    I work in an automotive paint place and will be able to get you a specific brand and colour name tomorrow if there's anything you've seen you like - there's only one purple springing to mind at the moment and it's a Ford colour called Thistle Purple - it really is very nice dark and very pearly - I mixed a few litres last year for someone doing a VW Golf and even with the really lousy job they did putting the colour on, it still looked really nice. As for the other options, the nicest of the other colours I've seen would be...

    White - Ford Frozen White (Solid) or if you want pearl - ask to look at some Suzuki Motorcycle colours from the last few Hayabusa years.
    Yellow - Renault Liquid Yellow (see my recent laptop paint job - see sig)
    Grey - VW/Audi Daytonagrau or Peugeot/Citroen Carlinite Grey (Carlinite is the grey in my Antec 900 revamp - see sig)
    Purple - Ford Thistle Purple or Jaguar Indigo
    Blue - Mazda Winning Blue or Fiat Blu Magnetico
    Green - Suzuki Lime Green Pearl (light) or Ford Ultimate Green (super pearly) or Chevrolet Synergy Green (metallic) (see sig)

    Some of those colours (Liquid Yellow, Ultimate Green, Suzuki whites) are three-stage colours - a semi transparent pearly topcoat over a solid groundcoat then cleared so may add to your cost but they really pop)

    I actually have most of these colours here at home because when I come across a colour I really like at work, I mix myself a half-litre and bring it home just in case I ever want that colour on a case heh...

    Wow, I've never seen that car before. Looks like a Toyota Paseo and a Mazda MX-3 had a baby. I liked both those cars, and the Sera has a really nice look to it.

    I always wanted to get a Mitsubishi FTO, but that car is long and weighty compared to that one. I like it.

    Anyway, I always wanted a black and purple car. Doing that like the green one, with the top black, with the rest a deep purple would be sweet.

    I like the Nissan Blue. However.. it's too plain. I would put some pearl in the first coat of clear if I shot it. Just a bit though. Enough to give it that little something extra. After the second coat of clear, I would spend about 2 weeks airbrushing the hell outta some graphics, and then back in the booth for 3 more coats of clear, then wet sand and buff.

    Don't know if you considered it, but I think that Sera would look awesome in Go ManGo! or Hemi Orange (from the '06 and '08 Dodge Charger Daytona, respectively). Going from the list you provided, I'd lean toward the green.

    The new Hemi Orange is a nice enough colour, but if you're headed for Orange, I'd really consider the 68 version of Hemi Orange - its a lot more, well orange - the new one is redder when you look at them side by side.

    For a better idea of the "old" hemi orange - thats the colour of the General Lee (again, see my sig lol)

    I'm voting white. Plain white is too muted, but it could be set off very well with some black accents.

    I like the green.
