That is a classy, rich color for the Mk7. I find it to be the most striking option on an R-Line with Trenton wheels. All the gray/black/silver tones complement the cars body lines so well.
Having worked in auto collision/restoration and refinishing for years I shyed away from the silvers because paint color and metallics are difficult to match in a repair. Many new/newer vehicles have horrendous ‘silver’ paint jobs from the factory with poor metallic application. VW has a great over paint process with beautiful finishes.

Yes, it is a rich looking color. It just stood out when I was building the car. It just so happened that there was one 6 miles from my home and a manual which was on my get list.
