If you want green go for Metallic Forest.
I'd rather go for Metallic Guinnes.
Both are stunning colors and original too!

Cheers Dan

When I took mine to be painted I didn't choose, but still wish I did , a lovely house of candy rootbeer paint. I've seen a couple bikes done in this and it looks amazing, but does need big tubes to really show it off.

But I'll also say the Matt green should look nice and utilitarian too. Plus maybe not as attractive to those folks with light fingers.

I have to admit that I quite like it orange as you originally got it... Very cool and I am sure it will look great with whatever colour you choose to go with. 8)

I like that green but I think the one I actually mean is Oak Green as in this advert:
