Default Um, repaint?

I've got a 2000 Legacy Sedan, stock everything (no spoiler). I've been thinking about getting it repainted, I've damaged the paint a bit (uhm, no racing on dirt roads with Eclipses anymore mmmkay?). It's currently Sea Mist Green, but I've been thinking that black would look better on this car. Or white.

I think blue or black would be best for you. A normal paint job isnt too expensive, but you have to remember the door jamps and engine bay and such. Having a white car and green engine bay would be kinda weird.

I'm all about my Black Granite Pearl paint. With the sun behind you, you can see a maroon metallic color in there.

There's a good place in town to get it repainted, they basically take the body work off and grind it down to bare metal and put all new paint on it. Or they can just mask everything off and paint it, but that leaves green in the doorjams and such. But it's less expensive. Which way to go? Or I could take it to a cheapo place that uses spray cans...
