      Figured I would start a registry for the best color for our cars, I’m picking mine up on Saturday.

      Show off your GFG!

      Here’s mine sitting at the dealer, 2018 Autobahn Manual.

      Checking in. ‘18 SE con manuel. Glad I got one before VW dropped the plaid seats in the SE. Drove from Pittsburgh to south Charlotte, NC just for the color.

      I went back and forth on plaid seats, I love them honestly. But autobahn doesn't have them at all ha.

      I flew to DC from Huntington, WV then drove back on Saturday. Had never seen the color in person before Saturday HA!

      '18 SE 6mt with plaids here! Picked it up march of last year, took the dealer a couple days to find it for me and sent a driver because I told them Id rather go pick it up than wait another week or so for it to arrive on a truck. I love this car.

      While I love my blue metallic, I think I like this color just a liiiiittle bit more. Probably because you never see it. I think I've seen two out in the wild within the last couple of years.

      Considering having my car wrapped in this color, if someone makes a vinyl that matches that is..

      Had a mkvi in shadow blue metallic. Imo it’s got a lot more depth of color than the current night blue metallic. The shadow blue would almost change color depending on the light. Navy in the sun and almost purplish under fluorescent lighting in a parking garage. The night blue reminds me of a navy suit. Nice, but somber. Clearly I’m biased but gfg is the way to go if you want a gti in an actual color in the US.

      I think it’s interesting there are so few GFG in the wild. I’ve never seen one in this area and there are a fair number of GTIs here.

      I've only seen two others locally, one last summer and one last week, an S trim, that apparently the local VW dealer just sold to the guy about 3 weeks ago. I'm friends with a salesman and he said they have sold very, very few mainly because they aren't producing a lot in GFG. My car was the first one they sold last year.

      I bought this thing back in late Nov 18 and have never been happier in a car. Lightweight mods to start, got big plans!

      Great thread though. Definitely the greatest color choice. Y'all are winners!

      There’s something like 6 VW dealerships in the greater Pittsburgh region. When I bought mine in late March 2018 there was one S with a stick at one dealership and one at another dealership trim unknown since I didn’t care because DSG. I had the inventory manager at my preferred dealership search for the spec I wanted. There was nothing in PA, OH, WV, or MD and there was one sold order unit in NY. Crazy.

      Went through the same thing here in the Reading area. It's pretty awesome that we have the same car though!

      @Lovic87, Bronze wheels are on my list, so I appreciate the photos you’ve posted. =)

      Konig Ampliform correct? Can you post the specs for me?

      18x8.5 et43. Going to go a bit lower, otherwise I'd have went with a wider tire instead of the stock 225/40/18

      One of the last few new 2018 GFG Autobahn w/Manual left to purchase. I think there were four in the US left when i bought mine last week.

      Love this color, drove about 50 miles to go buy it.

      Anyone know how many GFG GTIs were produced in 2018?

      I bought mine last day of March in ‘18. You must have swooped in and snagged the only one anywhere around PA literally days before me! Excellent taste!

      Mine came from MD which was the only one on the east coast at all, so you were much more lucky than I was.

      During my search in the PNW I started looking around May 2018 and until late December 2018. Only a couple of cars showed up and they were both base model DSGs. =( My search radius was over 500 miles... Then magically after Christmas a 6MT SE showed up in Seattle while I was visiting family there. I can’t believe I got so lucky.

      Washed and coated, caught it in the sun. Love how this color changes.

      Just took home a ‘19 GFG 6MT S. So excited to join the club brothers and sisters. I was set on a white SE, walked into the dealer and saw the GFG for the first time. Love at first sight. The only manual they had, and the hell with the sunroof, the seats are just so awesome!

      The only thing l wish it had was the lighting package. Time to look for lighting alternatives.



      Cheers!

      Looks great. And I agree that it was BS that they put leather in the SE instead of the plaid. The only reason I looked hard to find and purchased a new '18SE (even though it was 2019) was that I wanted those seats with the sunroof. Kudos on the green with the MT it will be even cooler in time because you see so few of them on the road.

      Thanks! I just recently found out that 18’s has the sunroof/plaid option, so sweet. I just couldn’t get over how beautiful the color was, that it was a manual (which was a must for me), and the plaid to boot. Seeing the big brakes and LSD, must as well, and it was a done deal.
