Default 2018 S5 SB with red leather (yes or no)

I may pull the trigger on the below loaded S5. Only concern is the red leather. I welcome any input. Thanks. The exterior is dark grey with red brake calipers.

S5 in grey/red is a hot combination.

You really have to love it and so does the next person to own it when that time comes. I went with black because I intercepted a dealer order and it came that way. Had it been red, I might have still gotten it.

Excellent choice...I wouldn't worry about the next guy or resale, we have this saying in the car business:


"There's an *** for every seat"...


That being said...I'm ordering Navarra Blue w/Magma interior...that should make a statement!

If you're concerned with the color after having seen it in person, it's probably not the right choice for you. I personally couldn't do the red interior, but to each their own.

It is a matter of personal preference. With that said, I am not a fan of interiors with a lot of red. Red highlights are fine but a whole red seating is just too much for me. I find it gaudy. But, that's just my opinion.

I waited for Magma red, and went through much to find it. It was a must for me as I have had black after black interior. Last time I had Magma red was back in 2007 when the S5 first hit our shores. Maybe it became almost nostlagia for me.
