Paint color ideas. :)

What's up 'ru nerds!!
First post here
I've come here because my friends are all subaru haters and I need the opinion of people who love these cars.
I have a stock internals 2.2 '96 leggy outback in spruce green
Ive recently gotten into a minor accident, without going into the details, it's left me in need of a new bumper cover. I thought this may be a good opportunity to 1) touch up some rust spots, but 2) perhaps paint my bumpers and the grey sideskirts.
Don't get me wrong, I love the way the grey goes with the spruce green. But I've just come to find it slightly boring, and the poor thang deserves to be aesthetically spruced up a lil after recent damage I've put her through.

TL;DR, my question for you guys is
What colors do you think would go good with subaru spruce green in place of the grey?
Thanks homies

How 'bout really pissing off your Subaru-hating friends and painting them something really contrasting, like phosphorescent orange or a lime green?

Lots of articles out there about compatible colors, like these:

Dodge's Grabber Green is something. I did a 97 engine in Emerald and Grabber and the grabber glowed at you when you opened the hood to a white engine compartment. If someone painted it right, it would definitely stand out with loud color.
