So I have been kicking around different ideas for a lot of different aspects of my car, one of which is the paint job. I have an uncle who owns an auto body and paint shop that I am pretty sure would do any paint job I want for a better deal than the average customer.<br>While I am not going to get a paint job within the next 6 months, I am thinking of having it done within the next year or so, as my wallet permits. I have other mods I am giving priority. I just like planning out my ideas so I know what it will take to complete them and the overall cost.<br>I think this is one of the top contending colors: what do you think? Oh, and in case anyone has a Bentley Continental lying around that they would like to give me, I do have a kidney I would trade for it. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"><br> <IMG SRC="http://www.motorauthority.com/content/thumbs/m/a/mansory_bentley_continental_gt_speed_002-0304-950x650.jpg" BORDER="0">

Hmm.. I dunno about this one AJ. I only find Matte black really good on supercars and high high status cars. Plus I am very sure it's not the best paint for everyday driving.

Re: (kpsingh0)

The reason I think I like the matte type paint jobs so much is that there is basically no reflection and it shows the true lines of cars better. I figure since everyone I have ever met likes the lines of new Volvos, the S40 especially, that this would make the car even better looking.

agreed. i thing the green stripe are alittle to rice like. If you stick with the matte black you will retain the "murdered out" look. and that equals cool just look at rob & big. cool.

So the plot thickens. I have a pretty reputable shop in my area that quoted me a smokin' hot deal on a flat black paint job...they even just did a 69 Camaro this last week matte black, so I have something to look at in person. They even invited me down to their shop to check out their other work. I think I am going to drive on down there in the next day or so. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (greencow)

I agree, but I think if done right it will look sick on an S40 as well due to the strong shoulders and my future plans. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">
