What colour ??

Hey guys I having a tough decision. Going to change the colour of my boxster using vinyl wrapping my car just now is dark blue with blue hood and blue leather interior.
Was wondering what you guys think would be a good colour to go with the interior
Thanks all input appreciated

Thanks ddb
Was thinking of doing it pearl white I wanted to spray my wheels black and wrap the mirrors and vents in carbon fibre but my problem would be the hood I could dye black but still have blue interior which a don't think would go

That flat grey looks awesome!

Flat blue (old school Audi S4 or Civic SI blue) would go very well also. Go to the Maserati site and they are offering a flat blue option on the Gran Turismo MC...very sharp!
