The white stripes do not move me at all. In my opinion, the black looks better. Either black or stock.

I totally want to do my calipers in yellow. The only thing that's really stopping me is the fact that it would be a pain if I ever have to put the car back to stock.

^---- Looks great (would be PERFECT with color matched side markers). Plastidip or pinstripe tape?

If I saw only one stripe on an mk6 I would think, oh someone stole the top part that sucks. And don't do the stripe on the headlight, really dumb idea vw.

Im working on an all black/white scheme on mine. Whered you find the black center caps for your wheels? Also, are those the Watkins Glen wheels powder coated?

Hey man, whered you get your black center caps for your wheels? Also, are those the Watkins Glenn wheels powder coated? Have you painted your calipers black?

I recently purchased a 14 candy white 4 door and Im going to go with a black/white color scheme. Ive removed all badges with plans to powder coat my Watkins glen wheels, black or white center caps, tint/paint the bumper reflectors black, new black tail lights, black side mirror covers, white emblem inlay on the back. After all that Ill probably paint the calipers.
as well.

Im looking to start cheap with center caps and the things I can paint, but I want to make sure I get the correct center caps.

Those are actually just the stock center caps that came on my Detroit wheels.

And no, those were VMR V710's in factory matte black. I didn't ever end up painting my calipers - they were always red.

I thought of painting those strips yellow. Actually there are 2 things I wanted to do - 1) sticking some yellow film onto my headlights to match foglights, 2) painting my grille strips yellow.

I am still not sure about the badge, so I did two versions of design (for now, only in paint, haha).
The original pic was taken from here (see the 3rd row, in the middle - https://www.carid.com/gallery/volkswagen/), that's not my Golf.
So, need your opinions, please.
