Black or White...new paint job

my car is getting a paint job soon, and i have narrowed down my choice to black and white. Yall have any suggestions? my car is originally black...

and for the white paint job, i wouldnt paint my car all white...white color will only be painted through out the body of the car...with a fresh black paint for the top(or roof) of the car, kinda like the JDM style...

my car is a 240sx...

thank you for your positive comments!

I personally love black and think it looks great on any car, but since your car is originally black you might be kinda tired of it and might want a little change. If you like how the black looks, go for it, if you think you want something different then it cant hurt to go white.

never mind the paint job you should have asked if you should get a new car, but then we all know the answer to that one

I like dark colors for all cars. White shows dirt too easily. I'd go with a dark blue or something but I say black.

actually if you live in a dry area like out west white would be better, black shows dust more and absorbs heat. I used to have a white S10 and it hardly showed dirt at all.

I want to get my car painted. (As you can see its an ugly tan) I was thinking like a royal or darker blue. So since this is sorta about painting cars..what do you all think my car would look the best color in?

White and Black, both great choices. I like the idea of the white car and black top. Here's my look on things, my civic is white with black GSR leather seats. When I get in it , the heat inside the car is not as bad as the heat coming from the seats ( i know, part of it has to do with the leather). My civic has never gotten as hot as my moms Gold Camry. What Im trying to say is white helps a lot. My cousin has an all black Durango with dark black tints and hopping into his truck after its been in the sun for an hour is hell on earth. I would say go with integra type r white paint. It looks great on my EG-6!!!

Although black does pretty much work for every single car, I think it's getting worn out. I say go with white, it'll be fresh.

I say black, not a big fan of white cars. I think it'll be awesome if you mix it little, some black some white, then it'll be unique and look awesome.
