What is best practice with material instances
I hope some one with insight concerning rendering and materials would help me with this dilemma.
Scenario: I have parking lot with filled with 1000 cars. There is jut one car mesh and material. For variation material has parameters for color and detail texture. My question is which puts less strain on rendering:
I think second is better, but I recall reading somewhere that it does not matter.
Thanks in advance.

There is no difference in actual rendering performance.
If you are looking at creating thousands of cars that way, you should consider implementing a way for them to use a single material instance, or even better, combine them into a single mesh.
