- T6 Beach 150
Hi Darryl,I have 3 Cali's. All two tones. I'm only going to mention the lower half colours as that's the business end! Acapulco blue is the easiest to look after. Midnight blue looks amazing especially when the sun hits it but boy it shows up the slightest scratches. It's a nightmare to keep perfect...almost as bad as a black. Cherry Red is ok, I just find it a bit...meh! The White over starlight blue is by far the biggest crowd pleaser. People always want to talk to me about that one!
I note your comments with interest. Our first Cali was Pearlescent Black. As you say that was a nightmare to keep clean, so never again. Our current Beach is in Acapulco Blue. That has been a delight as it always looks good even if it hasn't been washed for ages. However, we've just ordered a new Beach (yet to be confirmed by VW), in Candy white over Starlight Blue. Yes it looks great but your comments about that combo have only served to confirm my suspicions. Living in a hard water area means every calcium water mark stands out a mile. Also, I imagine that being basically a white van with a Starlight Blue over spray on the bottom half, every chip and scratch would show as white? Have We made the right choice I wonder? I really like the Acapulco Blue but our family have said that we should have a change!
Having said that, given your comments about the interest shown, I suppose that the Candy White over Starlight Blue would be a winner when the time comes to sell. I know you should buy a vehicle to suit your own needs and tastes but it doesn't hurt to bear in mind the future resale appeal at the same time.
If you were buying again now what would you go for?
