    Better yet, is it worth the nearly $1,000 premium that is charged for BDT?
    I went with Black Raven... it was more because I couldn't justify paying 1k for slightly different paint. After ordering I was worried that I would regret it but I absolutely don't. The Black Raven is stunning. I would like to see a Black Diamond right next to a Black Raven just to compare them. Without that, I think it would be hard to make a fair decision.

    Funny when I was first looking I wanted Black Diamond. When I went to the dealer they had a Black Raven in my config. Next to it was a Black Diamond. The Black Diamond next to Black Raven actually looked more gray than black. It's still a great color but I'm really glad I went with the black raven. This with the red interior and all the chrome is a great combo.

    Well I messed up my vote. I wanted to vote Black Raven but hit the Diamond by mistake. My wife and I love the Black Raven but mostly because the Morello Red interior looks best with it. We also are a huge fan of the Red exterior but thats the color of our last car. Our car before that was dark Black also. Can you see a pattern here? We really like black and red and feel they are the best colors for our cars.

    Re: Time for ATS Favorite Color Poll:


    According to PPG’s annual survey of global color popularity, white ranked first (22 percent) and silver was second (20 percent), followed by black (19 percent), gray (12 percent), red (9 percent), natural (8 percent), blue (7 percent), green (2 percent) and other colors (1 percent).

    Black, white, silver and gray are not colors - they are the absence of colors. Besides, they are conservative, sedated, formal, bland and over-done.

    The smallest Cadillac can show its sporty style in only one color - "sportscar' red". This time, Cadillac got the red right, check the top of this page and the many commercials.

    In fact, I just noticed a commercial with all Cadillac models in red.

    I am not biased, after all, I got two red ones

    Here's mine in Thunder Gray. I originally wanted one in Black Raven to match my DTS, but they didn't have one and I didn't want to wait. I'm glad I didn't try and hold out because I love this color just as much and I haven't seen one on a dealer lot in Black Raven that is the combo that I wanted yet.
    MyfirstCad and MyfirstCad like this.

    thought there'd be more love for Op Blue, but a little biased. However, photos do not do this color justice, so I could see why it may not be getting the score it deserves

    Thunder gray all the way. I think black diamond looks like one of those sparkly dresses women wear in Vegas. And the gold looks like Spicy brown mustard. Black raven is ok, just too many black cars.

    Re: Time for ATS Favorite Color Poll:

    I do believe that black looks excellent when cleaned up and properly waxed with no scratches. But in the real world it is such a PITA to keep up and requires allot of time and money to maintain properly. I have seen so many black cars neglected and they look like crap; you guys all know what I am talking about. So that negates the great "black look". These comments are from my own experience and I have had two black cars and I swore I will never own another black car!

    Thanks for listening. I feel better. ;-)
