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

Good luck with your choice. 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 :icon_thumright:

Saw a Monza in dealership today.... Looks too 1990's Honda for us.

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

Red is an excellent colour. I’ve got 3 cars with it! 2 x Audi in Brilliant red and 1 x VW in Flash red.

I regularly give mines a good polish, wax and ceramic finish. Funny thing is when it’s a cracking day it changes to an orange colour. Hope u don’t mind me asking but have any of yous had the particular filter warning light come on? I was driving mines at the weekend and it came on but I was cruising on the bypass at 60. I stopped and phoned my mechanic mate and he said to give it a good battering. It went off 5 minutes later

Just purchased this last week. Moved from the 1.6 Leon tdi (which was a good car, 64 plate) to this 2 year older beaut.
Just seems a bit more grown up and the Volcano red really pops in the sun.
