help me pick a colour

Hey gang, i could use your opinion on colour choice.

my last car (S12) was repainted Suzuka Blue (the pale metalic blue that S2K's came in) and ever since then, i vowed to always have my car in a colour that no other owner of the same model has on their car.

coming from a JDM background, and favouring something more closer to the shade of purple, i was interested in going in the direction of any of the Nissan Midnight purples (that special shade that their skyline GTR's came in). unfortunately, that paint is also HELLA expensive, so im gonna have to go another route:

currently my 316 is Red (i think its brilliantrot). should i go with:

1. Mazda Phantom Purple http://i124.photobucket.com/albums/p...rtopout022.jpg

2. BMW Barique Red Metallic (this colour recently caught my eye) http://speedhunters.com/archive/2010...-of-grunt.aspx

3. a lighter/more purple shade? (thinking towards the purple shade that Crown Royal/Royal Purple Oil comes in

im also open to suggestion.

your thoughts?

Car Quest make "OEM" colour matches. Just bring them the colour code and they will make it for you in the quantity you need it in.
