    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:thrashi:

    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.
