I prefer darker colours although not totally black.

White and silver cars disappear in the winter here, get a bit of snow and they are hardly visible, same with that insipid beige colour Chevrolet makes.

I know Lexus has an ugly puke green color available. It is probably one of the least popular colors with good reason. I know there has been one being sold locally but it's been up for months and price has slowly been trickling down. At what point is it worth it? 90% of comparables? 80%? 70%?
Buying late model used most of my life - I'll drive what is a good deal as long as it is not embarrassing. Everything has a price - make the price good enough and I would likely drive anything. May need to be 50% off but there is a price...

I won't buy a car unless I can get it in a bright shade of blue.

I have a Champagne Silver Mini, used to have a 2000 Millenium Silver Toyota Tacoma

I like silver apparently, but would have no problem driving that Lexus. I thought it was a vibrant, primary colored '70s green,
this seems to be quite muted. I'd throw some nice tint on it and keep it movin'

If I'm buying new, its a huge deal.

I can't stand silver, beige, white, and in some cases, black. Boring colors. No personality. Ticks me off when certain options aren't available in the color I want.

Some, but few, colors I like. Some colors I like but would avoid owning due to maintaining dirt (like black, which looks great clear but horrible dirty). Some colors I could live with if I had to. Some colors I would never own (yellow, puke green, orange, etc.).

I was thinking the other day that when I was young (a long time ago) many (even most) vehicles were two tone. I rarely see a two tone vehicle today especially in a newer model. Guess it was a fad that lost popularity.......

If the discount was a few thousand dollars I could take that and get it wrapped any color I wish

Only black. My last 6 cars have been black. Because no vehicle looks as good as a black car - for the 5 minutes after its washed.

I have, in fact, bought a car because it was a weird color, they had tons of them on the lot in that color and were willing to deal. Not only that, it was ugly too. Doesn't matter to me.. it was a great car. Paid $18K and sold it four years later for $12K private party.
