I've been to the dealer 5 times (3 diff ones) and still can't decide but I started considering CSG more after looking at one today. Also test drove one for the second time today, keeping an eye/ear out for these common noises that people are hearing. I never heard any of them during the entire test drive. Overall a positive experience which solidified my decision to buy one

my favorite is the deep black murdered out! Candy white is also nice with the roof painted black and if you see a deep black metallic in person you'll sh*t your pants lol

Get a candy white... It looks amazing and everyone on the road notices you and seems to give respect to the awsome GTI.

I think I know which will be the most popular, but just curious to see how this turns out
You forgot shadow blue metalic -- available but not yet on the VW america website.

I'm a candy white guy myself. Tornado red second. The other colors are too dark for me.

I like the shadow blue but not sure its a "GTI" color if you know what I mean

I see a base Golf when I see that color

I voted Carbon Steel, but still like the CW and black. I don't like red and gray does nothing for me. I am anxious to see the shadow blue in person (looks good in the pic above), and it looks like Jim Ellis in Atlanta has the only one within 400 miles of here, so I will have to check it out!

darker colors look better, and are nicer, but lighter colors are easier to keep clean (well they do not show dirt as bad)

According to their website they do: http://www.jimellisvwatlanta.com/new...&SBprice=clear

But I would check before you drive there, that CW '09 4-door still listed was dealer traded last March!

White is perhaps the best for driving safety as it shows up well on the street in inclement wx and at night. Carbon Steel Gray is a nice new color with green flakes in it BUT it isn't really gray- it's very close to black and hard to keep clean.
Probably the most iconic color for the GTI is United Gray, which isn't gray at all IMO- it's really a medium silver and looks fantastic when the sun shines on it. Hides the dirt pretty well, to0. All German cars seem to look better in silver shades.

Think I voted white, but didn't have balls to buy it. Went with Graphite Blue instead. Love it!
