New Paint suggestions

Well its time for a new paint job. Currenlty bright yellow, however yellow is not for me. Just wondering what colors really look the best. I really don't care about factory specs. I just want it to look sharp. i have polished svx wheels and the rest of the D90 is trimmed in black. I have searched multiple pictures and am just looking for suggestions.

I'm partial to shades of green or blue. Black, silver and anything metallic seem out of place, although some love em.

Only if you know an orthodontist that would be willing to use her breast for the dots.

That's Arles. I'm not much of a fan of the Dark Greens. They look too Eddie Bauer to me unless they have an olive tint.

If you have the SVX wheels then your truck might not look great with the old school type colors. Maybe try Bonnati Grey or just go White.

Consensus is that Conniston with a White roof is the most rare and valuable of all colors.

I think it was a color for maybe the RR or LR3 here in the US. If not, the LR code should be out there if you google it.

Actually, I think the 04 DII came in Bonnati Grey. You can probably call a dealer and get the code.
