    Colour ??

    Alright what kind of colour do you think i should go for on my Mk4 sXi ?

    I can either go all Navy blue, full respray in black ,get a kinda flip paint.

    I am thinking flip paint atm but i dunno if it will make the car look tacky, insights and views very helpful.

    Any suggestions for colour or paints etc aswell.

    shouldnt be too difficult lol

    only joking - can look good on the right car

    as for the colour - i always think if your going to the expense of a full respray then get something a bit different, navy blue or black are standard colours.

    lol.

    Yeh i'm looking at some sort of a flip paint becuase it is different and the car zone 2 kit is kinda standard. It will be sitting on 17" 6 spokes, lowered bout 35-40mm.

    I want a decent kit but i dont like the reiger kit anymore. Car Zone 2 out of the ones i have seen so far is best for my taste.

    Each to their own :P

    What colour is your car at present? have you thought about a subtle layer of flakes that will catch passing peoples eyes as they walk past.

    The green to purple flip has been done to death. Last week, driving back to work through Hamilton town centre, I saw the flippy Corsa C (Scottish lads will know the one I mean). Literally 100 yards down the road I saw another small, jap-kitted hatch (cannot for the the life of me remember what kinda motor it was, Pug 206 perhaps) going the same way.

    Time for something fresh and new methinks. Don't ask me for any ideas at the mo' cause my heads been up my backside all day. No imagination just now, need a good kip.
