I am surprised to see reflex silver so far down the list. I think it looks superb on a cali.

However looking at the colour charts for the T6 I'm really keen on the rubbertree red, deep, dark and sultry, although when I do come to swapping the new regency green looks interesting.

Oh rubbertree red is the NEW colour to have .....

I thought the new mango colour a bit wishy washy, like custard without the custard powder :(

Does anyone have a Blackberry Cali I can have a look at in Sussex? I just can't make a decision on what colour I'm going for until I see one!

Where is Bamboo Garden Green on the poll?
By omitting this, does this make you colourist? :Nailbiting

If that's the current colour range then VW needs a large angry rocket up their exhaust pipe. They're boring, drab and lacking much, if any imagination. How about some brighter colour choices that imply fun, holidays and leisure. With the exception of white, red and yellow the rest are all really sober and make you want to join the long queue behind the nearest hearse! Buy the cheapest Comi Transporter van and you get offered Bright Orange and Summer Blue whilst the brightest colour you get if you spend both arms and legs on a Cali is yellow and you have to pay extra for that! Just saying.

BTW what happened to Acapulco Blue?

T6 Cali On Order
All the two tone colours IMHO look great
Black and grey looks really nice as does blue and white (I’ve gone for candy white and cherry red two tone) :Grin

Yes the two colour range is an attempt at doing something imaginative but IMO even those choices are boring. Apart from the funeral directors black/grey combo you can have most of the usual drab colours but only with a white top so VW haven't exactly let rip on the colour choice front. In contrast just take a look at a Fiat 500 colour chart where the choice for this cheap small car is vast and exiting.

Agreed - a rhubarb and custard Beach would be my #1 choice. Perhaps I should get the bottom half of Amarillo wrapped in burgundy.

That sounds nice. One or two bods on here have had the bottom half reprayed or wrapped and the results look good. Of course it's down to personal choice but when you look back at the early VW camper vans they had some great colour schemes so what's happened in the VW boardroom? Are they all colour blind?

Looking to buy
This is a tough question, got to say.

I love the two toners, ocean blue and white as a favorit. It gives the Cali some classic camperlook i really like. But do i want my Cali to look like a camper? I am not sure. Stealth camping also hardly doable with a white top part which can be seen from miles away.

On the other hand.... a white top is maybe a bit saver on the road, specially at night, cause of visibility...

Than i love a complete black Cali. But full black, how will that be in very hot summers? No idea but could that be a dealbreaker?

Maybe some gray than? Or maybe deep brown, metallic.... i am just not sure atm what color(s) i should pick.

Lucky for me i have plenty of time to chose haha.

Would also like to add i was wondering, reading this topic, how a Cali will look like A-team style :). Could that be fun, goodlooking or so bad it hurts?

When I was looking at a Transporter conversion (Hillside Birchover) I was very taken with the (German Emergency Vehicle) Orange

Unfortunately you could only have that in Startline trim, and then you had to manually spec the base van up to a satisfactory level.

Highline trim level itself only came in all the usual boring 'Grown Up' colours :headbang.......

This is one of my particular favourite colours - spotted in Wales yesterday haha

Luckily I think they were deployed to the wrong area !
