Hi all!

Getting some nice $ back from VW for my 2011 Golf TDI, just ordered new Kona. The 1.6L turbos are so hard to come by here unless you want top trim and either white or blue! Saying it could be over 2 months wait for turbos...

Not even sure what colour I will get....it’s a pick 3 and we will see. Went with red, orange and acid yellow. For us this trim level gets the black roof!

Already lurking and getting ready to order new bulbs, roof racks etc....THANKS to all who have ventured before me.

Welcome the forum and glad to hear you've already got an order placed for the Kona. Seeing as how you're coming from a TDI, I think it might be well worth waiting on a 1.6T. And the two tone color schemes look great, be sure to let us know what you decide on.

Will do for sure Gideon.

I'll take any one of those 3 colours in the 1.6 as soon they find one. Here in Canada (at least where I am these 1.6s are tough to come by. Waiting for them to arrive!)

I wanted White, however the only Ultimate AWD my dealer had in stock was Thunder Gray which wasn't at the bottom of my list for color choices, so I took it. Now that I've had it a couple weeks I really like the color...

Thunder Gray, ugh....that is what I ended up with too. Wanted silver stone lighter color for heat reflection and lack of dirt showing. First real dark color vehicle I ever owned. The 2.0 in sports mod does have some turbo like acceleration. Yes the 1.6 turbo is like 5x the ass kicking jump, but I do not have any turbo experience and fear the long time expense of repairs. Yes 7 year warrenty but gee, smaller pistons and ram it up into high rpms has to wear faster ? My old 2 cents. Thunder gray looks lighter at night with matalic glow , have you noticed ? No metalic glow in daylight. Best of luck with it, just put 200 miles on mine. one week.

Well as you can see by my Avatar I ended up with Tangerine Comet. Dogs Love it! Wife and I as well.

Been fun to drive, one week and just over 600km on it...no gripes here!
