Opinion question about paint job...

ok here's the situation...

Im gonna be painting my car this spring, I was set on the graphite grey that the TSX and TL come in...but then today on the highway I saw a new IS250 pearl white, it was by far the sexiest "white" I've ever seen...

Since we dont see a lot of white 7thgen's do you guys think I should go with the pearl white used by lexus...

also, Im keeping my chrome rims, so what do u think would look better, the chrome with the sexy pearl white, that looks like its fukin' sparkling, or the gunmetal????

let me know!!!!

hmmmmm...graphite grey....hmmmmm...ok...I think it would be a little harder color matching with graphite grey on your vic...but with pearl white..no way you can go wrong with that color....I agree it is one sexy color...you would be able to throw on some chrome rims if ur sticking to that theme on it also...it'll look sweet.Gluck on ur decision...

Chrome can only work with two colors

1) black
2) pearl white

Go with the pearl white Caddy uses. It'll look good. I promise.

I have seen the new IS250 paint color (white) and that thing is sweet. Of course I am not a big fan of chrome (but wont hate) and I thing it would look good.

IS250 White > TL/TSX Gray

yeah....I really think its gonna be the crystal white, just called my dad at the shop (he's a painter), he said he has the new 2006 paint chips and told me he'd bring home the crystal white chip from lexus and the Caddy pearl white aswell...

yeah, I was being drastic about change, I was all like "I need to buy a new car!!!" lol, a colour change is a tad cheaper, and will keep me happy for a while!!!

Vantage should not be trusted
as much as i dislike chrome, i really dislike it on white. go gunmetal if your keeping chrome. If u end up getting a black/gunmetal wheel, paint the car white.

PS. Best colour out there right now is new Civic Si Habenaro Pearl

White would go better with chrome than gunmetal.

white doesn't fit on 7thgens? How can you say something that like that? That just made me laugh so hard when i read your statement.

If you really want a white 7thgen, YOU HAVE TO paint it Championship White. The white from that is unreal, sooooooo nice, just look around, ask around. People will not disagree about the whites, you say Championship White with any other white, people will be like, what was that other white? Only thing they hear is Champ White, lol. Take a look check it out. May be a couple on here, and some one ephatch.com and clubrsx.com

gunmetal really doesnt match pearl white too well. It matches flat white.
Chrome matches pearl white just fine. I am saying this and I hate chrome wheels 99.99999999% of the time

i didn't see that your keeping the chrome wheels. Eh, If your gonna spend $4000+ on Champ White then you have to lose the chrome. Just go with pearl white.

ok so its final, Im going with the Lexus Crystal White...

Now I got another question for ya'll...

I currently have my headlights cleared, Im thinking of blacking them out, I was also thinking of colour matching a la Ferrari but Im not sure it will look good....

I think leaving them cleared out my make the front look tooo "light"...

so again, everybodies opinion...cleared, black or maybe colour matched?
