Hi ALL,

I got a great deal from Jack Daniels Audi in Paramus NJ on a 2014 RS5 with Black Optic, Navigation Pkg 78K MSRP. The only thing that has me back and forth is choosing a color. I cant make a decision. I am currently trading in my 2013 Audi TTS in Phantom Black. So I already know how the Phantom Black looks like on a TTS. I dont want to lure too much attention but make a classy statement.

Any suggestions as I need to make a decision within 12hrs.......


Thank you

Oh man, Suzuka is exactly what you are looking for, plus a change from current. Also a very rare color. Only wins with Suzuka [up]

My shot of @S5CooP 's RS. The best rep I could produce through edits.

Thanks MOPS, even with the black optic package? I see the picture but what do you think of it with black trim exterior?

both are great colors..... I have phantom right now, but if it was me I would go with Suzuka. Phantom if you can wash it frequently!, but when you do it looks stunning.

Even better with the BO pack [up] All colors look better with BO:)

I have the Phantom Black which is of course classic, however I really like the Gray, it is classic also.

As you can tell, by this Pre War Bentley, that won best of show, at last years Concourse de Elegance in Boca.

The Suzuka is so cool. Eye catching, but in a subtle way and only to certain people.

Why care all that much about "luring attention"? If you drive like a asshat, it's not the color that will get you in trouble. It's your hard earned money, get what you want. With that said, I'd go Suzuka over Phantom. If it were Panther Black, I'd go with Panther.

Suzuka is such a bad ass color, and rare as well. Black is boring.

<sarcasm warning> Go with black; need to keep the Suzuka numbers down.

All,

I went with the Suzuka Grey!

Thanks for all your advice! I need to get out of my shell and get rid of dark colors.

Is it wrong to ask what a great deal is on new rs5?

Hi All,

It turns out that the RS5 I just got brand new had defective front ROTORS and a creaking noise coming from the rear left suspension. Getting the parts replaced. BAD LUCK this time

Sorry to hear that... that's weird. I hope you get her back soon, and don't forget to post pics!

Suzuka is the most overrated color in Audi history. Cool name, and it's rare but as far as how it looks? Nothing special.

Can't really go wrong with black on the RS5, though as others mentioned, Panther would be better than Phantom.

That's a great deal! Is it because you traded in your car? Thought I was getting a good deal

Gotta call BS here. It is very special to see in person.

Agreed. I never really liked Suzuka when I saw it in pictures but once I saw it IRL, I bought an RS5 in that color.

Agree w MOPS, Suzuka is way different IRL, just look at the group shot in the SoWo thread, the contrasts b/n Suzuka, Avis and Ibis really show well.

Mine sat at the dealer for 2 weeks before I went to look at it, I wanted a dark color again (black pref) and kept seeing the Suzuka as being white on the internet views, the first time I finally saw it in person I knew I was going to buy that car.... 1 yr later, still love it

lol.. nah.. Suzuka is not overrated as the color is gorgeous and rare. the most overrated one might be the Nardo Grey and Hyundai Veloster has the same color:

I've always loved the pictures of Suzuka's on the internet, even came close to buying a TTRS in Suzuka. Earlier this month I was over in California and popped in to Circle Audi to look at the cars, a guy was collecting his RS5 Cab in Suzuka and I'll be honest, it did nothing for the cars nice features, the flared arches and swage lines just didn't pop out as they do with colours like Daytona, Sepang and the red, they just seemed to blend into the body. It is a nice colour and looks great on the R8 and TT but in the flesh it just didn't do it for me.

Still love the pictures though.

P40.

They were sold to me as P40 but they are actually based off the M40. Anyways, they are for sale if anyone is interested.
