I think that red would look pretty clean on candy white.

really hard to say no to the reds... if i went bronze i'd recommend a different deeper shade personally. but if you go red i feel like the car kind of needs to be built to back it up for some reason haha

He's saying if you were to go bronze that you'd need to add other bronze accents to match the rims.

Idk. Not a huge fan of any of the colors lolol. I'd powder coat some wheels white.

I'd refinish the wheels in the same color they are. Your car looks great, such a clean look.

I seem to be in the minority for this forum, but one of the most appealing things about the GTI (to me) is it's subtle styling. Colorful wheels, spoiler extensions, etc. ruin that for me. I think the GTI looks best with subtle, simple stylings. If you want a fun, fast, flashy car, get a WRX.
