Golf mk8 / Re: GTI CS Oryx White pictures
« Last post by ash_rage on 16 April 2021, 09:11 »
As already said, pictures will not do Oryx White justice and, in the right conditions, it looks amazing but, additionally, there are two main factors to take into account. 

One, 80% of the British weather is grey.  If I lived in a sunny country or at least a country that has actual seasons, then I would go for pearl white paint as that's where you get the best from it.  As soon as you get any kind of cloud, the car just looks like a dirty off-white. 

Secondly, you have to keep the paint really clean.  Again, any kind of obvious visible dirt anywhere on the car - I know mine accumulates dirt quick up the back and on the top of the rear bumper - and it makes the whole car look as though it is just unwashed white.

In perfect conditions, it is really nice but, on an everyday driver in the UK, it's really not that great, in my opinion.

Appreciate its subjective however someone has a Golf at work in the same colour and everyday I walk past it regardless of weather it looks great

I’ve had white cars before so see where you are coming from bout it getting dirty

Bit late to this thread but was interested in the insurance aspect. A few family members run BMWs with summer and winter wheels. They’ve been told that if the diameter of the wheel doesn’t increase their insurance companies aren’t interested. That surprised me.

Is your car less than 3 years old?

Hardly an objective review; he’d already made his mind up on the outcome before he got anywhere near the car. IMHO he’s being controversial just so people view his video which seems to be working; he’s had 3,800-plus views so far in one day.

Funny how we're all different. Had mine since new and there's no way I wanted the PP. Brakes were a bit to "ooo, look at me" for my taste, as I luuurve the subtle look of the GTI. The ability of the standard car far exceeds my own and so I'd never use anything more.

A good summary there. It was the best review I’ve seen in ages, if you know what I mean. Comical. He comes to it with an agenda and leaves with zero credibility. The majority of their comments are just useless waffle. I presume they’ve borrowed the car. Imagine letting someone else drive your car then you find out they’ve slated it as much as they have. Wow.
