Saving Up for New Paint. Cant Decide what color. Please Help

Are you looking for an OEM color or do you want something more exotic?

Another one to consider is the White on the Camry Solara. It's got this sort of glow/shimmer about it that's very nice.

I find the NEWEST Infiniti G35 white to be quite nice as well, not sure of the pearl content but it's a very pure white.

slammed is meaning i scrape my car everyday and its only no fender gap now, but going to lower more to 1 or 2 finger tuck after i get my 5 lug and rims on. ill have pictures up when i get my car painted. beauty comes at a price when you slam your car

aye wassup itchthys. im using your ground control wit some tokico blues. rides pretty good in my opinion.

Coolest white color I've seen by FAR, was one that had a lot of pearl in it, and when the sun hit it at a certain angle, it had a lot of red hues in it. I forget what the guy called it. I think he was on cardomain... I'll try to find him. Reaally awesome looking. Not too radical or flashy, but no one will be like you and on the accord coupe it looks smoooth.

Found it. http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2339884

C'mon, tell me this isn't a sweet paint. Yeah, it's custom so it could be pricey, but I think it's beautiful. Better than a std. pearl, IMO.

If u want a really popin color its not white, but i used to have it on my civic, i wanna get my accord painted this color, its Cadillac Redline Pearl, its a red/maroon color then when the light hits it its almost black. It looks alot like Marble effect, that might be hot, pearl white with marble effect

Make your own .. Go to a paint shop grab a nice bright white or whatever & get the same color pearl. You can it in different shapes sizes & powder forms.. Make you own ! Know how much of everything that is used that way color matching won't be a problem. Also same painter helps alot with matching custom colors..

^^ Did you get a TL now?

I like the Lexus SC430 Pebble Beach edition the Lexus white pearl with gold/blue pearl in it. Midnight Blue/Purple (Nissan Skyline R33) colors are also good since at night they are pretty much black, but during the day its a dark blue or purple.
