sport automotive look and feel. The full leather just looks like an office leather chair.
