Orange or Black????????

So I need some opinions on what I should do when I go to paint. I found that it is not much more to get the whole car painted then it is to match the bumpers and side skirts to the "special" orange. Since the car was originally black and the engine bay is still black....plus the orange needs to be repainted in some spots (kinda a diy job) I was looking in to either going back to stock black or keeping it orange. What does everyone think? Stay orange or go black???
~thanks

Black.

Get OEM Honda Granada Black(3rd gen black color). It has gold flakes in it, looks amazing when the sun hits it.

How about Black with an orange pearl?

I was leaning more towards black and I think I will have to check out the 3g black sounds pretty I am kinda on a budget so doing anything crazy will have to wait, although the black with orange pearl could be nice at a latter point

Wow so I guess majority rules haha well I am taking it tomm to get an estimate. So here is another question...what is the max I should pay for paint? Just the out side, the door jams, and trunk; the engine is already black.
~Thanks for all the input
