Cars Color and Placement Suggestion

The latest build give the user the ability to pick custom car colors and is great if you are just placing a few cars in the scene and need to adjust the color, but it is still a huge pain when placing large numbers of cars, like in a parking lot.  I end up placing several cars that still randomly chooses several over saturated car colors, and then I have to go back and change the colors to something more realistic.    This takes a  long time, and with the custom color picker it is hard to get constant color look and take more time then I want to spend.   

My suggestion would be to take the over saturated colors out of the matrix and choose something like 20 decent colors that fairly common across all the user all user regions.  Then if someone wants a lime green car, they can adjust as needed on a individual basis. 

Also, another nice feature would be to have the ability to choose the orientation of the car before placing, so if you need to place a huge amount of cars you do not have to go back and rotate ever single car in the correct direction.  The cars would continue to be placed in the direction that the user choose until they changed it.

I know this has been brought up before, but this still needs improvement. 
Just a few suggestion, probably easier said then done!

thanks.

yeah chew it's a very good idea  :-D (don't know if it is in the wish list) ...

I have an idea which can upgrade your suggestion :
can be use for trees and object.
when we move an object with copy we  press "+" or "-" on keyboard to increase the number of copy then click or release click and the objects are created with the same space between and all selected so you can random rotation scale or color....
 
You can easily fill long street or pedestrian walk with cars, trees, street-light  ....
what do you think about ?

thanks

(Using real-world car colours as well as more advanced object placement options for linear/circular arrays have indeed been suggested a number of times)
