You painting everything? If you arent doing the engine bay, door jambs, etc, I would stick with white. If you are doing it all I would go with black.

Unless you want to spend a ton of extra money, its best to keep it stock color. Otherwise the whole thing has to be stripped, inside and out, to paint all the door jambs, in the engine compartment, ect. WAY more money

Exactly. IMO it looks terrible when someone has a nice paint job only to open their hood/doors and see a different color.

Actually I think that'd be kinda cool... Like a black exterior that kinda fades into white when you pop the hood or open a door.

If your re painting and its a cheap job, when its washed the color that it was if you change color is going to be visible, due to poor workmanship, ( not prepped properly ) stay with the white, I'de say a decent job same color would run you $5500, more if a color change and its done right!

Agreed with others above that it is best to keep the same color, unless you are willing to strip it all the way. One option is if you do a two-tone where white is one of the colors, then it does not matter if the inside is white.

One of the members here painted his truck Titanium Silver - That is baddass. Similar to the OEM silver but just a little more silver (less gray) - not sure how to explain it. Anyway, let's say more sparkly.
