Get some of your favorite choices and put up a poll. I love CG neon's, but it all depends on what your going to do with your car in the long run. If you want a stock look go with CG.

Personally, if I were going to spend the $$ to get the car painted I would look into different car company's color's and pick a different one that would make my neon stand out. That's just my personal opinion though.

People can't believe the color of my car is stock. They think its an aftermarket paint.

i vote anything other than CG... just becuase it's a stock color.

If you're going to get it painted, go extreme. :D

Yea um... defentally don't go to the $360.... it cost me about $200 just to get a front bumper painted... I'd be a little worried there.

I looked at all the CG neons here at work, (we have 3 of them in the parking lot) and I don't know why people like them so much... I don't think the color looks that good.

But what do I know... I own a yellow car. :lol:

i know that for 360 im not gonna get a killer paint job but its gonna be 10xs better than i got now. plus i looked at some of the cars and the pic they have there and im willin to take the risk. i remember a while back dan had pics of his buddys car that was painted by maccoo, i think its called maccoo? :lol: but it looked pretty good. we'll just see how it turns out
