I have seen both in person and go with the Northern lights. It is actually a very nice color and looks very classy.

I just don't believe there's much evidence to reflect such a demand. I think in this case specifically, I think the color is/will be currently extremely well regarded and in demand (especially based on my own personal experience) but it depends on the car and the tone of the color.

The problem is with hues and saturation attributed to "purple". I mean, how many purple cars are even out there? This isn't the bright, plum purple color a la Dodge Challenger which can be considered tacky and cheap. It's unfortunate that most analysts will group that in with any other purples where I think personally, deep purple colors like Malbec Black and Northern Lights Violet should fall under the Black car category quite frankly.

I would put my wife in the fancy red, whatever that is called.

Please go to your cp and list your location. This is a multinational forum, and cars from Slovakia are not the same as Belgium or the US.

I kept going back and forth between the Red and the Northern Lights violet

However, I think I want to settle on the Universe Blue.

I like to stand out and after seeing this photo, I think I've made up my mind:

White with the (black glass) sunroof. Perfect for FL, and almost a convertible. I think it looks the most expensive, except maybe the mat silver, which most of us will never see.

Given the heat that makes sense. Plus, isn't white the most desirable resale color? Or is that only with Minivans?
