What color looks the best?

I always love cars in white, imagine driving a white M Coupe in Canada...

I've had the idea of painting the car to another color... but it's a big $$$ project, and it'll probably drop the car's resale value... would u do it?

I like M Coupes in Estoril, Imola, and Phoenix. Bright and loud is how it should be.

Repainting a car properly is huge $. Money that you will never see a return on.

you could always buy an extra set of body panels and swap back and forth.

1) Imola Red
2) Alpine White
3) Topaz Blue

I love black, but I just can't keep up with the swirls. Silver always looks clean but just doesn't have impact. For me there is only one colour.

Of course Estoril is nice...

Your colour looks great. Don't touch it!

Montreal blue IMHO.

Maybe that's because mine is that colour.

White does actually look pretty good. Most cars look like crap with white.
