My car is currently the silver color you see in the pic, it was in a wreck and is getting a full repaint. Should I keep the silver or go with a Metallic Blue. Let me know what you think.

Keep it stock, or go for another blend of silver (Like you could go for an M3 silver or what have you.), unless you're repainting EVERYTHING (engine bay, under all the plastic/interior panels of the inside/under the fenders, etc etc)....

Though, I drive a red car, which makes it a PIA to paint it anything other than RED. I hate it.

For all the work it would be to do a color change, it's safest to stay silver. My car used to be red, so when the seatbelt hits inside the door, it chips away to red and looks bad. It'll be cheaper just to stay silver.

Yea well the silver on it right now is not stock. It is the silver found on the 99 preludes with metallic flake in it. Insurance is paying for all the paint plus my dad is doing it cuz thats what he does for a living. I just dont know what would look more original cuz I've never seen another dsm with a silver like mine.

I would say a darker blue like the blue from a supra. I think blue is the best color for eclipses. I hate sky blue with a passion though. Just makesure it is somewhat dark.

dark blue seems to have been a big trend this summer; it looks good, but im pretty sick of it. Then again, the majority of DSMs are red or silver. Its your choice man, pick what you like.

Yea thats what people who want me to keep the silver say that everyone is painting them blue. I wanted to cuz it looks good and its my fav. color. Ths silver is nice also either way it will be custom.
