    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

    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 :icon_thumright:

    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
