Not a car but happened upon a nearly matching accessory; this track jacket is almost spot on for the great falls color scheme. I got myself one ��

While I really, honestly, DO admire the effort...

Just get new wheels man. You've got one of the most beautiful cars on the road.

If I were you, I'd look at the 19X8.5 Bronze HREs in the Wheel/Tire classifieds. Will really round out an already incredible, spectacular car.

This is before wheels, and coilovers were installed but this color is definitely a love or hate thing. You either love it like crazy, or hate it with a passion. I like different, so after half signing the paperwork for a white silver mk7.5, i changed my mind to the NFG. I couldnt be happier. This color, especially when taken care of, pops in the sun like crazy. I will upload a picture of it again shortly, with the wheels and coilovers installed.

I had seen a couple of green Audis running around and loved the color, so I wanted to get my GTI in green. However, the VW green isn't the same as the Audi and I didn't like it nearly as much. And the green car the dealer's website said they had wasn't available. I got a white one...

We don’t have this colour up in Canada, or at least I don’t believe so. Haven’t seen one on the roads. Looks like it can change shades depending on lighting. Unique for sure.

Yep, it does flops and its a very deep metallic so the sun really makes this color pop. The blues and greens are cool in this color. Until you see a clean one, on a sunny day, IN PERSON.. it does it no justice.

Im not even sure what that means...

I know its much nicer than your boring blacks, reds, and whites that everyone else has. This would be the 23rd vw ive owned and the most "out of my comfort zone" color ive ever had, but i dont regret it one bit. I get compliments on the daily.

Agreed. It's one of the most head-turning cars on the road. My girlfriend and my friends are not car people and recently I saw a GFG GTI drive by us while we were eating brunch outside and when i freaked out and pointed at it, instead of making fun of me like they always do when i geek out over cars, they were like yo. I see what you mean. that's one of the coolest colors i've ever seen.

And yeah... I'll take this over white, gray, black, silver, red any day lol

Feel free to PayPal me the funds. I like the salad shooters. It's not perfect but will work till I replace these tires around 20k from now.
