go with a candy paint job ... I don't see a lot of bimmers with them...the paint blings even when the car is dirty...I have a candy colour paint job on my car and i get a lot of compliments on it

get candy colours from PPG paint....I think they have one of the nicest selection (not too big of a selection but nice colours nonetheless)

kal

p.s. why r u gonna change ur paint anyhow?! if u ask me ..ur colour is sweeet (from what i can tell in ur sig)

i have a bit of rust forming around the sunroof and i ran out of paint ( i had some left over)...to buy a pint of my paint is like 500.00 my cost as a oem facility ( i got it for free the first time)....if i go with a pearl or candy color i could save a ton of money...show me some pics if you got em'...i was thinkin candy orange ?

i like the colour you have now
(even though i havent seen it in person yet)

but i guess i'd go with the orange because it's not too far off of what you have right now.
With the blue, it'll just look too much like randy's i think

how about that orange/yellow on new m3's it looks good. Audi has some nice pearls on s4's from a few years ago.. I'll see if I can find a pic of that orange/yellow. It is not drakar yellow I am thinking of either. You also have to remember your interior colour when you paint it.
let me know what you find out about that paint...
