Lid color match

Discovered that the chin liner is separating from the shell. So looking 'round for a replacement I've landed on a Scorpion R2000. But the freakin' color/graphic options suck. Just curious how much of your decision is made by those two factors.

My factors usually start with fit, features, cost, ECE rating. The rest follows.

Fit first, then graphics. I go with neutral colors so it matches anything.

fit, field of vision, weight, and so on. Graphics I could care less about usually just go with flat black.

Honestly, I look at things in this order:
1) Reputation (personal experience, friends, people on this forum, etc.)
2) Price
3) Features/aesthetics
4) Hope it fits
5) If #4 didn't work out, start back at #1

I don't care for color match as none of my helmets match my gear or bikes. I do consider the graphics though. Fit is the most important to me.
