Laguna Blue Pearl vs Apex Blue Pearl

Hey Guys! My EG will be painted tomorrow. I'd like to have a blue color and black hood, roof, and tail gate. But...
Im thinking between Laguna Blue Pearl (http://www.s2ki.com/s2000/uploads/ga...1133785794.jpg) and Apex Blue Pearl (http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4040/...efc7590afc.jpg)
I wanted to get your opinion here in RS. Which one will suit my Honda EG?

Thanks sooo muchhhho! )

Generally I like the Laguna blue better, but I think Apex would suit the EG nicely.
To each his own, it's your car and your decision in the end

Apex Blue is such a nice color. That would be my pick.

Isn't it too Girl-ish looking for a guy? I mean the Apex Blue.

S2000 CR is not a girly car. Its a very unique shade of blue.

Apex Blue Pearl looks absolutely beautiful on the CR but, in my opinion, it wouldn't suit the EG very well. I had an EG and have a S2000 currently and I've always thought the EG looked best with a darker shade (of any color really). On the other hand, like others have said, it is your car and it is ultimately up to what you like best.

P.S. I hope you are flexible with your color choice, I'm sure you are aware that there are many many pictures out there of EGs with custom paint; explore your options, find some inspiration, and you might find another color you like better instead of OEM colors. Hope the paint job turns out well!

Darker Shade is also what Im thinking. Plus, Im also getting my hood, roof and tail gate painted black. I guess that would match a darker shade of blue?

Thank you!
