Ashish ji, that Pink is not a company colour, it is a one-off custom job.

I thought of raising another question in this thread which colour according to you is the best to maintain and most difficult to maintain when this question comes in ones mind he always thinks white is the most difficult to maintain but actually if you see do you think white is the most difficult to maintain and remain clean and shiny always i don't think so and that may be the reason why cabbies prefer white infact scratches are hardly noticed in a white coloured car compared to a black coloured car

That was a big sentence! I believe its about colours, at least. I dont think cabbies paint white "because they like it". There must be rule regarding the same.

Black and dark blue are hard to maintain.

White is easy, cheap to fix and anonymous as well.

Default What Colour for Safari

Hi,

As the title suggests, what colour should I get for the Safari I am going to order soon? Personally I think it looks great in black or white, as I am going for an LX version pearl white is out of the equation. My wife and I were pretty much decided on black , until mother in law tells us that the roads in Goa are narrow and dark, trucks coming the other way may not see us in a black car i am not convinced by this reasoning, but my wife is.
So here are the options, 1. Black(The Dark Destroyer)
2. Arctic White
3. Arctic Silver
4. Cycus Grey

Help me choose guys, i have to keep the peace!

Regards,

Stefan

I personaly think black is the best which suits safari it gives it that scary look but i guess your mother is not suggesting it,like your mother many people say no to black because of the same reason but i feel that its nothing to worry about just make sure when you park in the dark you leave the parking lights on so i think you should go for MEN IN BLACK

Colours of my choice for the following cars:-

Honda Old:- Warm Silver (Light golden)
Latest Honda:- From Brochures (Red)
Chevy Optra:- Sparkling diamond or Black
Innova:- Silver
Swift:- Red or White or sometime in the new Orange
Civic:- The purple shade (don't know its proper name) or White
Old Accord:- White or Black
New Accord:- Black or the new Beige

And the list goes on and on

I think either Black or White rules the chart for 80% of the Cars
