Default Black or White Need Help - S5 Cabrio

Hi Guys,

I need help picking out color for my future S5 Cabrio. I'm having a hard time deciding which color to with; Black or White.

I've always been a black car guy but I do like the look of the white S5 with RS grill and blacked out trims.

For the interior, you guys think that I should go with luxury package to add ventilated seat with heated neck warmer? I'm located near Washington DC area and does get up to 100 during the summer time. But I do like the Magma red sport seat. The luxury package seats look very plain.

If you guys have any pictures of black/white cabrio would be great. Thanks.

I am a big fan of ibis white with magma red... but I am thinking the ventilated seats might win out for the cabrio. That is a really tough call.

Iím in South Jersey and I really appreciate the ventilated seats. I am a fan of black leather interiors so passing on the other color leather seats was not an issue for me. As always, YMMV.

The ventilated seats with the neck warmers are well worth it. I use the neck warmers when it is a little on the cooler side with the heated seats, then the ventilated seats make a huge difference when it is hotter, especially when humid. If you are getting a cabrio, those seats just add comfort and the ability to use the whole reason to get that car as much as possible.

My wife has a black A5 with the black optic package. She loves black, and it's a great looking car. My car is white. The practical difference between the two colors is that with white it's much more difficult to see fine surface scratches. White also stays cleaner in appearance longer. My advice is that if you have trouble deciding between the two, and you're the sort of person who is bothered by scratches, go with white.

I agree with @JerryGTI — You can own a white car but a black car owns you!

While a black car, that is maintained properly (and never, never ever, parked in a retail store parking lot) is a stunning looking car, that stunning look comes at a steep price in spending exorbitant time maintaining the paint finish. Black screams every little ding / blemish / dirt / dust / surface imperfection.

A white car is much more forgiving as far as minor imperfections and doesn’t require as much constant attention.

Think of it this way (this is not “PC” so forgive me upfront) —

A black car is like a needy girlfriend while a white car is like a wife, far less demanding and more forgiving.

Purely Personal Opinion, based on my life’s experiences. As always, YMMV!
