I'm still on CW. This car will most likely be parked outside for the majority of its life, and white will hold up the best IMO. It just seems to be the sportiest and classiest simultaneously of all the colors. Plus like I said before, its a small car... and white makes it look a bit bigger, without being bigger. The chrome accents and wheels seem to *pop* on a clean white as well...

I like Black and CW equally. Told the dealer to find whichever he could.

I'm finding now that with all this salt on the road it's hell to keep it looking fresh. But I've always wanted a black car, so no regrets.

As soon as I get my money right I'll be putting Black OZ rims on it. (also a 3M tint at 20%) Should look pretty damn fantastic.

I've always liked the clean simple look of white cars. My GTI will be white, unless I come across an awesome deal on another colored car that I can't refuse. I think the white looks great contrasting with the red stripes and red brake calipers.

I'm gonna have to get white. One of my main concerns is how the looks of the paint will hold up over the years of sitting outside. White will hide any blemishes and swirl marks from washing the best. Black and Carbon look great when they're new/clean but I used to work in the car business for a long time doing detailing, and those dark ones show all kinds of swirls and blemishes. Red is not too bad, but I've had one for 11 years now (sig)

Reflex Silver is my favorite. Pic below would be even better if it was a 3-door with xenons and sunroof. Can't wait to get my car in April

Reflex Silver is also my favourite colour. I always choose metallic silver here in the UK, with its filthy winter weather and sometimes dodgy summer weather as well. Pointless having dark colours, smart as they may look in the showroom.
Here is a photo taken shortly after taking delivery last July.

I need something bright and eye catching, that's why im going with Tornado Red on my preference. CW and CSG are the colors i was going for, but I've had white already on my past cars, CSG is nice, but looks very dim and dark. but for other owners that have CSG or CW awesome man...*thumbs up*
