    Looks like it should be on it's way to a paint booth. I can understand flatblack/primer look if you were building a rat-rod or didnt want much money tied up into, but if you had it done by a pro I'm sure it cost a pretty penny anyway....I just dont get it.

    It's so you can get some sidewalk chalk and create a different pastel look each month. I think if I ever get the disposible income to repaint the car (never or lottery) I'd go for yellow or green, or something like my avatar.

    I see the beauty in this car. It has a stealthy, race car look. It looks purpose built with almost the illuminescent glow of graphite.

    It also seems to accentuate the curves of the car, making it look more aggressive. The only thing I would recommend is lower it some and black out the wheels. That would be all you need to do to finish the exterior.

    Edit: Oh yeah, and get some wheel spacers too, the wheels look too far inside of the wheel well, especially the rears.

    I am not a fan of the look because they all looks spray painted to me.

    It reminds me of my friend's friend's Honda civic that was litterally spray painted dark blue. The texture of the paint was the best part. So bumpy, it was almost like sand paper. Now your car doesn't look anything like the bad paintjob he had but I just got reminded of it when I saw your pics.

    The car looks nice but it isn't my style so of course I will be a bit bias against it.
