I think the blue would make it look too much like the new 04 color and it would get played out imo. I think the black or gunmetal would look nice and sleek.

Yeah. Like... Pepto-Bismol Pink... or... Tie-Dye Multicolor sht...
Or, maybe, metal. You know... just rip the paint, never repaint it again.

I really like that, but in hot rods... I wouldn't like to see a Vic like that... Especially with the black plastic bumpers.

Gonna try and find some paint colors for ya bro

I've found that silver is the favorite color... followed by black, blue and gray (any shade).
Also found that there's a relation between gray cars and more accidents... red cars and traffic tickets (I'm sure of this one... I've had three speeding tickets... speeding alongside 3 or 4 cars at the same speed. Why always me? Is it the red?)
... White cars... "click"... supposedly they get along... whatever.

Other colors I'd like to suggest: Metallic red, metallic white, pearlized white.
Plus, these BMW M3 colors (I love them all... but these are my faves):

Silver Gray Metallic (By the way, these wheels are just beautiful!)


Carbon Black Metallic


Interlagos Blue Metallic (It doesn't look at it's best here, but if you look at an M3 in this color out in the sun... wow!)


When I find any other colors, I'll repost.
