Audi A6/E350 4-mATIC
White or Black ... Pics please

Good Morning,

IM about to get a new E350 4-matic i was thinking about getting a 5 series but the price on the MB is just 2 good for me to walk away from. Im having a VERY hard time picking between white and black exterior on my pano-installed car. I find that white sometimes looks very girl like. Can someone please post ipics of a white e-class with pano and some tints (i dont want 2 go 2 crazy on tints, im a freshly minted attorney and rolling up to work in a blacked out white e-class doesnt really convey the conservative image the firm is looking for, hahaha)

I believe any luxury car looks better in white because it shows every line, and speaking about showing up to work in a proper car i remember my parents lawyer showed up once in a Lambo diablo lol

If you think your car is going to set precident for your ability to do work and be respected for it then you are in the wrong league and will suffer heart problems if you stay there too much longer. Man talk about putting stress upon yourself. My best friend in Boston has a thriving law practice living in a million dollar plus house near the water and drives an old Suburban she pulls her old boat with. Do you really think that is having a negative effect on her ability to attract the right crowd???

Agreed. I bought White specifically because it showed the cars "lines" the best. Hands down!!! Go to a dealership and look at all the colors and if your looking to highlight the detail of the body it's a no brainer. With that said every other color they offer has there own upside as well. Good Luck.

Well this is kind of that "Blacked Out White E-Class" you're trying to avoid, but....



(before the rear wing)




It's all preference.

I think a lot of people are flocking to White right now, and of course, Black is always gonna be a prominent color. Black isn't my personal taste, but people who love it, LOVE it.

I'd advise to check out different colors. The more "rare" a color you equip your car with, the more individual the car will be, for whatever it's worth.

Silver or White were my choices initially. Although some of the dark gray colors look cool on the E.

I prefer a darker color scheme for the 212 because it hides those "lines" the best!

Go check it out in person and decide on your own or take a look at the official 212 Picture! official-w212-e-class-picture-thread.
