That is Sanders car, from last Friday night at the Miami Subs in Tampa! It is fresh out of the body shop. I believe the car is actually the new Vapor color from VW not white. Now I'm pissed I didn't head out there Friday night!

Kyle Paton should have been out there somewhere too!

Nice! I like the non-wing look. He needs to get rid of the banners and get white rims on it (and maybe another 1" of lowering).

That might be Vapor. Even in broad daylight Vapor can look close to white.

If it VW's Vapor, the I say some Vapor color-matched rims would be kind of cool. Or dark gray.

I like it, but I think rims would make a bigger impact. I would have left the grill black to match the vents and added the rear spats to complete the body kit look. But from what I can see the interior is pretty tight!!!

Edit- And made the sun roof black, to make it look like a window. +

I think the grill is too much. He should paint the rims white instead. Other than that it looks pretty sweet.

Proactive defense of this car:

My instincts are telling me this car is close getting dissed by someone. I wanted to add that I like it a lot.

IMO, if you are going to repaint your car in a custom color, using a current car's distinctive color is pretty cool.

I've already seen an older GTI painted VW's Vapor color. I've seen a GTI painted Porsche's Jazz Blue, and one painted with the new Audi S4 medium blue color.

It's even cool when it crosses brands and car nationalities. The only exception: I hope no one squirts a non-Honda/Acura with Electric Blue Pearl. Ugh.

Those tires look like the stock RE92s. All that money spent on the cars looks and didn't bother to spend the cash on good tires? Geez. I hope that isn't the case cause that would be sad.

I like it, but it is way too low for my tastes. I'd have serious issues with that front bumper - with me driving it would be in shreds!

Whoa! easy with the White outs!
The grille should stay white tho. Ditch the banners.... And the rims has to be white.
Not my taste but if it rocks his boat.... all the best.

I like the front, but the car looks disproportional without anything in the back. Not even a spoiler. I just looks akward. If he had ver. 5 spoiler with spats or rear valence then it would look good. I would just rather spend that money towards mods, but hey, nice car.

Just about everyone else's 2 is in, guess it's my turn

Everyone's got their taste's, here's mine...

Put the stock bumper on with a lower lip
Dark grey or black rims
Better tires
Black moonroof
Black door handles
Black grill
Black and white interior instead of blue and white
Put the wing back on
And make it a sedan

MHO - But it's not my car so he can do whatever his heart desires, so slap on some white rims...heh if only they made white tires, that wouldn't be like wow...it'd be like woah...

But if he's gonna keep up the super white or vapor or whatever image, he needs to paint his hood vents and the inside of his scoop as well.

Even though I personally don't like the non-wing look, I like to see someone try sometihng different...again, my 2.

A car's front end is like a human face to me...

1) The lights are the eyes.

2) The lower intake(if the car even has one) is the mouth

3) The bumper fascia is the jaw.

Don't get me wrong(because I love a strong "jaw" on a car), but this car reminds me of a Japanese Jay Leno... toooo much chin!

The RS fascia has a perfect between agressive and functional.
