Default PAINT! Which Color?

Ok, So my truck has been the same color for a decade now & It is time to spray it again!Right now it is Toyota Platinum silver metallic with some Blue metallic in the base clear coat. Looks decent but, It is OLD to my eyes! So I have it down to 2 colors and I cannot pick? 1.) Jetstream blue 2.) Electron Blue Pearl? Just want some feedback and Opinions, Also both colors will be getting some flake thrown in as well.
