I would buy black, thats my .02

I just bought a 01 GTI Black. Its getting buffed this Saturday. Then hopefully will get pics up here.

If you always want to clean your car, buy black.lol. I love Black cars. Also I love to clean my car, so I can't bitch about it.


White is the easiest color to clean.

Depends on the shade of Blue, but that can look good and be easy to clean, or can be a bitch to clean.



Just my .02 Good luck picking a color.
Please post pics when you decide on a color and purchase the car.

I have a galactic blue jetta and i love the color. As he just said, any dark color car will be a PITA to keep clean but its kind of like saying that you don't want to win the lottery because of the taxes.

Well I have black, and when it clean, I love it, but it's soo hard to keep clean, expecially in the winter. Also, you will see every little knick and scratch you get. With white you will see all the dirt, I would go with the blue if I were you. That's what I wish I had. Not a big silver fan to tell you the truth...

i have black too...real nice except after it gets dirty, especially right now w/pollen (tho if you squint a bit, the pollen makes it a sort of brown-green-black carbon fiber-y look. i'll leave it up to you to decide whether that's a good thing or no.)

Ok, as evidenced by this thread... ANYTHING but black.. there are too many Black dubs around anymore, and silver is right up there with it. I like both of the blues they offer, and white is fairly uncommon on european cars in general, so I think either of those would be fine.

Now, to all the BDC(BlackDubClub): Flame on!

everyone has black and blue, go with white or red because if you mod them they will stand out more.

I currently own 2 silver cars. My wife is tired of silver. I love my silver Bora.

She wants something in Galactic Blue (I like that color a lot, but think the Lagoon is killer too).

However my next set of wheels will be German Battleship Grey.

From what I can tell you... Blue Lagoon (TheBoraDJ's Color) was replaced by the Grey Color. (which looks sick) So now you can only get Raf's Galactic Blue.

I am pretty sure that is the case for 2003.

I read both US and Canadian brochures.

let's not neglect the aftermarket paints that change color w/light and angle! sure they're ridiculously expensive, but i remember when i saw a lambo outside the surf city hotel that had it...needless to say, real hot car, even tho i know it's pretty hot no matter what color

what do you mean aftermarket paint?

so the pictures i put up aren't galactic blue?
<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

Some aftermarket paints are specialized in that they reflect a different color depending on what angle you are looking at. That is a completely different subject though. YES, the pics you posted are galactic blue. MY pics just look dark cuz they were taken in a shadow.
