Graphite Blue where you at?

I've searched long and hard but could not find a thread dedicated to Graphite Blue owners. Im pretty sure theres a few of you out there. To get the ball rolling, here's a shot of my GB . Im also looking to add on rims. Thoughts?

There isn't a dedicated GB thread as you said since not many people have GB cars especially GTI's for that matter. I had the choice of getting GB but found it to be more Graphite than Blue so I settled for SB. I do appreciate the rarity though.

Thanks! Did not go for the full kit - only the spoiler, side skirts, rear bumper and diffuser on. Though i would advise ordering the rear diffuser WITH the rear bumper. I made a mistake of ordering the rear diffuser ONLY which does not fit the stock GTI rear bumper.

Yeah, these are only 16's so I'm hoping a bigger summer wheel would make it look better. These pictures really do emphasize the gap haha

Pic of mine with the 17" Seattle alloys and the factory sport suspension.
Btw, graphite blue pearl apparentely is different from the metallic. In Europe we only have the pearl effect.

In Canada its called pearl, but in the U.S. its called metallic ... I'm assuming its just a different naming convention.

Also ... I love how you take over that side walk

Oh, so it's just a naming strategy.
This summer i will probably go with the H&R SS and maybe some spacers (5mm for the front, 10mm for the back) or I'm thinking of swapping the Seattles' for some 17" Goals', going from 7to 7.5 and from ET54 to 51.
