    S5 - Red or Cream leather?

    What would people go for in a black S5, red or cream leather?

    I'm worried that red may be a little too in your face and 'del boy' but also worried that the cream leather may be a bit 'old man' look.

    Just can't decide!

    Ditto - Audi don't do cream leather very well.

    That is what I originally thought but black with black leather seems to be very hard to come across.

    Black heated full electric memory seats all the way........cream - well it starts getting grubby from day 1 and looks tired before it should, red - as stated above looks like tarts handbag - but then again, it does remind me of old Jags

    I have Magma Red in my S5 and I have a friend with the same interior in his Phantom Back.

    They both look great!

    When I see pics of black interior on black, grey or silver S5's they just look boring IMO

    The Audi interior images are a little too "dynamic" in that they make the red look pink rather than rich red.

    Every person who rides in my car loves it, and no one ever comments in a "whoa that's bright" kind of way

    If its the dark red i think that looks lovely. The bright red as seen in some a4's is horrid!!

    Can't go too wrong with black though

    Uh Damian mate, thought you had more taste, lol, I'd say neither, Black with black/silver alcantara is nice, I've had that on 2 cars & its been great cause nice contrast & winter isnt cold & summer dont stick to it.
