    i've never even heard of volcano red

    brilliant red looks a little pink for my liking. if you can get a pearlescent colour i'd definitely recommend it

    best of luck with your purchase

    ok just looked in the brochure - i think volcano red must be what replaced garnet red. it's more of a marooney colour, whereas brilliant red is "manchester united" red. (i hate using that analogy - i'm a leeds united fan lol.)

    tbh between the two i'd go for brilliant red, but if you're ordering an S-Line i'd definitely go for Misano red instead

    It's in the brochure and www. but not seen one.

    Good luck with your choice. Try this link to a TT in Volcano

    Google Image Result for http://www.northeastaudi.co.uk/images/NJ60UOV_3.jpg



    For us (and I assume Sub ) Phantom Black is the colour of choice for an A/S3 and most other Audis too.

    if i had the choice of a factory order S-Line i'd definitely be getting Monza Silver - otherwise you're right, Phantom Black all the way

    i have NOTHING at all against red. i think some of the best cars on here are red

    i've only ever examined one Brilliant Red the paint looked flat and a bit pink - yours is obviously better kept lol

    That tt looks top in that colour, but found a pic of an A3 in volcano red- not sure

    Used Audi A3 Special Editions 1.6 Technik SE 5dr for Sale from Birmingham Audi (Ref: 83321)

    Mine is misano red metallic or pearlescent. It needs to be very clean and sunny to see the metallic effect though, not like normal metallic. Doesn't seem to shine like other metallics
