    Majestic Plum - a plum choice or not?

    I'm seriously considering a ATS 2.0L Turbo with Manual Transmission and I'm torn between Majestic Plum
    or something more blueish.
    Any thoughts about Majestic Plum? Is that color more purplish or more grayish?
    Any additional thoughts about Majestic Plum combined with Morello Red or would Majestic Plum look better with a Black interior?
    Thank you so very much for your input/insights!

    I saw one in a parking lot a week ago and I honestly thought it was hideous, I'd get that weird gold color before the purple..

    but different strokes for different folks I guess

    It's not a nice color. And my salesman tells me they asked the manager to avoid order too much this color because they are quiet sure it will stay for a long time in the show room. But if you like it you know you can deal a very good price

    I saw one on the street and thought it looked nice. I didn't get a long look though. Red would not be a good interior color for it.

    Best advice is to see one in person. Either it will grab you or it won't.

    There is nothing majestic about that color!

    Thanks for your very colorful response!

    Thanks for your being so blunt/honest!

    ----------

    Thanks - how does it look in the sun now?

    ----------

    Thanks for your honest opinion. Since I have not seen this color yet and it just might be a difficult one to find on a dealership
    lot, then I really appreciate a real-time critique.

    I think it's a great alternative for a dark color other than black which is so common on the road now.....it shows off the lines as well. It's distinctive. As you can tell from the photo I posted, it was a sunny day for those wondering.

    I just think its one of those colours that you'll look at a few months after purchase and wonder "what was I thinking?"

    I love almost all shades of purple (interior home decor, CLOTHES!, etc.), but I am not a fan of that color on a car. I would love to have a sweater dress that color (oh, wait, I already have one close to that).

    Plum over black would be a very good choice IMHO.

    unique - thanks again!

    Re: Majestic Plum - a plum choice or not?

    Motor Trend magazine just got a Majestic Plum over Jet Black Performance 2.0 for a long term test car. They love it, and ordered it that way. I have seen it, and I think it looks okay, but I wouldn't spend the $495 extra on it personally. You should definitely check it out for yourself before ordering. The dealer did say that the Opulent Blue would have a lower resale, and I bet the Plum will do the same. Check it out with the dealer.

    The hell with resale and an extra ~$500, IF you like the color, buy it.
