far and far different...ardent is a non-mettalic red. Chili has a gold flake metallic tint.

looks fairly ardent to me, but i've got bordeaux red pearl, which may be skewing my pallette.

It looks ardent to me, but it may have a bit of orange in it. Hard to tell in the pics. I bought it today and will have it by wednesday. I can always get it painted. It would be nice if it is ardent red. Thanks for your input.

Ardent is pretty solid red, no metallic flakes.

Chili red is gorgeous, with a very brilliant color from the gold flakes and you will not mistake it for Ardent. I think they only offered it for 2007, no?
Chili red was offered in 2006 too. Lifestyle paint option.

Just received the top today. It is in perfect shape and the color matches my car perfectly. Every part was there and then some like a tow hook, and the wheel lug key. The thing looks brand new. Freeking awesome deal. :nanner:

I'm still pretty new here and hadn't seen this color before. I agree it looks sweet. Almost like having two colors in one car.
