Default Which color would you associate with the Car Manufacturer?

I encountered heavy and slow traffic on my way to office today. So obviously my mind was flickering here and there, trying to pass time. And this is the time when i started noticing color of different car manufacturers. One thing i immediately noticed is how good white looks on Hyundai. And i also realized that whenever i visualize hyundai...i start thinking about white.
And then it went on for other car manufacturers as well...
So here's my question. Which color would you visualize or associate with, while thinking about a particular car manufacturer??
And which color do you think would best compliment a particular car manufacturer?
my 2 cents...
1. BMW--> Dark stone grey
2. Audi--> White/Black
3. Merc--> Dark Navy Blue
4. VW--> Black
5. Skoda--> Red
6. Fiat--> Red
7. Hyundai--> White
8. Honda--> Champagne Color
9. Maruti--> Silver
10. TATA--> White

Skoda >> Dirty Murky Mud

Tata though is something I've always associated with Blue, not white. There's even a color called Tata Blue in the Asian Paints catalogue - we noticed this while getting our house painted last year.

Maruti - Red. Those were the first RED cars in India.

Well who can forgot the shining dark maroon on Rolls Royce phantom.

Almost similar color which is also unique on Mercedes S class.

Another one, misty violet in Civic.

Nano in red.
