Default New Paint Color...what should I go with IYO?

Within a year I hope to save up to get my car repainted. The last shop who did some paint work on it was unbelievably horrible and unprofessional IMO. I would like there to be a hint of a custom look to it, but not an extremely expensive paint job.

Let me know your thoughts..

I'm thinking Majestic Teal...

It'* different, looking like a different color at varying times of the day and it'* pretty unique.

LOL, I know what you picked

I'm heavily leaning in one direction...I'm curious as to others' opinions on those colors.

I do like that burnt orange color actually. Especially on the C6 Vette. But it'* too in-your- face and I don't want people to know right away it'* an aftermarket paint job. I was also thinking of a royal blue metallic (like the GTS Viper w/ white stripes) but that is too obvious as well. It would go great with the ghetto golds though.
