I finally got a chance to personally see the color swatches at the dealer the other day not enough Plum in it for me.
Here's a mind blowing proposisition; colors are supposed to catch your eye! Not suck all life and air away from it's surroundings. All luxury brands (except maybe Audi, thank you imola yellow, nogaro blue and laser red) spend way too much time trying to invent a new wheel and forget that this is going to be on the exterior of a 30-50K vehicle
That's why I loved Black Diamond Tricoat. There's no way you could possibly miss a 4,000lb bass-boat with 4 wheels in the sunlight. Ultimately though, it's still business black the other 70% of the time.
I get it, some people just want to blend into the crowd and get to the grocery store, or maybe they like to wear their car with sophistication like a fine piece of jewerly. That's fine, there's nothing wrong with that. All I'm saying is, if you buy a car with a color that has less character than a 15 year old camaro, you're doing it wrong. Please just go buy a maxima.
They're rampant because they sell better. The sad truth is that if you like bold eye-catching color on your second-most-expensive purchase, you are a small minority these days... and you're more likely to be looking at a sexy two-seater.
There's just way too much metallic dirt out there.
I also saw the color swatch at the dealer and it was hard to see much plum. I just wonder how it'll look in the sun light on a car.
They'll be building some plum cars this week.
There was a color for the 2013 tahoe called concord something that was never released. Wonder if it is the same?
Here's an exampleQuote:

Purple is not meant to be subtle, dammit.
The old-man lets not make this too eye catching syndrome has struck again.
I swear, every luxury car maker will sell you any color you like, so long as it can be confused for a shade of Black or white.
Audi is the only brand that had the ballz to do this, and they haven't done so in a good while.
I saw a bunch a photos on cars.com and I don't really like it.
It's a bit too gray and makes the purple look too flat.
