    Hi folks! New to this forum. Interesting read on here. Looking forward to joining in.

    Looking to order a facelift A4 Avant Black Edition. Can't decide on Phantom Black or Lava Grey. Viewed 2 side-by-side today, one each colour and still can't decide. I'm swinging towards the Lava Grey but something telling me to go Phantom Black. What's the consensus guys??

    Thanks
    Stu

    Hi Stu

    Yes, I looked at the Daytona too...nice but a little too light for me.

    was it a lava black edition that you saw today - I'm yet to see one!

    Thanks

    It was indeed a Lave Grey facelift model. Cardiff Audi. Fortunately it was very close to a Phantom Black model so I was able to compare. I am still swaying towards the Lava Grey as much as for the colour as it's practicality. Having owned cars of both colours the grey tends to look better when deprived of wash:)!

    Thanks guys.

    Ok - next one - what about the suspension. Should I take the standard option or the S-line 30mm lowered option.

    Bear in mind that if you go for a standard colour, it is likely to take less time to delivery...so Audi say... I ordered a Moonlight BE avant but it was going to be 6 months to deivery. I would say Black.
