Default Sick EK hatch colors!

My car was in an accident last night. The accident was bad enough that the car will be repainted after its all repaired, my question is what color should I paint it. The car was silver and I really liked it but I want my car to stand out a bit more, I hope you guys have some good suggestions, Id like to keep the car very clean looking.

The first colors that come to mind are RSX-S blue, Silverstone metallic and some sort of Lexus red. If anybody has some other suggestions and pictures that would be great, thanks!!!

I dont want Yellow, does anybody know of a nice green color, that would be different.

What car is the silverstone metallic from, someone else painted their civic this color also, and it didn't look too pretty. I vote vogue metallic silver.

Silverstone metallic is from the S2000 and also the Odyssey. Im not a big fan of Midori Green, its just too light for me, If I get it green it will have to be something with a deeper tone!

Well it was brought to my attention that I have to paint my car the same color that it allready was... Vogue Silver Metalic, I allready like the color but I just wanted something flashier. The reason I cant paint my car any other color is because the engine bay and all other parts not on the immediate exterior of the car would still be silver and two colors on a car would look ridiculous so Im sticking with the VSM but it will be brand spanking new paint so I cant complain!!!
