What color combination have you ordered or do you like?

Personally I like the Meteor Grey with Magma interior and the Carbon fiber inserts if they are all carbon. I do not want yellow Kevlar strands. If the Kevlar is in there I will go with the stainless steel.

Does anyone know if these images of the A5 are Quartz grey or Sahara silver?

Also it looks like they used white leather in this car which is not an option. Also with the white carpet it would be very hard to keep clean. The images with the black or magma leather show dark carpet. Much easier to deal with, especially with kids.

The pictures that you have a link to are Meteor Grey and this was confirmed by Audi UK. I also have these pictures and of the S5 that was there also. However BEWARE, the model shows front PDC which is not standard OR even an option (in the U.K.).

its quite a large car although it has very nice lines. I thought black would hide the lines and silver would seem too big so a bit of a compromise. I also got some press pics in blue and not for me! Also the polished wing mirrors blend in well.

My Current car, a 04 Honda S2k, Is a light silver with a red and black interior, and its the best combination of any cars that i have ever owned.

Im thinking of getting the same combo on the A/S5 whenver I can get a price from Audi..

I have seen the Meteor Grey with Magma interior. The local dealership ordered their S5 demo model with it in. Must say it would go better with Black paintwork. At least the carpet isn't red like the 650i. Pics possible after Saturday when i am at the dealership COLLECTING MINE!:D

I would love to see pictures of the Meteor Gray w/ Magma. I have had black cars before and do not want another. They are too hard to keep clean in my area. They need almost daily washing. A dark gray is more in line for what I want.

Side shot with door open to show interior and exterior color.
Shot of adult in rear seat with drivers seat in normal driving position.
Shot of kid in booster seat with emphasis on kids foot position behind drivers seat in normal position.

I have a 9 and 4 year old (almost 5) that will ride with me often enough to make sure their feet fit. The 9 year olds legs are getting long enough to fit down under the front seats. The 4 year old legs are getting long enough to hand down over the front edge of the seat and get right in the way of having them to be turned all the time.

The alcantra vs. nappa leather can be found in other models on you local dealers lot. I prefer the nappa after sitting in it.

P.S. its because i have 2 young children that i chose black nappa leather. If it were me and the bread knife, i might have gone silver.

Adjust the driver seat to your liking and put you 6 year old behind and snap the picture from the passenger door. It should give us all an understanding of the space requirements for kids and passengers.
