A silver car is hard to match colors with, same prob i had, but since i have the 03, which comes with the black interior, unlike the earlier models, which is grey i believe, so i went with a yellow interior, which already doesnt look bad with silver, but you cant see it from the outside since i have dark tints, so it looks real nice in the interior, then the engine, i went wih yellow also, but thats about to be changed, its just too much yellow, im in the process of changing it, dont know if ill paint it gloss black, or buy the carbon fiber replacements!!

I'd go with blue if i have the car. I just like blue(not dark blue, but light like the sky) personally. Nothing against any of the other color you mention. My '00 celi is black and i'm planning to paint the interior and engine bay blue. thumbsup
