I vote for RS5 blue.

I ended up going dark side again, but RS5 blue looks stunning when sun hits.

Do white plasti dip with glossifier.Wont cost you much and if you do a quality job it should last a while. Im thinking about it just for the heck of it.

I was thinking about plasti dipping the car white too but its going to probably run me 5-600 for all the stuff and equipment, which that money could go into a paint job...

White pearl was my top choice as well
And i havent looked at the rs5 blue yet but will look into it

Maybe you can go in with couple buddies and you all can use the sprayer, just buy your own colors. It will be cheaper for sure.

What's your budget? Even a proper OEM color will run you $3000-4000 to do it right. Color change, add at least $1000. Pearl paints can be really expensive and your proper screwed if you ever get into a wreck and need some of the car repainted. Pretty close to zero chance of getting the repainted areas to match.

True. Another benefit of pearl dip, just peel off and paint the who section again or the whole side
Cant wait to do mine. I dont think anyone on here has a pearl dipped accord, not that i seen it.

i plan on dipping the jams except for the engine bay. You have to be anal with masking, rest is easy. Im assuming doing the jams will be done first so as to not get over spray to the body panels.
