My car is a 2010 blue diamond. Black was my first choice, but I got a great deal on this one. The story is; that a customer pre-ordered the color, and when it came in they hated it so much they refused to take it. They lost a $500.00 deposit too.
I personally wanted a V2 so bad, I didn't care if it was Mary Kay Pink. I did not like the color at all, but I had to have a V2. I bought the ugly blue car.
Two months later, I love the color!
I understand the color is no longer available? Does anyone else have a 2010 Blue diamond?

You probably have a 2009, they didn't offer it on 2010, I think, I wanted this color and when I ordered my car they said not an option

Nope, no doubt about it, mine is a confirmed 2010. I think it is unique. But my initial dislike, and the person who ordered and walked away from the car, are certainly clues as to why Blue Diamond was discontinued for 2010.

If it says 2010 on your vehicle documentation than you have one rare vehicle considering that 2010 didnt have a color option for the blue diamond

I am trying to upload my "2010" window sticker and a picture of the car, but I am having no luck. It says the upload failed, but not why.
I can e-mail direct to anyone who is really interested. I don't know how to decode the VIN, but I suppose that would say when it was "built".

If you post a VIN someone can run the build sheet.

I cannot find a build date from the VIN. No big deal, I just think that I have one of very few "blue" 2010's. I've been in the car game long enough to know that it is worthless and adds no value, I just thought it was unique...

Hey dvandentop: I am sorry, I am the only male on my period today. I hated that your post made me laugh so hard. I am stealing that cartoon for my own personal use now.

As for a picture of the doorjamb... I got a new Apple for X-mas and I do not seem to be able to upload to this site. I can gladly e-mail the picture to someone who could post???

I do not think the color/year combo is "special" but it is weird. I have never spoke to anyone who loved the color at first sight, but it "grows" on you.

That is accurate to my car, I was just wondering if there were any others out there??

Huh, I think that is pretty cool. Would like to see some pics. Did you buy the car from Scott at Superior? Maybe he can give us the story. The build sheet shows it was a 'SLL sold order', I think that means it was ordered that way by a customer. Another question for Scott or a dealer - is it possible to enter an order to GM today with the blue diamond color?

There were only 76 blue diamond 2009 made, so it is rare to begin with. Perhaps at the opening of 2010 ordering it is still possible to select blue diamond color? I have seen the color on the base CTS, would like to see it on the V.

I bought my first V2 on the East Coast where I live. The second was supposed to be for my wife.
I've got a ton of pictures that I am too stupid to upload. I can e-mail you though...

It's interesting that backup says only 76 blue 2009 were produced, I saw four of them at once in one dealer's lot in Calgary - two used "GM executive" returns and two new.

I hope you can figure out how to post the pictures. There certainly aren't that many of them out there and it would be a worthwhile addition to the picture thread.

Damn they gave up 500$ to walk away? I'm sure they could have traded for a different color. Anyway, does the 10' model come with any upgrades from 09? I think I read NAV is standard for the 2010' model. I'm assuming no backup camera? Shit Acura has a backup camera why can't GM install one. :thepan:

6DN69 -2010 CTS-V SERIES
GBO - BLUE DIAMOND TRICOAT

The Vehicle Order Guide included this change, effective 31 August 2009, for the CTS sport wagon, CTS sedan, and CTS-V:

Color and Trim section-Exterior color (GBO) Blue Diamond Tricoat, created a new footnote #5 for this color that reads "Available at extra charge. Not available on CTS Sport Wagon or CTS-V.".

I wonder which will turn out to be more unusual for 2010 - Blue Diamond sport wagons or Blue Diamond CTS-Vs?

It looks really feminine (politically correct), in certain sunlight. And like black, it looks bad when dirty. I have come to love it; I just have seen any other 2010"s in the blue yet.

I have one and maybe you are right about the feminine nature. I'm okay with it. My wife loves it. The color constantly changes with changes in lighting. In bright sunlight it appears periwinkle to me. In the evenings it looks gray. The highly metallic paint reminds me of a bass boat. That fits right in Springfield Mo-the headquarters of Bass Pro.

Hides dirt better than black.

i just bought a diamond blue 09. I figured there must not be very many as i have never seen one. Where did you find that only 76 were produced..

When I bought mine in summer of 2010 in Wisconsin, there was another just like it on the lot. Both had every option, and I was told that these were GM exec cars and they lost their jobs so these were sold. I also found a few more at the same time for sale in Michigan. Here's mine at an open road race out in Nebraska.
