Have any of the red afficionados confirmed that the "tomato soup red" on the '07 Euro demonstrators is actually the metalic red that the U.S. '08s will get? I ask that knowing that the Canadian TDIs offered two reds through '06: "phat red" and "ruby red metallic." The phat red looks to me like the tomato red that has been noted, plus I wonder if smartUSA would take a chance with other than a real deep metallic red similar to the deep metallic blue. Might be worth checking out before "checking-out" on red.

Hmmm . . . good question. The demonstrator certainly wasn't metallic in any sense of the word. Since I've already ordered the Red Cabrio, maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised as the tomato flavor wasn't the red I would have preferred.

So its extra money to get the "metallic red" which in fact is more of a "tomato red"?! Weak :rolleyes:

I guess my avatar does kind of look orangish. Hmmm I may have to go with a black interior cause two dissimilar reds would clash.
