Since I am getting new 6gc that is going to have the 99 5sfte engine out of my old 5gc I am going to have it painted. I Love the color RED but with the 6gc I have now I get pulled over like crazy just bc it stands out so I was thinking to go Black with metallic. What do you all think? Just trying to get some input..right now it stands as the sea blue but isnt my fav color. All the work and paint is being done by JDMTuning (presure2).

I say go for it, can't go wrong with black, the shine on it when taken care of is amazing. A member here painted his 5th gen either dark gray or black porsche metallic it looked pretty good.

I'd go black. Sliders right, you can't go wrong with black. Although I think the blue looks amazing.

Black looks good, if you wash it every day. Otherwise it sucks.

Sorry to get off topic. Any news on the bumper & battery tie down shipping costs? I PMed you last week. Let me know, thanks.

edit: by the way here's a metallic black 5th gen: http://www.celicatech.com/forums/showthread.php?t=824 I'd probably check out the paint in person before choosing, just check out auto manufacturer sites and see which cars are offered in metallic black then just hit up the dealerships. Since sometimes the cars will look different in pictures than in person.

One idea -- black with a coloured metallic touch, where the flakes are a red or blue. Gives the coat amazing depth and real character, particularly when the light is sharp and at an angle.

I think the blue stands out more, black is too typical
