      So I am dying to get the habernero orange color on the new 2020 GLI. It looks like it is only offered on the arrivals Jetta. Does anyone know if this is at all possible? I have wanted an orange Jetta forever but will only buy the GLI. Thanks in advance.

      Maybe get the stock red GLI color? There's a hint of orange in there.

      I wouldn't recommend an aftermarket solution.

      Nope. And habenero was just dropped from the Tiguan so probably expect the same on the regular Jetta by next year.

      So disappointing. Well then it’s either red or black I guess.

      I am a fan of "impact" colors; I have a Yellow Jacket 2004 GTO, and I had an Ignition Orange 2008 G8 GT, so when I saw Habenero Orange on the color palette I was excited, that was until I saw it in person. I wasn't as impressed.

      I don't believe Habenero Orange was ever available on the GLI, only on the 5 trim levels of the regular Jetta.

      Same here- I ended up getting the arteon in kurkuma yellow and it is strikingly elegant. People are literally drawn to it. It is a mix between yellow and gold.

      I love that color, and it looks amazing on the Arteon.

      You’re right. It was never available. I wonder if you can custom order it. Would that allow that?

      I mean I know the answer (no), but I guess it wouldn't hurt to reach out to VW Customer Care and see if you could pay a premium for the paint change on the GLI. The cars (Jettaand GLI) are on the same assembly line after all.. They offered the spektrum program on the Golf R with 40 colors, but the plant in germany was better equipped for the paint load.

      The only hang up I can see is that the GLI has a different body kit which may not be able to be painted in that color by the robots.. It is a special color after all, so you don't want them half-assing the multi-layer process.

      No you can't special order a custom colored Jetta. No matter how easy someone thinks it will be they won't ever do it.

      It wasn’t a custom color. They have the habernero orange in the regular Jetta. Seems crazy that don’t offer it in the GLI since it’s the sportier version!

      We got Pure grey. Im actually really happy about that because i love pastel colors. Do you remember almost 20 years ago seeing a Mercialogo for the first time, then seeing one again years later in its non metallic grey option. Im really happy they brought one of those colors down to Jetta trim level. But to answer your question on why it didnt come to the GLI, we already had a premium paint option. Seldom do i ever see them do more than one on anything other than the Golf R.

      I wish they offered Habanero Orange on the GLI I was really disappointed they didn't so I ended up with a white GLI instead.

      I'm still waiting for the GLI to be available in BLUE. Any shade, dark or light, its unbelievable that there is not a single blue option for the GLI. The regular jetta, golf, GTI, R, Tiguan, Atlas literally EVERY other model has some blue option except the GLI...

      There used to be about 50 special order colors available for the Golf R, for a $2500 premium.

      My guess is the Puebla plant doesn't have the capacity to do special order colors.
