ok guys..well here's my pick

Baleno - Black
Palio - Red, grey ( heazel, mist moon), Orange (1st gen)
Scorpio - Black
Skoda - Yellow, Red
Mondeo - Black ( though mine is Silver - just to meet sheer family belief/pressure)
Lancer - Black
Accent - Red
Swift - Red with white sports stripes

Ambassador - White only

In nutshell, silver for long cars - looks great in dark. Black in day as long as one can keep wax'ed/clean. Gimme RED anytime

Black is a colour that covers up otherwise ugly design, hence the baleno and the old santro look good in black.

Another thing is if we see the same colour again and again we get bored.. for example the silver colour, about 4-5 years ago silver was hepp colour and now it is yuck

Similarly after seeing so many red swifts I feel like puking at the sight of a red swift.

The colour White is looking cool these days because it is not common.

My fav colour for any car is the orange that the new swift has got.
