It's actually red, click on thru to see the full ad. But, this page makes it look brown. So if you are thinking of painting your car brown, check it out.

If you scroll down to the list of Featured Ads, you'll see a full set of pictures that show the car as red. It wasn't the fault of the photographer, rather it was a problem with ad it self.

The driver's door fit is as poor as a S4! I thought the series 3 cars were usually better in this respect. Otherwise, a nice tidy car.
