I always like the Grigio on the 4G TL it has a slight hint of purple. I ended up with Polished Metal Metallic shines great when the sun hits it. If it was me I would pick Grigio out of the 3 above first and then Cosmic Blue Metallic, they are all subtle colors really anyways so you can't go wrong with any. Good luck.

That Cosmic Blue is doooope and it would look great on a Vigor!

Do it!!

The others are grey and though attractive, a little boring.

I like your original oem colour, imo it's rare and looks like a different colour at different times of the day, plus you won't have to paint jams, of the ones you have there I'd go with grigio as it's a richer more complex colour.

But, if youre up for it, I'd suggest Granada Black Pearl. The gold flake at night is gorgeous and Honda dropped it by the late 90s for nighthawk which isn't as special and way more common.

Carbon Grey Pearl (TSX)
Deep Green Pearl (TSX)

IIRC, that has some lovely hints of green - a MUST for a Vigor!

I think those are both solid choices (greys or dark greens) - I'm glad you eliminated the bright blue option as I don't think I'd go with a classy luxury sedan vibe of that era.

My 06 TSX is Carbon Grey Pearl - my wife's MDX Girigio Grey - I love both and think both would look slick, mean, classy etc.

I feel like the Carbon Grey Pearl has a bluish hue or flake to it - whereas the Girigio has what seems like a brownish hue/flake to it in certain lighting. Now depending on the light sometims I think I prefer my wife's grey to mine. It's a toss up - both were the colors I sought out when car shopping and I still think both are great.

If I can throw another color into the mix I like the really deep dark green (I don't have the proper name) they used in the 1994 Legend coupe (my aunt had that car back in the day).

You're right, the CGP does have a blue hue which is why I love it so much! The DGP is a bit more mysterious but not as exciting as the CGP.

I likely will go with CGP since it's the only one I keep thinking hard about. I love how the color looks in overcast.

Silver is nice if you want dust and fine dirt/grime hidden or if you don't wash your car religiously. If you wash your car religiously then a darker color like CGP is nice and will give you great satisfaction when shined up but without the dirt-magnet effect of black.

Love the look of these Vigors and Legends and your individual touches (lowering it and adding TL rims) seems to modernize the look and up the sport quotient quite a bit. I love your subtle mods and like Jeff said your dedication to the car is impressive. Good work!
