I almost got dark blue with red on my S5 a couple years ago but went with black exterior instead. I think the imperial blue would look good with the red, but I think it would get old, be kind of a novelty. Even with the black S5, I eventually wished I had gone with audi's light gray interior instead. The red looked damn good, but, for me, the novelty just wore off. Personally, I think that would happen even more so against blue paint.

It's obviously a completely subjective thing though.... In time, I'm sure you'll find someone with this combo that can provide pics. Would be a pretty rare combo though.

I have Imperial Blue with Oyster interior; looks fabulous. If I'd gotten Sport Line, I would have gotten Everest Gray with an Imperial Blue exterior.

I was actually seriously considering this color combo and my dealer happened to have an Imperial Blue w/ Coral Red on their lot. In person, the blue (in sunlight) is actually too bright with the red seats. It looks very "Superman" and clashes. If the tint was darker like the past generations Deep Sea Blue I would say go for it. I ended up picking Black and the contrast is STUNNING. You won't be disappointed.

Best of luck!

Ryan

Deep Sea Blue is lighter than Imperial Blue by a good margin.

Who knows. I'm just stating what I saw in person. Imperial looked a lot darker than the E93 in Deep Sea Blue they had right next to it.

Imperial Blue is very dark; in certain light, nearly indistinguishable from black. If a lighter blue, but not as light as Liquid Blue, had been available, I would have gotten it. However, I'm very happy with my car as it is.
