    1. 08-14-2012 11:17 PM #1
      White.

      But if they had a pearl white, would like that better.

      I wanted something close to our old Techno Blue beetle and Reef Blue was it. LOVE the color.

      Once you go black, you'll never go back... to reef blue, or whatever else

      2012 Beetle in Toffee Brown
      08-15-2012 03:06 PM #10
      I love my toffee brown. My last car was black and never again will I buy that color. Shows every ding, nick and scratch something fierce and looks dirty 10 minutes after you washed it.

      Definitely Toffee Brown!!
      I get a lot of compliments on the color, especially from men. One of them wanted to know the exact color name because he was getting his truck custom painted.

      I call it "Highlander" because on Beetles there can be only one color.

      White is my favorite! However is white truly a color? Depends on who you ask.

      2012 Beetle in Toffee Brown

      I really wish car makers would bring back teal. I had a metallic teal Geo Storm. I loved that car.

      Red. Interior by far looks the best with the gorgeous red dash, which also matches the needles and dash lights, as well as the accents on the touchscreen stereo.

      A Beetle with chrome heritages is a flashy car, so it needs a flashy color.

      This may be the nicest color put on any series Beetle (or New Beetle). In typical VW fashion, it was a limited run.

      When it comes to colors for the B12, VW is so behind the curve. Look at Mini.

      Gosh, just let loose those paint mixers on LSD and they'll bring back the 60s, 70s in no time!!!

      I sent Herr Piech and VWoA each a box full of Skittles for inspiration but I don't think they got the message.

      That said, I like CW, RB, Yella, Toffee, PlatGrey (in no specific order).

      Anything but yellow. I like it on the exterior, but it's WAY too yellow inside. I'm prone to migraines, and I imagine that harsh yellow dash would be hell on earth for me.

      Not to mention the anxiety factor of yellow.

    23. 08-29-2012 05:02 PM #23
      I love the denim blue, but since it doesn't come in turbo and surely will not be available on the R, I will most likely end up with silver or blue.

      I really liked the toffee brown but wasn't willing to sacrifice the turbo for it. Ended up with Reef Blue which I like a lot.

      Euro spec Golf GTD (diesel version of the GTI)... this color would go well on the Beetle - Kermit Green.

      This is a dumb thread because color is a form of preference we will all have are own top choice.

      My car, when I get it will be reef blue, and I really like denim blue, but you can't get it in a turbo. I would to see a darker blue like batik blue on the new beetle.

      Yellow but no one had a turbo yellow when I bought mine so settled on white.... Would only get yellow on the turbo to avoid the yellow explosion inside... that would be a bit much...

      Denim Blue is the correct answer.
