Need Help on New Color!!

Okay here's the deal.....
I've just ordered the Kaminari lip kit for my '03 Nighthawk black coupe. With black Rota subzero wheels.
My car currently has numerous dog scratches, bites, door dings and swirl marks. So I saved up and I plan to repaint the entire car along with the kit.
My dilemma, should I stay with nighthawk black or change to metallic grey?

(thinking about the Tungsten grey clearcoat metallic on the new mustangs or the Titanium grey on the Mazdas)

Any comments, questions, suggestions are welcome.
Thanks

go with which one you like the most!
if you like washing your car a lot and like to see swirl marks...go dark
if you want to hide that crap, go lighter.

My favorite color is PPG's Rosso Corsa, but no civic deserves that paint.
Black is nice but hides detail. Gunmetal / shade of gray is safe, and doesn't make your body kit or lip kit look like its not there.
Hey man its your car, so whatever you like best!

Pearl white is the best all around color I think, but its usually better on sedans.
I would def. stay with the gray kind of color.
My only question is: Are you going to go with the civic color or a custom color?

go with an actual color nothing greyscale. Greys, blacks, and whites just blend in to me. If you are going to spend that much you probably want someone to notice it
