Folks, I just can't bear the Pink Zen Estilo and Yellow Alto. It looks very bad.

I also do not like violet color of Tavera. It can be seen more in TN.

I personally like Sterling silver and black on any car. My all time favourite is the light green metallic colour of the new Honda CRV.

Methinks this thread needs a poll option.

To me, the quality of paint is more important that actual color. Any color can look good with excellent paint quality.

I like: Black, Red (and many more if paint quality is good)

Personally I hate cars painted white. makes them look so bland and uninteresting, and also like a hospital ambulance in India.

My favourite colour on cars would be silver and steel grey, more like the McLaren Silver on the MP4-22/23.

I wouldn't mind an all carbon fiber car with no paint on it. (If I can ever afford it)

A lot depends on the vehicle. IMO, the old Cielo color range was superbly suited for that vehicle, none of them was garish or flashy.

Yes, Jean Blue is one amazing color.

Saw a pink Getz today! It was not any better than the pink CRV we saw,..

By the way, a poll would do justice to this thread. Mods, may we have a poll started for this?
