Alan, it boils down to the fact that no-one on here can tell you what colour to paint your car. It is your car after all.

So paint it whatever colour you would like it to be.

I believe that a factory Medici Blue Elan is a pretty rare thing, and a great colour, so I personally would go with Medici, but it does depend on what you like... Would it be terribly rude for me to suggest that you paint it in Medici blue, come to hate it, and then sell it to me for a very low price...? yeah, I thought so. ;-)

Medici blue is indeed a lovely colour and I can confirm Pevensey bay is a most strange place.

I have 3 options for my S3 colour: Carmen red (original colour), cirrius white and Medici blue. I like the 3 colours but I need to choose one.
Any advise?

From a practical point of view the darker the colour the more any imperfections will show.
