Adding a little color.

Hey guys, I need some input. I am thinking about adding a little color to my car. I was thinking about painting the calipers and the mesh in the upper grill, and a vinyl sticker on the window all in the same color. (My car is black)
My boyfriend thinks that is too much. I'd like to hear your opinions, aswell.

Also, I have no idea what color to use. I've considered white, red, yellow, blue, lime and hot pink.

Personally, I think the grilles would be a little much. But doing the calipers and a decal, would look fine. Any colour goes with black.

Do hot pink calipers, arrowheads and G6 badge overlays. It would look good on black and it will keep your BF from driving your car!

Left a 421RWHP 2004 GTO, but honestly loving the G6 GT coupe!

Past Pontiacs
87' white Firebird(sold)
01' green Grand Am SE2(traded for the 03')
03' orange Grand Am SC/T(totaled)
04' blue GTO(traded for the G6)

Current Pontiacs
00' tan Montana(I swear, its the wife's)
06' black G6 GT Coupe

Just putting it out there. If you paint the grille a color that matches your other color accents. It's not to difficult to paint back to black if you don't like it. It'd be interesting to see what that would look like.



Performance
CRABS o3, Custom Magnaflow Exhaust, WAMS Performance tune, Racingline STB

Exterior
Platinum Apex Rims (18x8), Hankook v2 215/45R18, Painted calipers (Red), Complete debadge , Handle Overlays (Gloss Black), Arrow Overlays (Gloss Black), Grille Lighting (White LED's), Tinted Tails (2 coats VHT Niteshades), Painted Battery Cover (Silver with Red), Painted Engine Cover (Silver with Red), Eagle Eyes Projector Headlights (Black Housing), Upper Recessed Grilles (Chrome)

Audio
2 12" Memphis Subs (15-MCP12S4)
600watt Sony X-plod Amp

Thats kind of my thought.

I'm going to paint them something anyway, they have some kind of discoloration on them in spots.

I think I'm leaning more towards the green but I'm not sure what to use. Caliper paint doesn't come in that color, and I want it to stay on.
