Picked up a Q5 TDI (3.0L TDI) Phantom Black Pearl Effect, black leather, with MMI a couple week ago. Awesome power, and the MPG's have been outstanding so far - although limited miles at this point.

Thanks for the warm welcome, I'm looking forward to learning a lot from this forum and the forum members.

Daytona - I'll post some pics in the next couple days - I'm embarrassed to say I need to take some shots worthy of sharing - you know - beside the occasional iphone picture.

Here's some pictures of my 2014 Phantom Black Pearl TDI. You'll note that in direct sunlight it almost looks deep blue to the camera, I was using a polarized filter, which may have skewed the color a bit - it doesn't look dark blue at all to the naked eye. In not direct sunlight it looks deep black. One of the pictures I tried to get a shot of what the paint looks like up close in the direct sunlight - you'll see flecks of blue, green, yellow, and pink. If you're not in the direct, bright sun you don't see them at all.

Inside is listed as "black" but it's really more of a dark grey to my eye. My wife has a A3 TDI and she has a black leather interior.

Wood trim is Ash.

Hope ya'll like it:

Great pics! Especially like the one showing the flecks in the paint.

Additionally I'm with you on the leather - have always thought it's dark grey...

Thanks very much guys...

Retbug - I noticed in your sig you list "LED interior light pack" - is that aftermarket, or an Audi option? I had LEDs in my last vehicle interior and miss them in my Q5.

Hi,

This is an Audi option for UK spec -

Interior light package. Includes front footwell lighting, active door reflectors, illuminated vanity mirrors, rear reading lights, entrance lights and illuminated glove compartment, vents and internal door controls

Well worth the money
