    Mizano or Brillant...?

    Do you think it's worth paying the extra for Mizano or stick with Brilliant Red?

    I paid the extra for misano on my S3, and think it's worth every penny/cent/yen/rmb...

    Pictures do not do the color justice, the orange glow as well as the different tones really makes it stand out.



    Though you have to keep it clean. Note the difference between the bonnet and doors.

    100% I saw an A3 S-Line in it and it looked great. Last week I saw a brilliant red S3 and it looked pants.

    I have a Brilliant Red A3 and I think it looks - well - brilliant. That said my neighbour's A4 Avant S Line in Missano looks spectacular. (Although his wife prefers my colour!)

    After having both,the misano is easier to keep looking clean,brillant red needs more effort to keep it looking good,but I prefer the brilliant red if its clean.

    Depends on how much extra you'd be paying.

    Anything more than 500 (for a new car) and personally I dont think its worth it.

    I used to own a Mizano red A3 and loved it, yes I regret selling it however, since I'm looking to get back in an Audi I can't decide.
    Main features I'd be looking for is Mizano/Brillant Red S-line with Bose.

    I agree the Brillany red SB looks nice however I too like the Orange glow from the Mizano

    You can't beat Misano especially in the sunshine. It really gives the car presence. I saw my car on the forecourt and its the colour that drew me to it in the first place.

    Had the same choice, and after seeing them both, there was only one choice.

    Misano.
