I am getting a new paint job in a few weeks and wondering what color I should make it or should I keep it silver? I want something that will go with my intior that is black with bits of gray, red, and blue. I want to make the new paint color Yellow but, I want some opinions on it I will probably but a new color on it in 2-3 years(after the new paint job) to make it a show car (I hope). Well any suggestions will be cool and thought about after it's painted I will post pictures of it.

man get your car painted a different color will cost some $$$, i woudl stay with the rare silver color i love the color on the 6. look at some different shades of silver, in that i mean like a different car's silver. as for the int. if you are going to make it a show car then get your int. done up or do it yourself like i did. the int is the coolest part of the ride, i love to see what everyodys has in there. later })

Yo that yellow will tight!!!!! but as an alternate how about a deep metallic purple that would surely set your ride apart from other mx6's. but it would have to be real dark purple

err I still don't know what color I really want yellow, but want to stay with silver( I'm scared i won't like it) as far as dark purple I've thought of that and actuly might do that but, I want a bright flashy color on my 6, If I do yellow I will change it back to silver in 2 years to a "show class" paint job.

oh man if your are going to just change the paint in a few years I would just leave the silver you have unless it really needs to be painted. because if you are going to keep changing it that will cost you some coins. But if you are going to do it make it grand and go with something wild

that is it for now, but i will paint the entire back dash white and the front part where the tweater are white, and the door( not the black leather stuff just all around it) that then i will be done with that. talk to me on AOL IM if u want some details on how i did it.

I painted my sixer with Lamborghini Blue pearl. It's black, it's blue, it's purple, depending on light. Like it a lot.

This is what I think.....

I think you should keep it Silver. However, add a little something different into the paint in order to make it a little off silver. What I'm planning on doing with MY silver MX6 is add a few coats of pearl on it so that it will look silver at angles and it will look like a pearlish silver on different angles. That way I don't have to have the rest of the car re-painted like the engine compartment and hinges etc....
