Re: Help me choose a color for my MK1 Scirocco (LimeGreen79Rocco)
Lots of good suggestions guys, excellent. My taste, as you may have noticed from my original color choices that I listed, is somewhat understated. TT Grey is now a long shot as it is grey and rainy here too much for that. The light grey/olive non-metallic is a strong possibility and the darker olive metallic is still up there. I feel that the non-metallic colors can really enhance the lines and angles of the A1 chassis cars. Cars with unusual non metallic colors have been quite popular lately and for good reason, they stand out. probably why Audi's TT has that grey. But I have an Indiana Red metallic 80 Scirocco now and had one as a Rabbit before so that's out but I like the metallic on that car. I presently have the factory Gold metallic with a clear coat and it's nice but dated. Not a fan of yellow or blue, too common. I want something unique but very tasteful and undestated.
It is an important consideration for me how the color contrasts with the other parts of the car such as the taillights and trim. Black lookes good with anything so I want a color that looks good with the red/yellow/white of the tails and I will choose a 14" or 15" wheel color that will contrast well. Not interestd in any wheel bigger then that, they must be very lightweight. Dark car/white or silver wheels. Light car/dark or silver wheels. Some light color cars can handle white wheels, it just depends. For example I would never put white wheels on a silver car but I like it on bold colors like orange or lime green or red.
