Definitely black rules for every car. But exceptions always exists. Like bright red on a C230 sedan or yellow on a 911 or blue on a Z4. But black is the real thing even though its really a pain to maintain it. White isn't bad either. Looks supreme in most cars.

I am surprised that most people think Yellow looks good on a Lancer. I was thinking of getting it changed to Blood Red/ Ferrari Red/ Palio Red/Getz Red. I'll have to reconside my options now.

Lancer/Cedia
Zen - Old
Palio

Thanks guys, you stopped me from creating a blunder. I have decided against changing the color. I have to update the entire thing in the other thread I created.
So Lancer Yellow (Aussie) it remains.

Default Every car model looks the best in one particular color? Which are your favourite ?

Over many years of observations I have realized one thing.

That every car model looks the best in one particular color. It should not be the case but it is. Some colors accentuate the shape of a car and bring out the best in it. Other colors suppress the design and somehow make it ugly.

Here are some of my observations:

Maruti 800 looks best in white

Scorpio comes out best in black

The new Wagon R comes out best in Glistening gray (mouse color).

Estilo looks remarkable in White

Again everyone might have their preferences but one particular color seems to bring out the best of the shape in the car model.

Do you agree? What are your favourite colors for car models. May actually help people buy and decide on the color.
