Gogi - The Blue scheme is too dull, something more brighter than that please. And the red that Ed posted is fabulous, just perfect! Will make your car look real cute!

@ iraghava- The only other option I liked is the cherry/wine red that V1p3r has suggested.

Like this one suggested by Karl.

[quote=karlosdeville;397856]heres a few more combos...

I have an inclination towards a two tone combo...though invariably it teeters towards looking like a taxi...

Know what, you guys win. Even my paint guys trying to convince me for a cherry red. Well ok then, the cherry red it will be. All you guys dont seem to like the Blue so Ill go with the majority. Done, now tell me guys, cherry red with a white top or black top. I think white/cream top rather than the black top.

IMHO - If you are having light coloured upholstery then go with a beige top combo & a black top if you want black / dark grey upholstery.

Just saw the above 2 posts - seems a unanimous choice of beige / light coloured top

Wow the cherry red looks good & yes better than the blue one :-)

I agree with Ishan, it will look with cream top. I think beige interiors should look good with this combo

Wine Red with a Silver top or a Pearlised silver top!! Please, try on a small sheet and see the combi.
in '82 a friend had done a silver lower half[below the side putty] with a white upper half. it looked a killer. I myself used to use the famous midtown blue[closer to black in the night] with very high gloss, with alloys.
