Titanium silver with light gray or mulberry(if its still available) for the following reasons:

1. It gets hot in LA and being a previous owner of a blk/blk, I'd go with lighter colors. I have an Artic silver with it.

2. Dark colors are prone to swirl marks and they're harder to keep clean..ever try to keep a black car clean? And in LA, where the water is pretty hard, water spots are more conspicuos.

3. Ever see a silver colored car (either Audi's silver, MBZ'z brilliant silver or BMW'stitanium silver) on a sunny day? Combine it with a set of wheels like M-Contour, and the car would look like it was carved out right of a piece of stainless steel. Put a set of clear blinkers in front in place of the OEM ambers, and you've got one good looking car.

My other choice would be Estoril Blue with grey. This is one good looking blue and very unique too.

Just my 2 cents.
