Something white. These cars look incredible in that color and it was never available (it should have been!)

That's a really big range. Have you at least narrowed it to a family of colors or type of finish? Do you want metallic, non-metallic, or ColorFlow? What is your favorite color? Do you want to make a bold statement? Or be subtle?

Color choice is a very personal and subjective thing. Choose wisely.:D

Also, I wouldn't just choose a color and go with it. Choose several that really speaks to you and get as large a sample color card swatch as you can get to see the lighting effects in real life.

And with your nordkap interior, I would stay away from reds and greens. I would also stay away from grays and blacks because it's not exciting and close to your silver already. I'd consider Sea Breeze Blue, Intense Blue, Frosty Blue, Brilliant Blue, or Magnetic Burst, (pretty much any blue) and maybe even the Light Pistachio (looks like it has a hint of blue or borderline in that green/blue family). I can see orange or yellow family complimenting the blue interior, but may be too bold. But like I said, it's all personal and subjective.

I would do the Venetian red metallic that came on the '99 V70R. That with gunmetal wheels. Or a bronze wheel.

WHITE. NOBODY has a white R (well, there was one that was being done in a wrap but I don't know if I ever saw final).

Seeing as this will be my first wrap I’m leaning towards metallic and non metallic and away from the color flow. I don’t want to be to crazy with the colors but I’m not scared of purple ya know?

As for the white suggestion I really like how it would look in white but mentally I’m like if I am going to spend the money I might as well get a color? Right?

I'm kinda digging that Rushing Riptide Cyan/Purple. I also like the more subtle satin metallic purple.

Yeah, that is one clean and good looking white R. Can't argue with that. I still miss and prefer my flash green metallic and atacama interior.

I do remember that car and looked for it at lunch but couldn't find it.
I watched that video too, so I guess I didn't remember seeing the finished product.
I guess a gloss white! Is pearly an option?
Here is a video featuring that car.

I guess if I were to pick a white which one should I pick??

I’d say saffron for the reverse Sonicama. It’d be a Saffrokap! If I ever wrap mine, that’s what it’s going to be
