I would have gone with Reflex Silver if I could, united grey is too "in between" for my tastes - so CSG it was!

Big problem with CW is that rail dust will show up like crazy - lots of little "rust" spots. Yuck.

My CSG looks almost black at night, in full sunshine (which we've had very little of since I got the car a week ago, sadly), it's perfect - metal flake ftw! Just hope I never have to repaint anything!

Ok so I'm down to white or black. I like them equally, but I must decide on just ONE of them naturally. White is easier to care for and makes the car look slightly bigger, but black looks richer (not $ richer). Any other input to help me tip the scales? A couple excellent examples:

I would recommend Carbon Steel it is classy but i may be bias as that is what i am getting but if the option was out there i would have Sonic Blue but that is not an option.

The best color, Shadow Blue Metallic, isn't even an option.

I wasn't even aware of that color when I started this thread back when. I like it ok but I'm down to black and white now.

It's available now. VW even finally updated their site to show it as an option for the GTI. I was excited about this color at first, but now I think Laser Blue would be better.

I dug up this thread to see how many people buy Blue because I don't dig dark Blue cars. It isn't even a choice.. wow.
