Love GFG but yeah when it's dirty I feel like it's got enormous 90s Ford Taurus energy lol

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA AMAZING. This hits so hard, my best friend had a 93 green Taurus and we called it the Mothership Dick

You've described why I hate Great Falls Green. It just reminds me of 90's Ford's. I think it looks horrible on GTI's. Not to mention every single person who has a GFG GTI just slaps some bronze wheels on them and calls it a day.

Sorry GFG bros :(

Sorry you feel that way. Sure - in the hyper-nichey world of VW enthusiasts, everyone who goes GFG gets bronze wheels. But outside the super-nichey world of VW, you see maybe one of these cars a month, likely less, out on the streets. And I live in a city, where there’s an unusually high concentration of VW owners. And I could count on two hands how many GFG cars I’ve ~ever~ seen.

And I’ll even concede more:

not only did I just slap bronze wheels on, I slapped what are arguably the individually most popular aftermarket wheel for the platform, the RSE-10. And I’m a hipster type who normally avoids doing what other people do, on principle.

it still is, to me, one of the best looking cars on the road.

Replaced the non-HomeLink OEM mirror with the HomeLink version. 10 minute job. At least half of that getting the plastic trim piece off that surrounds the mount.

True plug and play assuming your original mirror is auto dimming. I was afraid of getting the new one seated properly but it went in on the second or third try. I’m listing the original mirror in the classifieds if anyone is interested.

Installed the Aerofabb V2 lip. Replaced the Maxton V2 hoping to get some more ground clearance.

Smith VW did a pretty cool GFG build, replacing all the red accents with gold. It's not bronze like all the others, and it's clean and well-done. Maybe you'd like that a bit more?? Or maybe you just hate GFG. That's cool. Everyone has their own pallet.

I dig the GFG myself...I'd like to see one with black rims though. While the gold and bronze work well, I think black rims would set it off.

That's funny, I've been back and forth over scooping a set of Black or Silver Pretoria's. Ultimately I'd likely go Silver, as I am generally not big on black anything (wheels, body paint, interior). But I agree - I think black Pretoria's would look KILLER on a GFG Alltrack.

Yes they would! I would love to get a set of black ones for my GTI (or any black rims for that matter).

eh I’ll depart from you on the “or any black rims for that matter” part lol. Only some black wheels look good. They have to have an easily discernible spoke design, otherwise you just “lose” the wheels in the wheel wells. Personal opinion, of course...

All of which is totally fine. That's the best thing about opinions, everyone has their own. And what your car looks like doesn't impact me one single bit. As long as you like the way it looks, that's all the matters, and I'm happy 😊
