I think this is maimi blue, which is darker than Lago blue. Something about low mk1s...

Had the painter around today to look at the Jetta.  Originally wanted to go Porsche macadamia brown, but I think it will look a bit odd with the jettas blue interior. What are some nice colours that will go with dark blue interior? Preferably darker colours?

Porsche brown would look awesome, but you're right it probably won't work with the blue interior.


What was the factory colour?
Personally, I'd love a white one.

Yea I had thought about painting interior. But they always end up looking like ass in a few years.

It was originally silver. Which for me is to bland. I'd love to do it a dark brown if I could find some matching interior? Or even a dark blue to match the blue. But I can't find any I like

So if you want to keep blue interior, and you don't want anything too freakish and you want a dark colour, I guess you have - Blue, Black and Grey to choose from.

Have you got a photo of the interior? 

Actually if you like Porsche brown, then how about some of the Porsche dark purples? I've seen a few purple and burgundy Porkers with blue interiors.

Like this colour, it's sort of purplish/reddish brown:

Options Dave, white, silver or Blue Oceanic Metallic perhaps...? Or you could get your dash and door cards re skinned to match brown?

Yea not a fan of
Light colours. I do like that Porsche colour but I already have 3 purple cars so may be a bit strange if I had another. Any nice dark greens? Maybe

More Lago blue. Could be a good option for the Jetta, and keep the blue interior?



Vs maimi blue
