I'm going to get my GT painted in the off season and I know what general color I want, I'm just having trouble deciding what exact color I want. So far my favorites are "Hot Lava" and "Sunburst Orange Metallic" What do you think? Any others I may have missed? Now that I'm looking at car colors, I sure see a lot more of the copper colors out there.

1) 2103 Scion FR-S "Hot lava"



2) 2004 Nissan Maxima "Radiant Ember"



3) GM "Sunburst Orange Metallic"



4) Dodge "Copperhead Pearl"



5) Nissan Murano "Sunlit Copper Metallic"

Does the Charger have some of that 'color shift' thing going on? I hate that crap! If the WHOLE car would appear to be different colors from different angles, that would be cool. When it looks like the hood is blue, the top is black and the doors are purple, it looks like crap.

Judging strictly by the way the photos appear on my screen, I think the Hot Lava paint pops more.

#2 and #5 look like variations of brown to me.

I like the Dodge 'Copperhead' color best out of those.

Ford had that color shift thing going on for awhile in the 90s; I'm thinking of red T-Birds mostly. Maybe others too. They always looked faded to me, even brand new.

I vote for the Scion color.

the copperhead orange or the hot lava on the scion. I not seeing blue or any off coloration on the chargers paint, it looks like darker tones of orange with a pearl coat.

I'm liking the Hot Lava color more and more. I really like that color with the matte dark grey wheels, maybe 19's.
