Hey,

I voted silver coz i think that it is the universal car colour. Ie, any car will look good in silver. My 123 is silver.
Accent is black.
All other cars that have been in the family in the past have been white!

cya
R

ps - oh i forgot to mention, i seem to remember reading that in some study they found that cars painted yellow are ~10% less likely to have an accident...
also if indian families didnt have this thing about black cars being "bad" (plus the fact that black absorbs more heat) i wonder how many more black cars there would be on the street!

I love the look of a black car, but hate the upkeep that goes along with owning one!

So you could say a black car would be like my mistress, and the white would be the wife !

You said it. Gets dusty real easy and scratches are most visible. I actually have a chap wash my Jeep a second time in the evening everyday at work. Waxing and polishing is once in two months.

So which color is the best color which does not amplify the presence of dust or scratches?

I dont seem to notice as much dust on my gold siena atleast from a few feet than when i am closer to it. Also those minor scratches seem to b a little bit more well camolflagued than in darker cars. Or it may be that i am turning a blind eye to them. lol
