    White cars are best, since it reflects heat, and your car will therefore be less of an oven.

    I got a white hatchback and painted my rims, logos, and some other bits and bobs black and I immediately began getting compliments, I honestly go into my garage at night and check out my car just because I enjoy looking at my new color scheme. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.

    I dunno, I love my car colors I have. I remember when I bought my 4th gen Maxima the owner was like yeah the car is gold/beige hopefully I don't care about the color. First I was like whatever, cuz the car had/has low milage. Slowly it grew on me and I'll definetly keep it, maybe make it a bit more vivid.. :D Haven't got a speeding ticket with my red teggy yet. :) My BMW is Granite Silver Metallic which is quite boring but still sexy on that car.

    The thing about red cars is a logical fallacy. Statistically, the proportion of drivers of red cars will always be smaller, so it’s easy to skew numbers; I’m on two red cars in a row now, and my insurance is quite reasonable. I also have been on the road with no speeding tickets for 22 years, though. 👍🏽

    I love the blue streak metallic of my 2019 Toyota Camry SE. True, there are a gazillion of them. So? It still looks nice and showcases a nice wax job. Wax it with Meguiar's spray wax for black paint and my car got a lot of second looks from those who drove far more expensive cars. Blue Streak Metallic + Meguiar's black paint spray wax + dark window tint = Wow!
