Default Proposed 2015 A8 build specs....

Jury is still out on which direction I'm going, but if it is the A8 then here's how we'll build it:

2015 A8L 4.0T
Premium Pkg
Luxury Pkg
Sport Plus Pkg
Cold Weather Pkg
Rear Seat Comfort Pkg
Driver Assist Pkg
Panoramic Sunroof
Night Vision Assistant

Probable color combos:
- Moonlight Blue metallic with either Nougat or Titanium Gray interior, or
- Monsoon Gray metallic with above interior selections
- Brilliant Black with Nougat interior

Would likely go with black alcantara headliner for Nougat interior with either Moonlight Blue or Brilliant Black; would keep the moon silver headliner if choosing Monsoon exterior.

What do you folks think?

Pretty close to what I'm considering.

Having had the Titanium for two years am not sure I'd get it again....
Would absolutely do the Oolong again, but need to see the Moonlight in person.

Saw the Moonlight Blue in direct sunlight and at first thought it was Phantom Black. I had Phantom on another A8 and in direct sun it had a bluish cast, similar to the Moonlight Blue. In shade or under fluorescent lighting the Phantom looked kinda dull gray/greenish to my eye, and was never thrilled with that. My wife likes the Moonlight from a photo she saw, so this weekend we'll get up close and personal with the color. Like the Monsoon Gray, but am afraid of touch up issues with a lighter color (guess a clear bra would be needed). Still having a love/hate feeling about the Panny. BTW, what is the issue with the Titanium interior that would keep you from ordering it again?

I ordered the Monsoon Blue. Silver was my second choice. Black - too many Limo's!

The darker colors highlight the front grillwork and rear exhaust trim nicely. I was surprised at how much I liked the Moonlight Blue..that's what you meant to type, correct? :-). BTW, congrats on your car's final build phase. Should be in your hands within the next 3 to 4 weeks, I'd bet.

WHAT??? No B&O? Now that I have it it is a must on every car.
I have the rear seat entertainment but don't use it much so that option would fall off.
Are you going 19" or 20"?

It picks up dyes from clothing very easily and always looks a bit... well, dingy on the seat cushions and backs.
Also reminds me of driving around in the inside of a filing cabinet.

I don't hate it, but when I called my salesman I said "Sal, I gotta drive that and see if I can live with the color. Everything else is perfect."

Keep in mind I came from a sand beige D3 that looked more rich, especially with the light wood.
Assam Gray Vavona is off the table for me next go round too but it might look OK with other colors.
