Here are some tips on how to choose the right colour for your car.

1 Right choice, baby:

The colour of your car reflects your personality to an extent (You may argue how wrong the colour white is for politicians’ and bureaucrats’ cars). Black signifies those wanting to throw an attitude on the road. Red is also a powerful colour, but has a romantic touch, too.

2 Sleek and chic:

Silver, and its various shades in lead and other tinges, is for those wanting to flaunt a corporate look. Golden, on the other hand, reflects a more mature look and is not considered as one of the ‘younger looking colours’. White is hardly visible in privately owned cars as this is a neutral colour, and therefore suits commercial vehicles more. However, a newly purchased white car, aided with proper glass tinge, makes for a great looker.

Colourful Car3 Blue’s cool:

Blue is supposed to be the ‘common man’s’ colour. But new shades of blue are very popular among girls. Also, fluorescent green and bright red are preferred by girls.

4 Sporty:

Yellow, orange and bright green suits sporty car models.

5 Keep in mind:

While colour depends entirely on your personality, do think about the weather, too. A darker colour will result in your car heating up easily. Also, some shades look worse than others with scratches and dirt on, so avoid them.
