: I'll throw in a dissenting vote on this, as long as you're talking about Royal Red. This name is a bit of a misnomer, because it's actually halfway between burgundy and mahogany - at least to my eyes. With the grey interior it looks rich without being excessively sedate.
: It also has the advantage of being less often seen - I think the silver/white/black choices are just too common. After all, what's the point of buying an exclusive car if it looks just like everyone else's exclusive car? :-)
: When it comes to a bright red, I don't think I'd like it on a 540, though both my Honda Civics have been that colour. For me it works better on smaller cars like Civics or Ferraris.
black, silver, grey and some shades of blue (namely, topaz blue, steel blue and avus blue). Montreal blue and LeMans blue (which are purply) are ugly as hell. Orient blue, biarritz blue and estroil blue are okay. In the early 1990s, BMW had a light blue exterior (similar to 1989 to 1992 Nissan Maximas) that is very bland.
