If it matters to you, the Elbrus weigh, according to Tire Rack, 23.8 lbs/each, the Borbets weigh 27 lbs/each.

I think the Borbets will work really well with the body lines of the mk3, though they are pretty heavy.

Borbet. Those Elbrus sticks out too much that youll end having scratches once rubbed on curbs.

Borbet! The other ones look like something you could find in Les Schwab... IMHO. They just look kind of plain for custom wheels, ya know?

But, my wheels are white, so take my $0.02 for what it's worth lol
