    I presume you mean garnet red? Mine is still a standard s-line, though not for much longer hopefully

    These pictures don't do the car or the colour justice, but they're the only ones I have sorry

    Top marks if you know what it refers too! ;)

    I find garnet red always looks like a grandad colour when photographed, but I love it in the flesh

    I thought the dark red colour is called volcano red? I saw one today on the road and quite liked it.

    I think volcano red replaced garnet red as a colour option (not sure of the year). They look similar though

    Some more of my old 2.0T quattro. It was a lovely spec with Vienna leather, Bose, xenons, auto lights / wipers (miss them badly!) and roof rails. Bought it with 9k on the clock at 2.5 years old and sold it with on 23k (for my S3) at 4.5 years old. The next buyer really did get a minter.
