What exterior colour looks best for the red/black Milano leather seat interior ?
I am thinking either Shiraz Red or Ice Silver exterior without the contrast.
On most pictures and videos the red leather interior is a really nice bordeaux colour but the small leather sample that I viewed at a dealer was a lot more pale and bright red. Can anybody confirm this please ?

Also are the heated mirrors worth getting ?

The heated mirrors are definitely worth getting. You'll be surprised how often you want to switch them on to get rid of condensation/frost/rain water. The other advantage is that they fold close to the body of the car (much closer than the A3 I had), which is great if you're paranoid about damage from passing cyclists or pedestrians, or anyone else who doesn't bother to look where they're going :)

Silver, glacier white or black for that interior IMO, although most people choose the exterior colour first ;)

If I was getting red/black milano I'd go for a Black/Glacier White exterior.

If I could have anything I wanted I'd get a sphere blue exterior with black leather.

+1 on Glacier or Black.

Red/black leather is not available on S-Line though! :(

Red + white and Red + black always looks great - either of those i'd say! Maybe even Daytona

Thank you all for the style advices. After reviewing some forum pictures with the Glacier White exterior; yes it looks awesome. I will visit a dealer later this week to look for this 2012 colour in combination with the red/black interior.

Guess the Glacier White will suppress minor scratches better than the Shiraz Red.

If you are going for a Sport... I would say Glacier and Black/Red leather will look awesome!
