Next, check your personal kua number against this table for your personal element and its representative colors. It is generally more beneficial for you to select a color that supports your personal element.

As a rule, if the color of your car reinforces your personal kua element, it will help to bring you overall good luck. So, if your kua number is 1, then a midnight blue exterior with black leather interior would be an excellent choice for you.

Those who would like to fine-tune their personal feng shui can select colors that better suit their individual needs. If you use your car to ferry your kids to school or your spouse to work - activities centred on your family - it is more favorable to select a color which boosts your Nien Yen element. Thus, if your kua number is 2, a white exterior with a grey interior would be great. And if your kua number is 3, and you want more money and career luck, tornado red is an auspicious color for your car.

Surveys of consumer preferences in leading automotive markets showed that more than one third (35% - 40%) chose silver (or metallic grey) as the color for their personal vehicles.

Silver had been gaining popularity in leaps and bounds, having displaced white as the fastest-selling car color since 2000.White (and its pearlescent variations), which has been the perennial favourite across all vehicle categories, continues to be one of the most popular car colors (25%-30%).

Gold has also moved into the top 10 popular car colors, garnering 10%-15% of consumers' votes.

White, grey, silver, gold… these colors account for 70%-80% of total cars sold in the past few years. Just take a look at the shiny new cars on the road today; it would appear that every other car you set eyes on was either silver or white.

Hmm… surely it cannot be mere coincidence that these also happen to be the colors of the metal element. More so, now that we are in the period of 7, which is of metallic element.

Automotive marketing experts say that customers' technological orientations coupled with advances in coatings technology have contributed to the global popularity of silver - not only in the automotive industry but also in home interior, fashion and architectural design as well.

From a feng shui point of view, technological advances along with the preference for metallic colors appear to be reflective of the properties of the period of 7. Although this trend appears to be going strong, we should bear in mind that year 2003 is at the tail-end of the period of 7, and the period of 8 is just around the corner.

This changeover to the period of 8, which is of earth element, is expected to bring about various transformations in energies around us. But, would it bring about any significant changes in consumer preferences? Well, let's wait and see.
