Question In Need of Help Picking Color Choice... Pics Welcome.

Hi, I was going to put a deposit down on a skyline premium. My main problem is color selection.

The Skyline will primarily be a Garaged vehicle as I currently own a 98 Red/Tan&Black Supra TT Targa 6-spd - Daily Driver 65k mi (Can't part with it, it's 100% OEM stock), 06 Black/Grey Ram SRT-10 - Garaged 7k mi, 07 Black/Grey Jeep Rubicon 10k mi - Daily Driver. I will be selling the Jeep to acquire the Skyline.

I really like The Black color, but my first instict is the Gun Metallic. I also Like the Super Silver. (No Titanium Metallic, Ivory Pearl, Solid Red) I have also found it difficult to find pictures of an actual vehicle in Gun Metallic. Please post any photos of actual gun metallic painted skylines. Thanks

This vehicle will have around 2k miles on it a year or less. Since this car will more likely than not be a collector car in the future with such low mileage would it be stupid or smart to purchase the $3k upgraded super silver paint (The extra $3k isn't much of a problem for me to afford)?

I'm sure you know this but super silver could delay the process of getting your car. So unless you're not in a hurry, that might be another factor to consider.
