Rendering assembly with original part colors

I've created an assembly of parts, many of which are of differing colors. When I try to render the assemblies, everything takes the color of the Appearance setting. There must be some way to have the parts maintain their original color?

Also, is there anything that can be done to speed up the rendering? It seems to hang at "calculating illumination" every time. Finding I have to wait 5 minutes for a 100px x 75px Medium (85) image, which looks horrible.

Thanks for the help.
