I'm in need of a colour theme for my car. Previously I had a pleasing black and green, but now I have a different car where the standard interior light (Dials, stereo and switches) is orange(ish).

The car is metallic grey with anthracite alloys and the accent colour is what I'll use for interior and exterior styling - but I'm not sure what to go for? Any comments are greatly appreciated!

Here's the car: http://www.flickr.com/photos/60494779@N08/5513387751/

So you are keeping the grey mettalic paint on the outside then? Carbon fibre looks stunning against this so I'd probably just blitz it with some tasteful carbon fibre parts.

Ahead of you on that one! I'm looking to purchase carbon fibre vinyl and wrap the bottom of the bumper underneath the lower grill but only the thin part (between the fogs). I'll also the spoiler and the rear bumper has a plastic insert (like a diffuser) which I intend to wrap.

Not sure about the wing mirrors though - might be overkill.

I've decided to skin the spoiler and parts of the bumper (rear diffuser and under the grille on the front bumper) in carbon fibre (real) and match the interior. I'm just worried that it would be over the top: with CF handbrake, gearknob, parts of the centre console, pillar trim and dial housing.

I feel a massive photoshop session coming on! :cheesy:

I do like this decal: http://photos02.otomoto.pl/photos/original/C10/01/82/C10018285_1.jpg

From the Micra R, but not sure how it would match up with my car being a darker grey :confused:
