    for me i would go with an completely different colour, maybe some thing from the e90 or e46 range, but if i have to pick one of the two i would go for the yellow, but i would say Chas its up to you mate not easy
    as you like blue this is the one i would go with would look

    I would go with the estoril blue

    Very nice colour besides I think the yellow is nice also but could get bored of it

    hi chasman, the ladys do prefer the blue.. i like the blue. if you want to stand out from the rest then the yellow. it would be easier to find in a car park.. lol go with what you feel..

    How about a colour similar to Gaps E46?

    Orange

    Having said that, I'm not sure what Raffas plans are regarding that route?

    i have been to my mates garage (shed more like)
    he said for a respray in any "standard colour" will be £1500ish depending how many dents he will have to fix as iv got 4 dents on the bonnet where a metal bar hit it whilst driving down the M20
    and has tiny rust spot on the bottom of the drivers door and passenger rear arch so im thinking more like £2000 and iv managed to get him to do the door shuts and boot for that price, but seen people getting quotes for £3k...

    im not having the engine bay sprayed as i can do this myself and wont need to take the engine out if im carefull (can just take the manifold off and mask the engine and steering rack etc) wasnt going to do this BUT after looking at it, its a matt finish anyway and to be fair it aint a good paint job under the bonnet so i rekon ill be able to get a better result than standard anyway

    that colour is one of the best colours ever BUT thats going to cost alot... mind you im going to keep the car for years to come so if im going to do it, its got to be right

    was looking at white with a blue pearl flip today, it looks lovely but theres only a few garages i trust to do it right

    Chas is it a re-spray you've got your heart set on? Have you not considered getting her wrapped?
