Question Wrapping Color

Morning,

I have a 2015 all white 1.6 HDI that is booked in to have it's roof and wing mirrors wrapped middle of next month. My question is what's everyone's opinion on a decent colour to go with? Initially my thoughts are a shade of red but I'm open to suggestions.

Over to you.

Phil

It's a very personal thing, if I say blue, and you hate blue, what's the point?

I agree it’s a totally personal decision.

Years ago I had an Escort Estate in blue. I sprayed the lower half in a light metallic blue (I was doing spraying at a pofessional level then) however, when I came to sell the car the trade in was reduced as I was told that I had devalued the car by the change which is why I said white. Any modification will increase insurance premiums and if you do not tell the insurance company they may decide to void any claim made.

II appreciate its a totally personal thing, of course it is, but what do others consider to be a good colour to offset a completely white car? I wasn't looking for someone to tell me what colour to wrap it, merely personal opinions as to what their choice would be.

Surely the art of debate and conversations isn't quite dead yet is it?

The thing is that pretty much any colour will go with white. Red, blue, orange, green, pink, purple, black will all look good. Only colour I can think of that probably won't would be yellow.
According to the DS4 brochure, Citroen's choice would be blue.

White's very neutral so will go with any colour

As your car is white already it would be red for me but not too bright.
