You folks also have to look at the Baleno in Beam Blue - looks damn neat - unfortunately I'm not too happy with the design of the alloys I chose - a lesson to me to shop around a bit more next time.

Palio Adventure - Black and Red

The Esteem ? - our '96's blue is still the best IMHO.

The Safari looks ugly and as if it's about to topple over in every colour except black.

Palio Hatch ? Black or Red - even the S10 Yellow looks nice.

Lancer : Red , and the matte grey-black the Evo comes in - not the metallic we get

New/Old Honda City - Black/Dark Blue

Various Mercs : Has to be Silver or Black - ditto for Porsche - anything else is blasphemy

Endeavour : Black then Blue.

MM550 : Army model in Army Green - one of the best looking 4x4's around - shame about the mechanicals though.

Amby/Scorpio : hopefully invisible - Actually White for the Amby arouses a feeling of what can be called hatred as it mostly means some fat cat <insert the worst expletives of your choice here> neta or babu is in it. RPG time. Signifies what's holding India back.

Swift : Black or Red - one amazing looker

Getz : Red

Accent : looks good only in the Red Viva guise

Contessa : Ideally Black with gold/red flames painted on the sides / bonnet with wire wheels. The Indian Muscle Car (looks wise at least)

anyway, gotta go - time for some more delicious dosas for breakfast....

Petra/Palio - grey/black , even the dirty orange (?) & green
S10 - Yellow fabulous :-)
Mercs - Silver/black
BMWs - midnight/electric blue
NHC/OHC - grey, gold
Accord - black/grey
Skoda Octavia- red/black/dark green
Indica - Black (coz mine is LOL) - typeO ! - small can be nice sometimes... ;-)
Swift - black, blue, orange
Lancer - Red or the light yellow

btw saw the new Sonata in black last night and it looked great on the road !

Its obvious that I hate white/silver and lighter shades in cars, and prefer black/blues or even some flashier colours.
