After having had my car in the panel beater having the rust repaired (lets not talk about the quantity, at least its gone now), the guys have asked me what colour I want to paint it.
Its currently the standard Deep Aqua, but because the front doors, bonnet, front guards and boot have all been repaired, it'll be fairly easy to paint it another colour.
The problems I face is these:
I can't get the engine bay painted a different colour because they'd have to pull the engine and that just isn't going to happen.
I think I might get annoyed if everytime i open the bonnet and somebody says, 'how come the engine bays a different colour'.
And secondly, although I intend to keep the car for some time, will the car have a better resale value if it is the original colour or doesn't it matter?
What do you reckon, same again or different colour?
I thought I might add a silver pearl to the original colour just to make it different, OR I don't mind the Mid metallic blue available on the BA's (not blueprint)
To see the Aqua colour visit here: Now an XB Pilot

Also, if you don't agree with my colour choice, let me know what you reckon is a cool colour and if you can provide an exmaple that would be great.
