i have a bad feeling a color war is about to erupt.....but, go with united grey

If you don't mind stressing over every little ding and scratch on the car, go with black. It looks best (than the other colors) when clean. However, white and grey will almost always look clean.

it depends on u........if you wanna r a fan of cleaning then BMP or TR would be a very good choice. Candy White & Reflex Silver r awesome 2 if your not much into cleaning then go for those.
10-31-2006, 02:38 PM
imo, candy white looks the best with kits.. but downside is keeping it clean. UG 4dr is the most common. (not sure if you're in GTA or not)..
On the other hand I've yet to see one of the other UG 4drs around TO (haven't been to a meet yet).. heck I've still only seen maybe 4-5 GTIs total other than myself since late aug.

Grey is the happy medium between black and white. And grey is NOT the most common btw. Either black, white or red are. Silver is the rarest. At least around here...
There were no 4 dr GTI's at FixxFest. I thought that was odd.

if you cant get my SHADOW BLUE :wink:,,,,,jetta's and rabbits come with shadow blue in us-canada cant you ask them to put their paint on your car?
if not,,,just like sadd3j said : pic the candy white,,,looks sooo goood with bodykits..
all colors look great on GTI's,,,but unfortunately the ones you dont get in US-canada are the best,,,(laser blue,blue graphite,shadow blue) only my opinion guys
11-01-2006, 09:50 AM
LASER BLUE ftw!
Go with Candy White. It's awesomest.
11-01-2006, 10:00 AM
CW is the best choice obviously :wink:

Mmmmm okay then so we have now officially knocked TR out and we are now left with
well 5 door

Candy White ( Looks gud with body kits i agree) (Very clean colour no doubt)
Black ( i tink loks like shit with body kits but if jus lowered with rims and stock skirts painted to match body luks amazing) (hard to keep clean)
Blue graphite is the sexiest but cant get it lol
silver is very uncommon but everyother car is fuckin silver so out the question lol
red is knocked out
grey is very common amongst all cars

We've got standardised grammar and spelling for a reason, mmkay? Good spelling makes the world happy and usually only requires two or three keystrokes more.
Plus, civility is always pleasant.
Have a nice day now :wink:
Oh, and I don't think you can get beige in North America. Might be wrong though.
11-04-2006, 01:13 PM
lol alright im sorry for my grammar, that something very easy to change, im just used to short strokes due to msn and text messaging all the time. but ye thanks for the input on the biege who knows if i will be able to get a hold of that interior colour but i have talked to one dealer and they said they havent been able to get any request for interior made in a custom order so i dont believe i will be able to get that interior aswell

Mine is Black Magic Pearl, but I´f I had a GTI, I would choose Candy White.
11-04-2006, 05:34 PM
im warning you.. do not go with the white. In my experience (in texas) the thing is impossible to keep decently clean for more than 4 days. too bad I didnt have a choice on color when I got mine...
11-04-2006, 06:29 PM
i say go with reflex silver.
(just my opinion) probably a little biased.
i didnt want to get black or white b/c its is harder to keep clean,
red is a little flashy for me,
although all the colors look great
i went in the middle for reflex siver, and it looks great with the votex kit!
11-05-2006, 09:08 AM
its like this if you got time on your hands black and white would look amazing, if you dont, dont bother because it will look bad if not washed every week, grey and silver are easier to maintain, the dirt is not as noticable, red is a excellent color if you like attention because it catches your eyes so quick...i have BMP and i would tell you GET CW but you have to get the VOTEX kit and clean it often or get UG with the VOTEX kit and you can live longer w/o washing the car...hope this helps, i am very non-biased because it wont help you if i tell you what my favorite color is
11-05-2006, 10:27 AM
i have a bad feeling a color war is about to erupt.....but, go with united grey
United gray is such a beautiful color :wink:
11-05-2006, 11:16 AM
United Gray was the color I wanted, but they didnt have one available with what I wanted so i went with BMP. Now that i get to see BMP everyday..it was an excelent choice. I love the way it sparkles in the sun.
11-05-2006, 01:40 PM
11-05-2006, 05:30 PM
imo the 4drs look better in dark colors where as the 2 doors look better in lighter colors
so my vote is black
11-05-2006, 10:27 PM
i was told united grey due to the red line in the grill which seems to get more character
