Default Nice cars.. and colors they do not look good in.

Saw a few BMW's recently that even tho they were nice.. 540's and the such. The color made them look less than what they were.

I personally don't believe RED is a good color on BMWs typically.. Sure, it's the standard sportscar color. But unless it's an M, e36 or e30 it doesn't look right at all.
The new ones don't pull off red all that well.

What other cars get ruined by standard color choices?

Flaming is right... I think they're beautiful, ESPECIALLY with the gold wheels, with a polished lip...

Hey, that's why they make cars in all different colours right?

To each their own. Just not my taste.

I liked black, until I got one. The paint is so badly faded, it looks terrible now.

Red on an 8 series = hotness.

Red on the WRX strikes me the same way actually.

just makes it look pedestrian for some reason.

Any tan, gold, aquamarine, brown, or light green on any car. They should be barned from automobiles.

see, I like how that NSX looks.
love that color on the 350's as well.

but yeah.. it has the ability to become one of those dated colors much like the aquamarine caviler Z24's of the early 90's
