    white is the most popular color lately [​IMG] Audis don't really have the dramatic beltlines, creasing, or complex curvatures/faceting in their bodywork to really play off deep-looking colors like metallics IMO, especially not when compared to the other Germans and Europeans. I think they actually made this kind of statement themselves when they released that first Audi TT in opaque Aviator Grey... my B6 is Mugello Blue Pearl, it's essentially a navy'ish pearl. Don't want to buy a pearloid color again because I'm just afraid of paint matching. It was extremely boring on my B6, but I saw an RS4 Avant in Tokyo in MGP that was really quite noble looking. I wouldn't buy it again though, nor blue really. When in doubt? Black, gunmetal, or white, for widest appeal. Stay away from dark green or champagne unless you're buying a Bentley... though I think champagne is back on the up and up, maybe someday.

    I've never seen an S4 in white. But white cars are stunning if the paint is right (porsche cayman for example).

    Here is a white S4 and Quartz gray.. dont really like white but it seems many people are ordering them in Ibis.

    On a side note, here is a Brilliant Black, its more flat than the Phantom but the reason I am showing it is because it has the alum-optic package providing the aluminum look door blades (normally painted same color as the car) to match the mirrors, front spoiler and rear. I kidn of like the look with black and am leaning toward switching my color to phantom black with this package added. There are also some pics of the brilliant black w/o the alum door blades to see the diff.

    Cool car, congrats on the order. I like wagons for utility, but not sure if you can get S4 or S6 wagon in the U.S.

    Meteor gray and deep see blue are my favorites. I like the look of the LED lights against the darker colors.

    Daytona is not an option (unless its avail. as a $2500 special order and adds a month to the build) and neither is saddle/butterscotch leather.
    That sucks Audi must hate Americans, since you can't get any of the good options.

    It was, the trend at least in Europe, has hit it's peak and now people can't sell their white cars.

    Any thoughts on the alum-optic kit (i.e., the aluminum body blades to match the mirrors)? Both those and the 'supercharged' badges are port installed options... really considering adding both.

    1. the blades look like they actually belong on the car imo and I think they add some more sportyness to it;
    2. at first I thought the carbon fiber 'supercharged' badges were kind of ricerocket-ish but when the the stock ones are those that say 'V6T' , I almost prefer the supercharged carbon ones, not to mention they come stock on the S6.

    I prefer the "supercharged" badges as well. Too bad it looks like Audi isn't body color matching the blades on the S4 anymore, I always thought that was nice.

    IMO, I would roll no badges except the "rings" on the front and rear and body match the side blades. But that's just me, I like my cars to look sleeper.

    My S4 is in Phantom Black. If I could do it again, I'd get Sprint Blue.

    Red hasn't looked good on a German car, since this: [​IMG]

    Any particular reason?

    Get red, who doesn't love a red car?

    I like red, but the red the S4 comes in is an ugly flat red, almost looks orange in person. The TTS however comes in a Volcano Red which is quite nice but again, a $2500 option for the S4 and an extra months wait tacked on to the build time.

    Going to look at a Phantom Black today with the aluminum blades and a Meteor Gray, want to see both in person before making any changes.

    ...i am ordering an rs4 in black,.
    Keep dreaming. Last model year sold in US(B7 generation) was 2007 with many cars sitting on dealers lots for months and advertised on ebay for 10-12k off MSRP. If and when the new B8 generation RS4 is released I'd be surprised if it makes it way to the US.
    can get s6 wagon here.
    Not since 2003.
    Cool car, congrats on the order. I like wagons for utility, but not sure if you can get S4 or S6 wagon in the U.S.
    Last year you could get an S4 avant in US was 2008 (stick or auto). Last year for S6 avant was 2003. It's interesting that the only version of the S6 US brought to US back then was the avant. The only current Audi wagons available in US are the A4 (newer 2.0T engine with automatic only) and the A6 3.0 supercharged, which is actually pretty cool for a family car. AFAIK Audi, and BMW for that matter, are through, at least for the time being, trying (and mostly failing) in selling their high performance wagons here. Rest assured,we will get all possible variations of their SUVs [​IMG]. To the OP - get what you like. My preference is darker blues like the deep sea blue pearl.

    who cares about resale value. Get what you want.

    Nobody ever cares about resale value until you have to resell/trade an ugly-ass bastard and get hammered for choosing an unpopular color

    But while you had it, it was the shit right? Isn't that the point?
