Maybe even lesser since there will be no tinkering & change of plastic parts.

But the orange is a super colour. I guess you dont like it. Recently had my bed room painted in orange & everyone said yuk, but i love the serenity & soothing hue of this colour every time i wake up in the morning.

Keep it stock. No decals, vinyls. Black rims, nice tyres. Try to upsize. Coupled with the bumper on mclaren's pic, it would rock.

if you are so unhappy with the colour try adding black detailing to parts of the car. Maybe paint the hood in black. Black with the original colour will certainly give you a break from what you seem to totally dislike. 15" alloys preferably black would also change the look big time.

Cheers

Adobe photoshop is a great tool to preview your car before going in for a mod. You can apply the tint of the window, change the color of specific area, applying vinyls (like Stripes), changing tyres. You don't have to be an expert to perform these things.

Get a repaint. That colour is horrible. While you're at it, you might as well get a custom colour.
