My Night Blue GTI

Love that it looks different colors depending on the light conditions. Sometimes purple-ish in (bright light), dark navy, or even black (in low light).

What's up fellas,

new owner of a mk7.5 SE. I'll get my pic up in a minute. She's bone stock for now, but I'm thinking of wheels/tires when I get my tax refund.

a VERY intelligent use of tax return money. lightweight wheels + real rubber is one of the biggest changes you can make to the car.

What do you think Konig Ampliforms? I'm trying not to go crazy. Found some VW Pretorias too

Definitely do the Ampliforms. Pretorias are great wheels, but they're very prone to bending, and still weigh >20 lbs, whereas the konigs are like 18, and with a better offset AND more width to boot.

Here's some real life pics of ampliforms on mk7s:

I love this color for that same reason as well

lol have you seen the Shadow Blue from the MK6? I honestly regret going NB on my MK7 cause it really doesn't hold a candle to SB. Shadow Blue was wayyyy more color changing than Night Blue. NB is honestly just a metallic dark blue, nothing to write home about. SB was a true pearlescent/color changing dark blue with serious purple hues in it depending on the light.

but maybe that's just like, my opinion bro.

I go back and forth with colors. I originally really wanted a carbon steel gray, settled for a deep black pearl. Then the deep black pearl really started growing on me and I felt I had ended up with the best choice. Lately, I've really been digging the night blue metallic, wishing I had gotten that color instead.

NBM + bronze wheels = ???

^ that's the best combo. It does require the right shade of bronze tho. Btw.. as u already know, your car is indeed ubersick!

I like my gunmetal finish - more OEM like. I also dig my black winter setup. Heck, i even dig oem Austins on my 2dr.
