Default The best and worst color of a car...

I am actually tired of hearing mixed remarks about the color of my car. So i am curious to know what is the general perception. I understand the choice of color for a car is very subjective but at the same time, you care about the feedback.

hence i thought this will be an interesting topic to start. If already exists, please move it to suitable place.

Which is the best and the worst color of a car on the road according to you?

Mine:

Like : Moon dust silver in Fiesta

Don't like : Pink of Zen Estilo

Default depends totally on the car

Some colors suit certain cars.. some dont. I think it depends on the car and its image. For example the feiry red looks great on the ferrari but looks silly on the scorpio. The skoda octavia red was good but the same skoda looked silly in the maroon. So to some extent it depends on the car.
But i was impressed by the deep pearl blue of the verna as well as the sunlight copper in the sx4. I wish more color option were here in india. somehow most of them just offer executive options such as silver, white, black, beige etc. I think a good metallic green is missing.

The Fiat Siena (the new look one) used to come in a strange metallic orange shade. Used to hate it to the core!

I too really miss this one from the scene, some years back the shade of green on the Lancer really looked fab. A cool "Dark Olive" is only seen Porche, and BMZ's. I guess, Indian Car Manufacturer's need to leaf from such "phoren maal"

Further more, I just can't stand these "Orange" shades, which have splashed all the new variants, starting from fiat Palio , ford fiesta, n ell... but thats a personal opinion.

Recently Misty Violet in the Civic really is breath taking. Honda in general caters to a "Executive" taste, but there they've made an exception.

An all time favourite of mine since time and eternity is 'frosty silver'.

@ASR: that really makes me sick, it's for me the worst ever color/model combination EVER! i think when you buy that car in that color, you get a paperbag with two holes in it (for your eyes) for free!

I guess BLACK suites all the cars and it's a favorite to many but some have sentimental values and never even bother to look at it... personally I love black..
I didn't like the saffron color in the AVEO but was not bad on Swift, and yes those feminine colors of pink shade is a definite no no if guys are driving it..

I just hate the sight of the Distemper color BLUE Indica which used to come before.

It was like tata's painted it together with their factory walls or something..
