2002 S6 red - what colour code??? pic added

Just bought it and theres a couple of areas that need a touch, so i need a touch up kit for a few chips

I've looked on the sticker in the spare wheel well and its blank next to the interior trim codes, same with the service book

its a solid bright red am i to assume its tornado red?

Not sure of the code,  but looks like Laser Red.

OK cheers, i have just called an Audi dealers and given the reg no and it not even on their system, he is emailing Audi to find out, but seems to think if its not on the system or in the boo it might be a special colour - great... thats going to be fun to match then

Ironically, when I saw it, I thought 'Bright Red'. That's an Audi colour.  It's also one of the few flat Red's from that era also.

Google it (Audi bright red) and look under images. It looks the same as your car to me, see what you think.

googled it and yes they all look bright red, but then theres even a misano red B5 RS4 that comes up too, and I'm sure its not that.

Misano is a metallic Pearl so definitely not that.

Brilliant Red is paint code LY3J. It's that I was thinking of, not bright red.

hopefully audi will come back to me tomorrow as they said and let me know so i can order some paint

i must be going blind, had a call from Audi today they checked the car on some main register (Audi UK?) and its come back as Misano Red, and i say i must be blind as if you look close there is indeed something in the paint - so not solid red as i first thought, you do have to look pretty close in my defence (and I'm off to specsavers again)
