    Plum Metallic

    I was on the Cadillac website exploring the new CTS and I know pictures may not tell the whole story of how a car looks in person, but the Plum color is not at all what I expected and looks, let's just say, not so good. I expected more of a dark black cherry, and this is more of a straight purple. I like purple, but on every car with hints of purple, it has been just that "hints" of purple, with usually a darker color, usually black, heavily mixed in. I even enjoy the classic "Plum crazy" of the Dodge muscle cars of the 70s, but theses photos, at least, do not make want to order Cadillac Plum. It looks like the present Stealth Blue which, again I have not seen in person, but that looks downright bad in photos.

    Pictures (especially) on computers rarely give the full experience of that color, and even in person some colors can change between sunny and cloudy conditions; it would be best, when considering, lets say an abstract color, to get an in-person (live) look (at the dealership).

    Re: Plum Metallic

    I had high hopes for that color being like the other Metallic purples GM offered in the past on the Trans Am's and ect.
    So I planned on ordering an ATS in that color until I saw the actual color swatch at the dealer and quickly changed my mind back to Opulent blue metallic

    Re: Plum Metallic

    Majestic Plum Metallic is a very dark metallic purple in appearance--based upon the color sample I saw at my dealership. As for the Stealth Blue metallic, it was announced, but I have yet to see one in dealer inventory locally or on the web? Has anyone seen a Stealth Blue metallic CTS in-person yet?

    I agree that you can't go by the pictures on a computer and that in-person view is always advisable. The problem is that with these non-standard colors, dealers are reluctant to order and thus it is hard to see one in-person. The gold 2013 CTS and ATS, for example, do not look good and dealers that have them sit on their lots for months on end.

    WOW! THAT is an AWESOME color! My local dealer has a pretty healthy supply of ATSs, but I've never seen that color.

    Some 35% - 20% tint (and the polished rims) would complement it nicely IMHO.

    Re: Plum Metallic

    I think it's the right balance...not too light but not too dark

    Re: Plum Metallic

    Ok, now that I've seen an actual photo, I retract my original post. It looks good. Would still like to see it in person, but at least the photo changes my opinion from probably not to likely (assuming I was ready to order).
