Actually, those lurid yellow and pink colours can look pretty horrible. And that multi-coloured Polo thing was pretty horrible.

Any pearlescent colour actually, they're friggin expensive, and no paintshop will be able to repair a single panel but would go; "no sir, that's impossible sir, car needs a full respray to match sir"

Re: What's the worst colour for a car?

Sorry as someone who previously owned a white 75, no white is not the worst colour.

If I can get a picture I will take one of a mini I see near work, amazingly this car is a 2005 registered car so it came as a new car with I kid you not, Pink/Yellow/Green. It can't be described as metallic or pearl, it actually looks like Blue Peter have covered it in glue and sprinkled glitter over it.

Not a mini fan but WHY!!!

Re: What's the worst colour for a car?

It's got to be the really odd yellow/greenish colour that some of the original Punto's came in. Kind of like martian vomit, but metallic & without the chunks.
Also beige and gold. Gold cars look hideous IMO, I never really understood why so many Pug GTI6 owners bought gold ones.

I'm not voting on this one 'coz I quite like white cars, even though I'd probably never buy one.

Hey, you bugger

White is undoubtedly the new silver. It just rocks and i'm not biased either

The worst, the absolute worst is Silver. Its just sooooooo common dahlings.

Re: What's the worst colour for a car?

My vote is for "DynaRod" pink

I have actually seen a car in that colour - I was so shocked, I almost crashed . My retinas burnt out before I could see what the make or model was......

Generaly white or brown for me. Though I have seen some nice white cars, most of them look like taxi or cheap company car.

A friend of mine had a brown audi A4, we used to refer to it as turd brown much to his dismay. Still it was a company car so we continued to take the p*ss
