    hi guys,

    im looking at ordering a new a3 soon and im wondering if anyone has any pics of volcano red or of brilliant red? buying in ireland and the volcano red is an €800 option, while brilliant red comes std.

    Just wondering how different they are in the flesh....tks in advance

    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:

    misano red is a awesome colour we had a 3door sline tdi in work a little while ago very nice in the flesh with goldy yellow met in the paint looks even better in the sun but there's nothing wrong with brilliant red all you red haters lol mine is very red and not pink in the least bit

    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

    it's nice, but not for me i'm afraid
