I've seen a couple of other pics, but this is the first one that makes it look - - - purple.

Precisely. And that can be a good or a bad thing depending on your perspective -- hence why I think this is a very polarizing color.

If you buy it, you better love it, because this color will adversely affect resale value.

This reminds me of that purple-ish color Infiniti has, anyone know what im talking about? or better yet know what it's called? seems like this is close to it.
I am not an Infiniti guy (have always preferred my Benzes), but a friend of mine has a G35 in the color I believe you're speaking of, and it's called Malbec Black.

Yeah it's Malbec Black, I love it, it's one of the colors that really made me give the Infiniti I saw it on a second look. But there's just something about a Mercedes and the color that MB picks for it, that combination cannot be compared to anything else, it's art.

the Infiniti looks a little darker than the CLA though, the CLA is more purple... I really want to see some photos of Norther Lights Violet at night, I think thats where the color will really have an impact. I'm sure most of the time at night it will look black but when the street lights hit it the right way you get a flash of purple....

I'd consider it, definitely unique. I'm sure 95% of CLA's will be white, silver or black anyways...

tough to say
these colors seem like colors that are hard to photograph and get the same consistent look. probably best to do a side by side with both cars at the same location to get a real look and comparison
