Silver or black. Yellow would look ok too.

i painted the cup holders and the ashtray yellow so far, it took about 2 days with the painting and retouching, man it was so hard to get the paint to stick, then i noticed i had to go over it a few mintutes at a time. The yellow looks good, ill post pictures soon..

i dont know about yellow + green personally, but its your car, so its your decision.

i would probably go silver or black. maybe a deep shade of green

odublar has a green and yellow scheme goin. i would change it up a little, i think maybe black and green or white, sometimes color schemes start to look tacky. be careful with what you do.

white and green would be awesome, IMO. but i have heard that white paint does not look that great unless its done very very well. i guess it shows more dirt and blemishes.

I say do green to match the green. I just dont think yellow and green go together too well, but that's just me, do what you think looks good.

i plan on putting yellow stipes on my car soon. I think it would look good since a dark green goes well with yellow, i would say. I know this is a very hard color to match and look good but its an idea. It's fun making my car look good for only $12 for a can of paint, but the worst part is it not looking right and spending money to get these parts lol.

Wait your info says you have a Kona edition, what color green did it come in? I've only ever seen Konas in that metallic Dirt color... is it the same green as normal Foci?
