    what style are you going for? euro oem etc?

    If you was going a euro/cleaned route id say blue as you can use that colour with interior colours,

    my mod list is as follows (in no perticular order)

    Lowered 45mm
    18" Singa alloys or maybe twin top or maybe 18" tiptronic (was a factory option)
    tan leather interior re trim
    gsi front bumber all smoothed
    boot lock removed and smoothed
    full car pc system - updated audio

    thats all i got at the momement but really subtle but unique

    What colour you doing the wheels?

    If you done them the same colour as the leather either colour could pull it off but imo blue

    If you have the time to clean it all the time get black as they look great clean.

    I think you've already answered your own question in the first post.

    personally i'd say europa blue. but then again i'm biased :P

    i just think its a more interesting and unique colour than black, plenty of black cars out there but pearlescent blue is something you dont see every day. i think it's one of the nicest colours vauxhall have done, arguably nicer than arden blue IMO, and certainly less common.

    more common on the coupes though, have a look through the site and you'll see it's easily the most common coupe colour.

    Definetly black. I'd look at the oxblood leather too - that is by far and away my favourite colour combination for the Coupe. Its very easy to make a Coupe this colour look amazing with just a few mods, whereas on one a different colour, you might not get the same effect. I really want a black Coupe!
