Default Should I do it???

Painting the Z a completely different color... But wanted to do something "Different"... Theres a million silver Z's out there and i want to seperate myself. I considered a super pearl white metallic but again theres a million of those as well.. This is the color im considering. Also if you guys have suggestions on other rare colors let me know im open to ideas!

First: Lambo's LP640'S Grigio Telesto (My fav)

What kind of tones in color are you looking?

If I had the chance to repaint my car I would go with Lexus Blue.

i like that color but im gearing more towards neutral colors i'll keep it in mind though. this would definately be easier to come across since i dont see many lambo dealers around here lol

brilliant yellow and orange are pretty scarce on any car not saying I would paint mine any of those. Im currently getting my whole Z repainted and Im sticking with the stock PPW cause I love the color so much. So I might nto be the right person to give suggestions about painting the car another color, heh.

saw you were looking for more of a neutral color, I'd say that lambo in the first pic would be a distiguishing color to put on your Z.

Geez Thomas, you gonna actually drive that car or let it take up space in body shops lol. Put some GO on that thing instead of more SHOW. J/k, but that lambo color may look alright but wont appeal to everyone. That blue though is awesome.

Thomas, post a pic of your car and let the PS experts go at it. This will give you an idea of what you like the best. I agree with Tim, when are you ever going to drive her(she is always in the shop for something)

so you acknowledge that there are a million silver Z's out there and your way to 'stand out' is to pick a different shade of silver?

why not go with something not even remotely touched by a stock Z?

no go for me.
