Purple could be very tough for resale. Seems like Mercedes look most regal in silver!

I say Northern Lights Violet

It's perty and surely would be the only one in town...well, you are in Miami, so....

If you keep it long enough, resale shouldn't hurt much, if at all.

for a realtor i would say black, it's a more neutral color, not saying that any customers would not go through you just because of your car color though lol

Well, here people are pretty superficial.. I do want to be able to park in the driveway of an open house and for it to look amazing. Black is very, very, very, very, very hot down here in the sun.

What's the logic behind purple in resale value?

Go with NLV. It stands out among a sea of silver, grey and black, yet it still is elegant and somewhat formal for the evening.

Demand dictates price. If no body wants a color then there's no demand for it so the price will go down. On that theory, how many people do you know would buy a purple car?

Black CLA250 - Premium, Multimedia, Sport, Panorama roof, Bi-Xenon, Window Tinting (50%/35% Front/Rear), Carlsson C-Tronic.
Bridgestone Blizzak LM-60 RFT (Run Flats) mounted on 18x8 Anzio Turn Bright Silver wheels with TPMS sensors for winter driving.
