Samarkand Blue, Dark Blue or Silver are IMO the best colours for a 406.

Silver is a great colour. It might be dirty as hell, but stand back a bit and it will still look clean. Light metallic blues are the same.
Black is a cure punt to keep clean, as is white.

Prologue, if your respraying your car - its best you decide. Its going to be you thats driving about it it!

Car modifying is all about individuality - not what other people think (or at least thats the way I see it! :P )

and besides, if you go for white, you could build a Taxi replica! lol :D

Nick
Thanks,
Nick

Hey Nick, "Taxi replica!" :cry:

I seen that car in Taxi movie...

But in Thailand (My country) and Japan white Europe car is very popular. You can see white BMW, Merc, Audi and also supercar such as Ferrari, Lamborghini etc. in white too!

Anyway, "Taxi replica" is make me to sit thinking about "white" again

Don't spray it white!! What are you thinking? It will look like a complete taxi!

Get it sprayed black. The best colour for a 406 - emphasises its sleek lines and gives it a more mature kind of aggression.

Go for Black .....

Black will go easily with VIP look if you gonna modify your car to look glossy and sleek. Chrome wheels, window tint, lowered suspension.

But depends on your taste, you could go for white with a racing look, big wings, body kit and lotsa stickers.

That's my opinion. hope it helps your decision.

Oh yeah, one more thing. White might get kinda 'yellowish' if the paint job or the bottom base coat work was crap. :cheesy: so you might want to reconsider that too.
Cars, Computers, Chicks, 3C for a complete life. add a number 6 between them then you get double pleasure. hahaha!

Thanks, everyone. Now I decide to respray my car in "Jet Black" (black with no metallic) how about it? It cheaper than "Zero Black" (in other word... super black?)
