When it comes to accurately performing an auto repair, there is perhaps no more important question than the color of the vehicle’s paint job. Actually, that’s incorrect. Color has (almost) nothing to do with performing foreign car service on your car. But, it is still an interesting topic to discuss. And today we have some big news. White is the new silver.

Silver carThat’s right, silver–long America’s most popular color for cars–has been upended by white. Silver reigned in America for over a decade, but it seems that Americans have now decided that it was far too flashy and have begun to opt for white instead. That’s despite the fact that white paint makes the car appear dirtier much quicker and more easily shows every dent and scratch.

White may be dominant as a car color, but automakers are sympathetic to the lack of good vehicle paint jobs available from the manufacturer. To that end, they are drawing up new models and colors from dark grey to chocolate to sea foam and dark olive. Yes, these aren’t exactly the flashiest, but the neon yellow vehicles just don’t seem to sell quite as well. Which is actually a shame because they are really good at increasing your visibility.
