I'm going to replace my CSG 16 SE w/ a green SE no leather. I'm digging the hell out of the color. And the more people that hate it, the better. Maybe there be so many, like CSG which is apparently on 50% of Mk7 GTI's built.

That's what I like about it. Nostalgia of my 1991 Corrado and my dad's old green 1996 2 door Tahoe. Hell, his current 1993 Corrado is a dark forest green too (tan leather interior).

The big problem I see with the green are the red brake calipers, headlight stripes and grill stripe. Going to look like a Christmas ornament lol.

Thanks for this.
Any idea when the builder will be up on the website?
How about the R info?

For lot more pictures on the Great Falls Green, check this thread http://www.golfmk7.com/forums/showthread.php?t=38241

I'm loving that color and considering one. Based on the comments in the thread, I think it'll become quite a popular color for mk7.5.

I was really hoping for a dark green instead of this tealish color. This is the worst shade of green IMO. Too bad.

I agree. The green just isn't my taste. I've never liked green cars other than lime green (like the RS3 can come in). The GTI green reminds me of those green Dodge Caravans that were everwhere in the late 90's/early 2000's.

Really wish they had gone with a nice non-metallic British Racing Green.

That said my significant other really likes the green/teal so much that she might buy one.

Color is such a personal think, I like the Great Falls Green, for one reason it is not like every other White, Silver, Black, or Gray vehicle on the the road, especially the GTI, it seems like every GTI see on the road is Pure White.

The green changes colors depending on the type of light. In bright sun it has more of blue tint (tealish?) in shade it is more dark green. But you know what everyone doesn't have to like it, I love it and wish Volkswagen would offer more color choices. Why not Yellow or different Reds, and Blues?

Definitely subjective - even my own tastes change over time, or change based on wheel choice, interior, or adding a sunroof (sunroof + a light color looks awkward to me, and I chose White Silver).

My take on blue/green/yellow colors: too many colors! A GTI means you're getting doses of silver, black, and red, especially if you choose Tartan cloth. Adding another color into the scheme looks clumsy/busy to me. But with the R or leather option, I'm less picky (e.g., the R in Lapiz Blue).
