Change color or stay with metallic dirt

So I'm thinking about a paint job don't know if I should though being a rare color. I do like the color but I'm more of a lime green person. What do you think.

I won't cry if you paint it. I've never been much of a fan of brown but that's just me. Plus the color doesn't really add any value to the car so painting this car or another wont change much.

Painting it lime green certainly isn't going to help it's value.

Don't paint it lime green. Please. Especially since, unless you spend a decent amount of money, they will not paint certain parts of the car, and you will have a hideous mixture of the original Kona brown paint and lime green (i.e., the door jambs, under the hood, under the hatch, etc).

Polish and wax it really well and the metallic brown will sparkle, maybe you'll get a new appreciation for it.

I've had it for three years it's been polished and waxed multiple times. Also as I said lime green is just my color. Also I'm not gonna spend the money to have it painted incorrectly. And lastly if I was worried about value ford still sells the color so I can always paint it back.
