Cant decide on colour for BBK

Getting my BBK painted and wanted to do orange. Cant decide after seeing a members car to do Lamborghini Arancio Orange or BMW fire M3 GTS fire orange?

I haven't seen either in person but I want a brighter colour, Opinions or photos of anyone who has em done?

Much appreciated.

If you must do orange I would say you must do Fire Orange!

Heres some pics I scavenged online of the two differences. I suppose the first pic is Fire Orange and the second is Lamborghini Arancio.

Thanks for the opion Powerbeast but I hope thats not a biased opinion lol

I say Fire Orange to stand out big time
Or Yellow to still look good but not as flashy

Orange doesn't look too bad.
Any loud color will look good on SSII: Florescent Green, yellow, etc..

I was thinking about green but I think that would be a little over the top even more so than orange unless someone can post a pic on a SS. Or a photoshop would be nice. My skills suck bad.
