Even under the sun, Dark Iron Blue looks darker than expected. Tough decision to make...

Doens't look that great to me (probably more of the wheels than the colour though). TBH I think you might as well go grey, lol. It's so dark!

That's disappointing - thanks for the heads up. The carbon grey was fine as-is.

Personally I find it pretty nice. But yeah I agree that carbon grey was stunning.

Seems that you can configure the 2018 Golfs on http://app.vw.ca/ihdcc/en/configurator.html. I've never understood why VW Canada's website has a configurator and another separate build and price tool.

Oh and judging from the configurator, the base GTI will only have halogens with a LED bulb at the bottom strip of the headlight as a DRL. Sort of like the same setup as the current base C-Class without the LED light option.

It seems the Canadian version is getting the fog lights standard.
