    Guys, how important is to stay with factory colors? I think mine was off white with black interior, but I like red interior much better. Do you do what you like or you trying to stay sock? Thank you

    Your car, your color. That's my theory.

      On a real high dollar car - think Hemicuda or Superbird for example- does make a huge difference. As cmac64dart said, your car your color.

        On any "lesser" car it really doesn't affect the value. Any rare/desirable car it will affect value.

            I end up buying white single stage “fleet” paint from sherwin Williams and some different colorants (black, red yellow) and mixed my own color that looks ivory, looks good to me ..
