    2015 4.2 Brilliant Red or Nardo Grey

    All, I need some much needed advice on which car to buy. I am presently entertaining the following. Both are the same price and I'm torn. What are your thoughts?

    Brilliant Red Manual
    18k Miles
    Loaded but no B&W
    No Carbon Fiber
    Black Leather/Alcantera Seats
    Asking price is $95K

    Nardo Grey Manual
    21k Miles
    Loaded but no Nav/Backup Camera
    Carbon Fiber ****pit and Engine Bay
    Black Diamond Stitch Leather

    * If I went with the Brilliant Red, I would want the black stitch leather and carbon fiber in the future.

    Thank you.

    Brilliant Red ...that is because red adds extra power...right Howie?

    On a serious note, I would get the one with the color you like most. I had the opportunity to get a black one with full carbon fiber (second fav color on a R8) but couldn't pull the trigger as I had my heart set on a red one.

    Is this the red one you are looking at? This one is in Oregon. Looks nice.

    Is the red one a facelift model?

    Just a heads up. There were only 6 red manual V8 R8's made in 2015.

    The red car may have been owned by a physician/forum member from Washington State.
    I’m sure his car had Alcantera seating surfaces.
    Btw the red car has 18,000 miles

    I think you are right. I also noticed the red R8 is a certified pre owned Audi with a one year Audi warranty.

    Edit...you are right Larry. It's from battle creek, WA according to the Carfax and that physician is from there.

    That is the one I would buy. Certified by Audi means a lot.

    Another biased Red owner here saying do it ;-). That said, I had a Nardo RS3 prior to my R8 and it’s a slick color as well.

    I’m going to do the carbon fiber interior on mine; next week actually. Check the vendor classifieds...you can get the complete set for a reasonable price.

    Do nardo
    Its a crazy color
    Mileage is worth nothing as the gap closes as you own it
    Audi cpo means nothing, you will likely get extended warranty anyway

    Nav is worthless
    Backup camera/sensors are worth something and i dont know how much it costs to retrofit a camera
