My new GTI was delivered last month. Gave it the first proper wash two weeks ago now. Since then she's had the windows tinted and OEM R tail lights installed.View attachment 182095View attachment 182096
This is a beautiful photo! I'm looking into a 2021 GTI and I was all set to get the Tornado Red when I saw the Cornflower Blue. Both are amazing. Two questions for you...1. Do you ever get tired of the red? It's a strong color and I'm worried I might regret it later, 2. Those wheels are amazing!!! What is the name of those wheels? Are the OEM VW Wheels or aftermarket. Please tell me!!

Those are OEM VW Brescia wheels, from the GTi Clubsport. My TR Golf is my first non white or silver car. I went to the dealer intending to buy reflex silver and they had the same spec car in TR... on a whim I brought it home, 4 years later and I have no complaints.

I know I'm supposed to get 17" but I love the bigger wheel. 19" is crazy. I'd be replacing tires every week. I've had 18" tires on 2 VW's and 2 Audi's and never had an issue. If it snows enough to get that deep I stay home!

There are many aftermarket companies that make replicas of this wheel and my other favorite...the Englishtowns/Speilburgs. Do you happen to know which aftermarket wheel companies are the best?

Red is the best, it's why I got a GTI! My other car is also red and I love them both.

As stated, those are factory Brescia wheels and I won't ever be changing them. Here in Australia the Polo GTI also gets an 18" version of them, so that might be a compromise, if you're able to get them.

People here like to choose "traditional" colors for their cars: black, white, silver; it's very boring to walk in the parking lot and find only these colors. When I bought mine 3 years ago I tried to break this car color scheme :D

Nice, where to? I just put a hitch on my car to take our cheap beach cruisers around but I want to get into some beginner trail riding.
