    Going against the grain here but a respray imo generally raises alarm bells when coming to sell and often decreases the value, which I think is worth considering when you do it.

    Otherwise out of those two definitely the blue unless you dont mind people calling you a banana as you drive passed . But out of all colours I think I would go for a matt black!

    right iv found out, to get my car resprayed in dakar yellow it will need to be sprayed white first to make sure its the right colour... so = more money
