go ahead will give it a mean look.. keep a medium black shade for the window glasses also.. DONOT mess the look with stickering
easy trick to choose colors is trying the sahade on a photoshop will give a pretty good idea..

Or make yourself a sleeper. Heres how:

Keep the outside bog-standard 800, dont change anythin.
Modify the engine to scarcely beleivable levels, tune the exhaust not to make too much noise, and wallah! That bloke in the flashy executive saloon will be a speck in your rear view, wondering what the hell happened to the innocent-looking M800 he had just seen! lol

paint some light color,as wherever u gonna paint it will not be as the original finish.so its gonna fade after sometime.
geta k&n filter ,better 100/90w bulbs with relays.mabbe a third stop light.
the m800 does not have many options as regards tires.so stay with ur 145/70r12,but mabbe u can go for tubeless.

you can also just keep the body stock n clean. Just do up the body work and clear dents, paint the car a good color like white or red. Polish it. Wash and Polish the sidewalls of the tyres. You can put some good wheels too. Polish or do up the interiors too, if they have faded. please don't put any unwanted stickers on the car! try to get the plastic of the headlights and tail-lights and whatever lights cleaned also. add in a free flow and some good seat covers, gear know, steering wheel and mats.

hi
let me introduce myself to u...... my name is Anupam . i stay in mumbai at worli.
i would love to see i m800 in a jet black colour with chrome alloys (13in) with nice broad low profile tyres (not the jutting out type) . you can also do up the front with a pair of hella fog placed in to the bumpers. The radiator grill should be in nice matt red so can be the mirrors(if u want a matching look) . the exhaust should also have a nice chorme tip . the tints can be in a similar colour or can be in a slight mirrorish look.
according to me this look will be sober as well as a little sporty. and plz no stickers they r now old fashion .let me know if u like the concept i shall be waiting .....
bye
