LED Taillight Advice

I have a candy white Golf with rims painted gloss black, I am planning on getting the roof vinyl wrapped gloss black as well. I am want to buy a set of DEPO LED tails but I keep going back forth between the colors. What do you guys think should I go cherry, dark cherry or black cherry? While I'm at it can anyone tell me the difference between the "euro" and "US" versions. Thanks!

best bet would be to google some pics of the different styles on CW golfs to see what you like. Not sure on the US and Euro differences.

I think the only difference between euro and US is the fog light. Euro will get a dimmer reverse bulb on the driver side. Mine aren't depo, but the fog light was pretty much pink and useless. I ended up replacing both the reverse lights with leds from deautokey.

I had a the same color combination on my GTI and the dark cherry looked great. Pics for reference:




Also, you probably want the US version, which has a reverse bulb on each side. The Euro versions have a rear fog on one side in place of a reverse light, which I don't find very useful here.
