Geoff, shadow blue without a doubt... it's an awesome colour and won't get lost amongst all the silver regular Golfs...

Shadow blue, you know you want to :grin:

Neither....but I realise that's not very helpful :) My vote goes with the blue. Sorry, but reflex silver is just so boring.

They're both great colours but it would be silver for me. It seems to suit the lines of the car better and compliments those wheels and rear lights. I agree it doesn't exactly stand out but it does look very classy IMO. Silver's also low maintenance - it looks clean even when it's dirty. I realise I haven't exactly helped - three replies and three differing opinions!

Agree with everything Timski said, although I don't think he voted as I voted silver and it only has one vote so far!

I voted silver and I don't like silver cars. Reason stated in the other thread.

Surprised you're going for the 18's Geoff. You've always given me the impression your totally against them for the past four years due to local rutted roads and corrosion. You'd be doing the right thing speccing them of course :grin:

I might not yet lol. I actually prefer the monza II to the Monza Shadow they to me look more classy less halfords. Im even questioning my choice of xenons now too as the standard lamps are suppose to be very good, I simply like the look of the xenons and don't like the look of the DRL on the halogens but complexity(they move so maybe less reliable in years to come (keeping it over 10 years i hope)) as well as there cost is making me question my choice.

And i thought it was suppose to be women who could not make there mind up, at least i know i want a 5door lol.

That blue looks really dull and boring, I know most people say that about silver, but the silver looks very nice, just because it's popular, doesn't make it boring.

So to sum up, I'd choose the silver from those two colours.

Oh, and those wheels on the blue one looks pants.

I just picked up a reflex silver pirelli edition , after having traded in a tornado red, and I'm very happy with the color.

I have a fully loaded GTI 6 in Reflex Silver, Shadow blue does not age very well and shows fine scratches alot.

I would go with silver unless you are a hardcore detailing nut!

I agree with that. Blue graphite Pearl was the same on th MKV. Superb when clean and polished but looked much older and dull when covered in swirls from auto car washes etc.

I voted for Reflex Silver as it is also my favourite colour for the GTI. The blue looks purple, and a bit '1995' for my tastes (if that makes sense!). Silver is timeless, and easy to maintain. I think in 10 years' time the silver car will look better.
