that depends on how long you want it to look good. those cheap paint jobs you see advertised use cheap paint and no preparation work, preparation work is critical for a good quality paint to stick on the car for several years. Also, any time you change the color, you add hours of preparation work to tape off the door jams, the trunk and hood, and parts of the interior. Its best and cheaper by 500 to 600 dollars to paint it the same color. because usually the insides of the doors and the trunk and hood, the sun has not messed up the paint and it still looks good.

dark colors are more difficult to lay down, and take more time. If you are going to keep this car for a long time, then do what you want, but if you are going to trade it in in six months or a year, just repaint it the original color it will look great, and you can make sure to get a black car for your new car. And you make your money go farther.

something else to consider, pay to have minor body damage repaired, and any trim peices that are cracked or broken, or worn, plan on replacing. worn and damaged trim, looks worse next to fresh paint.

It helps to find a paint and body shop that is clean and well organized, talk to friends and family, find a place that does a good job, that will talk and help you understand, a few extra hundred, for good quality paint, and the proper labor for preparation and body work, and your car will come out looking fantastic.
