Choosing a Car COLOUR that will
Keep its Value for Years to Come
One of the most important things people think about when they buy
a car is the colour - and rightly
so! A good shade of paint can make a dowdy car look amazing, and a poor shade can make an amazing car look
dowdy. But which are the best colours to choose?
The first rule is to remember that your personal taste may not be the same as the majority of
people out there. If you want your car to keep as much of its value as possible, it's always best
to play it safe.
THE TOP 3:
1) BLACK - We get asked to find more black cars than any other colour, because on most
cars it looks upmarket and professional. There are some cars that can add £1,000 to their value
just by being in black.
2) GREY - A very popular choice over recent years for people who feel that black always
looks dirty and shows up any small mark easily (very true). Some view it as a little dull, but
it is still very popular.
3) SILVER - Traditionally a very popular choice; however, it has become so popular that many
people have turned away from it.
The colours to avoid are light metallic colours, anything too bright, white and red... however,
white has become very fashionable over the last couple of years amongst top-end luxury and sports
car makers, and I think that red will stage a comeback in the next year or so.
But that said, you always take a risk by trying to follow fashion!
Until next time!

WHY I LOVE THE...
With all the same running gear as a Golf it cannot fail to be
reliable, but it just looks SO much better. I love it because it is possibly the best merger
of funky design and tried-and-tested mechanicals ever seen!
