I voted for Glacier Frost Mica but be prepared to fork over at least $4k unless you get a substantial hook up. Are you planning on doing the engine bay and door jambs? Quality work and good paint cost money. I would be very leery if you get a quote for much less than that.

Same here. Black is a huge pain to live with day to day and metallic white is kind of bland...but not as bland as my desert mist metallic.

Oh yeah, prepare to pay $3000-5000 for an OEM (or slightly higher) quality paint job. You want a shop that will take the car apart to paint it. Plus has the skill to low down paint with minimal orange peel and be able to wetsand and buff the paint without leaving buffer swirls everywhere.

^^ I was thinking the same thing.

I think the bmw space grey is hot but I might be biased since I love my graphite pearl accord.

oh no, i didnt ask permission...trust me, i wanted a new car for myself and my kids but THE WIFE decided that i can keep MY car and she'll pick up a new one. that's what you call a keeper, bro! a woman that lets you keep the things you love without question i love my accord but i love my kids more. i think of this as a triple treat! 1. we still get a new car 2. i get to keep my accord 3. i have an awesome wifey
