Need everyones advice PLEASE!!!

Okay so after all my major mods are complete I have decided to paint my car I don't want to do a wrap as I don't find it appealing as paint. I need help choosing a color.
Here is what she looks like currently (For those that don't already know)

If you want to go all the way ///M then choose one of the three colors of the ///M logo.

Well since it all ready kinda looks like an M3 GTS might as well go the orange route, no? I think it would look bad-ass!

Considering you have the best looking 1///M in the globe IMO, I wouldn't tinker with perfection. With that said, I know what its like to have the bug bite and want to take the already good masterpiece one level up (although at some point you get diminishing and in fact negative marginal returns and end up with something worse than you started with, AC Schnitzer car being a good example ).

To me, any of the blues work, I actually love the wrap on all 3 cars we have seen (the blue, the matt grey, and orange). Considering how good all 3 came out, I would prefer the wrap over the paint, because there will be areas you will not be able to reach and you'll see the white. Assuming you are as anal as me, and the near perfectionist it seems you are, consider if that is something you can live with. If you go with paint, and they remove the windshields (even tho most shops won't), perhaps perfect time for the real CF Revo roof.

PS: I think a lot of people will vote for blue partly because of the psychological factor of lusting after something that was not given to you/you couldn't have. Imagine if we had blue among the three factory options (along with VO an BSM) but not white. I can certainly bet you would have considered a white in the above options. (as an example, the B7 RS4 sold in the US did not come in white, and you had to pay $3K for Exclusive paint option, and all you got was the same non-metallic color as sold on every bland A4, and there were a good amount of people that paid for that!) It's in our nature to want something we can't have

Dakar yellow is nice but I feel its too pale and wouldnt go as nice with the blacked out CF bits on your car ..

Porsche Speed Yellow is more like it !

EDIT : or even better, Atakama Yellow !

If you are doing the cf roof, I'd stick with aw. It complements the cf roof the best in my opinion. I thought of going that route too with the raze overlay, but I decided to go exhaust instead.

Agree with CF roof, it should have came that way from the factory ! But as for a change of colour no way, your car is awesome just put the cherry on the cake with the CF roof.
