I was thinking about painting my car original color, which would be this



what would it look like with a coat of pearl on it?
i heard of people spraying a layer of pearl on top of their existing paint job.. is this a good idea? Does it yield good results?

I did exactly what you want to do. However, I did get my car sanded and primered first. Then sprayed new paint down, same color as factory. Then patterns and a gold pearl were shot on afterwards.

would i want a gold or silver pearl?
With your color, i would say silver. But thats my opinion, choose what you think you will like.

that's perfectly fine to do. I would definatelynot go with a gold pearl. It will change your original color to much. I would use a nice blue pearl or white pearl they will set that blue right off.
