    Your car, your choice. You bought the car to enjoy, so do what makes you happy. Here comes the "however" part. However, if it were my Z, I'd stick with the 918.

    I changed the color on my Z once and regretted it - went back to original color after a few years.

    "ditto" I changed the color on mine in 97 and am now wishing I left it original in more ways than one.

    I have a 240z with the 918 code paint and 1969 GTO Judge with Carousel Red paint, which is the same as the Chevrolet Hugger Orange. There is not that much of a difference and I get asked at shows why I painted them the same color. I see no reason to change from the original 918 unless you wanted something completely different.
