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.
