White looks very good for OHC . Go for it. My second option would be Black, as long as you maintain it very well

Mystic Blue - Lancer SFXi or Metallic Grey- Indica Turbo, Even the Salsa Red shade would look good.

Magnesium Grey, as in PALIO stile.
Grey colors never look outdated

Paint & painting depend on the person/garage that is doing the job. I have seen absolute roadside painters do greater jobs on a merc/bmw than well trained young enthu painters in a paint booth.

Complete body repainting job will cost you around 45K approximately, if get it done from well known workshop. But the price may vary workshop to workshop.

There used to a dark shade of red (maroon maybe). I guess it only came in the VTEC version and was diffrent from the regular lighter red on 1.3 and 1.5 versions. It looked smashing! Try that!
