First decide if you will have a "color" or not.

If you are doing a color, I say "Shock". I don't like Crush, it's too General Lee for me. I also don't like Red Hot, had too much trouble with red cars in the past.

I really like that green, but not on that car. Same with the safe Navy, not a great fit.

Else if you are not doing a color, Shadow Gray or maybe White. The black & silver are terrible on this.

I'd say there's consensus on a loud color.

My point is that on this car, loud color IS good color.

I think that white with the black accents is beautiful but then again I typically only purchase white or black cars.

The Crush is pretty cool ... really you can't go wrong with most of these colors.
