I like the Daytona with the blacked out trim. Did you see the pics in the following thread?

I would think the Daytona would look better with the black trim. Had Daytona been an option for me, I very likely would've gone that way since I love greys and Daytona is a really nice shade. Scuba I think works really well with the standard chrome trim.

I got the Scuba with chestnut leather and the low-gloss ash trim. It is a great combination. One of the other salesmen at the dealership (not the one that I bought the car from) said it was one of the best combinations he'd seen in the Q5.

Finally saw a Scuba Blue in person and I think it looked awesome. Unique in that most Q5s on the road are white or a variation of black/gray.

.....very different colors...... each will give very different overall impressions.

Scuba seems more sporty, younger, attention-garnering.

Daytona is more subdued, classy, complex, changeable, subtle.

I personally think the Daytona offers more aesthetically.

I opted for Glacial White, Chestnut Brown Milano with black headliner, and it was delivered to us on Jan 4th. I *love* blue cars, but could not fall in love with Scuba - and we thought the Midnight was a bit dark for Texass summers.

OP, you should see both in person in different times of day. The first time I saw scuba was in bright light, and the color really popped. The second time I saw it, the weather was overcast and it looked totally different, much darker/richer. Third time was a little brighter, and looked totally different.

Here are some pics I took that give you a sense.

Good luck with your decision.

JBD, just kidding. To each his own.

I went with the Scuba blue and Chestnut sport interior. I get a LOT of compliments on the color. Especially looks great in the sun and shows the contours and creases.

I like the grays also, but you see them everywhere by comparison.

Exact same combo I have. I believe it's probably the most common combo with Scuba, at least from the people talking about theirs. I think that the Chestnut and Ash go perfect together, and brown goes with almost anything.

Not Daytona! Monsoon and some of the other lighter greys sure, but Daytona's really nice in person. Got to see an RS4 in Daytona a while back and that was something.

Thank you all for the opinions and links provided. As some of you mentioned, since too many grey vehicles out there, I ended up ordering the Scuba Blue. Can't wait!!

Awesome! There is such an ocean of white, grey, and silver in every parking lot.

Congrats! You really couldn't have gone wrong either way, as you could nitpick on either color (the base blue in the Scuba is the same color as my dad's Camry ). But both are fantastic choices.
