Black everytime, they look brill in black with red calipers and the black headlights. As they say once youve had black you wont look back.

Got to agree i love having a black car now but red looked the absolute business.

That was FLASH red though mind [;)][:p]

I would go Silver, because the red paint is not metallic or pearlescent so it will be very soft. While the black looks nice but is a pain to keep clean. Whereas Silver looks good and doesn't look dirty so quickly.

Black is stunning, really compliments the Anni finish on the alloys. Silver comes a close second. Red is just too in your face and steals away the splendour that the small details [painted callipers, Recaro seats, ali trim, anni rims, chrome exhaust] would usually get. Each to their own though and all that [;)]

I would say red,lets be honest,there's a vast amount of silver Golfs out there(including mine!),so i reckon it would be quite nice to be different. Red on these mkiv's wont fade,as they are a laquered finish unlike previous models,but polish it anyway,as it will just look even better! Dont forget,red was one of the most popular Golf GTi colours right from the mk 1 until the recent trend to buy metallic finishes. What better colour to have on a model that celebrates 25 years? Just my opinion,of course! Paul.

Oh yes,forgot to mention,silver can be a bugger to match if you ever need to have it repaired or sprayed! Just something to consider if youre about to part with 15 grand!....Damn,ive just bought a silver 4mo for 15 grand!!! Oh well.
