What color to paint my car?

This is my current paint job and soon I'm going to get a body kit but I'm
Not sure what color I should get as the pearl white is not doing it for me lol.

Tangerine Scream, just to annoy all those ST owners that paid the extra $495 :)

Seriously, it's about as personal preference of a question as you can get. What colors do you like? Since we're talking aftermarket, you can go for literally anything you want. They're all going to show dirt, though some are worse than others, and they're all going to get hot.

I liked the Carbon Steel VW has for the GTI, a bit darker than Ford's current Sterling Grey Metallic. Most cars look good in black, IMO, but I like a deep, glossy finish, rather than the metallic blacks Ford's using this year. Not at all good in the keep-clean category, though. Awful lot of neutral (black/grey/silver/white) cars on the road these days, so maybe it's time to go for some color. Don't see a lot of British Racing Green these days; that would be unusual, if that's what you're looking for.

keep it white and spend that money into the aesthetics looks of the car

I was looking for a bright "fast n furious" type color that normally tuner cars have, like a nice orange or green color. Cause
This white isn't even that white, it's an off white which looks very bland and even a bit female to an extent.

If you paint it ANY othe color than white... Unless you pay a lot and have the better paint job. It wwill llok cheesy as hell whenn you open the doors, trunk, hood.
I knew a guy who went from gold to red. It looked like trash.
From any distance it was OK, but up close? forget it.
So if you ARE planning on doinga tons of prep work, and they are going to do all the door inside trunk, hood.. Then OK.
And yeah, picjk the color YOU like. Who cares what somes idiots on a website think?

My only comment is right now you blend in. No car screaming "Please Officer stop me" color...
So remember that part too.
