If your paint job is just hazy, cloudy, or not shiny, then just go to the professional detailer and have it polished and waxed. It will be loads cheaper.

If there are spider webbing, cracks, nicks, and damage, then I would recommend the OEM color. Painting it a different color will lower the resale value and look crappy since only the exterior will be a different color.

What kind of damage are you noticing with your paint job? Maybe it just needs a good clay bar and some polishing and waxing. some good old elbow grease!

I know my paint job as a crap ton of scratches in the clear coat, swirls and all. Once the spring rolls by I'll spending a whole day buffing the hell out of it.
