Question Best color?

I'm having a very hard time deciding on a color, so thought I would start a poll.

I think I know which will be the most popular, but just curious to see how this turns out

I like Black. Out of all the GTI's in my area I am the only one. When I say all GTI's I mean not just MKVI but earlier versions, they all seem to be some grey. White is good too.

The best color is the one that most appeals to you. Although, I will say that white is not only boring and IMHO, the color of an old man's car

Black looks amazing....its just really hard to clean. I like the way white looks cause it brings contrast to the red stripes and the lines of the car. Plus its easier to keep clean.

The black is a stealth bomber while white has the highest contrast.
Thats my opinion. I don't regret getting black.

I first wanted white with gun metal wheels.

Then I wanted Carbon Steel because it was new.

I got black because:
"Black is my color. I have no other. Nothing else will do.
I've got a black car, black bed, black TV.
I've even got a silk black suit."

White, red, and carbon all appeal to me in their own way, which is why I can't decide. White makes a small car look bigger, red is sportiest, carbon is most sophisticated.... DECISIONS!!

I'm surprised everyone is jumping off that candy white bandwagon. Although from pictures the gray looks fantastic I can personally attest that candy white sparkles all the time in sunlight. Also it looks less dirty from a distance which is always a plus.


One thing however is I notice is gets dirty like a day after I clean it

Love the car, love the color, love the dub life.

Hmm very interesting. I thought CW would be way ahead but its not. No surprise on the red... Leaning toward CW or CGM, but that's just for today

You have to see them in person, in order to really decide which you like best. Personally, I like the white.
