Show me your Eternal Blue Mica paintjobs!

Hopefully we'll be returning our Dieselgate Jetta Sportwagen back to VW in the next few weeks. Once we have money in-hand we'll be putting it towards a 2017 3 GT hatch. We'll probably be trading-in our '06 3s Touring hatch at the same time (unless I can convince DH that it's worth keeping for the almost 16 year old).

I'm pretty set on the Eternal Blue Mica with parchment leather seats. I'd love to see some photos, since there's a good chance that we won't see this color in-person before ordering. It's entirely possible that I won't be able to test drive the manual, either (no biggie. There were no manuals when we test drove for our original 3, we ended up having to order to get a manual hatch).

Mines a 2017 GT hatchback with a manual. Eternal blue wasnt my first choice, but the color has grown on me. I have the aero kit and the preferred equipment package.

That's beautiful. I love the looks of the aero kit, but it's a no-go in an area that gets pretty heavy snowfalls. I'd be scraping it up badly just on our street that is not consistently well-plowed.

We get our share of snowfall here but i dont much worry about it, as i have an old jeep.

Anyway heres a shot of the rear, since no one else with eternal blue has chimed in.

I love this color. I tried really hard to get one, but they could not locate one for me with the options group I wanted and the black interior. I would have had to order and wait much longer - with that said I'm not disapointed with what I ended up with (red).

It's a very classy looking color.

car0800, are those the parchment leather seats? That looks like exactly what I'm planning to order...right down to manual transmission. Looks gorgeous!
