I didn't think color was important to me until they offered me a white car. Nooooooooooo. I love red and blue...not white. Weird colors...are fine, I wont be driving a odd car color.

Well how about that some shades of "green" (the current Chevy color Sea Grass for example) make me want to puke.

I would never buy a color that I didn't like, but some of the color choices depend on the car and what is being offered that year. Some colors don't look good in a primarily sunny area, but look great in cloudy weather. There are a lot of variations. Some colors I would never consider on any car. Other colors look terrible on one car, but great on another.

There is also a huge personal preference factor. Personally, I prefer white, black, and then I'm open to some colors in between, which today are mostly metallics. Some of it depends on the shade and the car on which it's offered. Having lived in extreme climates on either end of the spectrum, I can't stand metallics at the ends of the color palette in any area, in any climate, as the reflective qualities of metallic paint do nothing but accentuate the negative qualities typically associated with either color.

Silver is a nondescript color for nondescript cars like Accords and Camrys and econoboxes. Maybe service trucks, like plumbers with Sprinter vans. It never looks that good when clean, and never looks that bad when dirty. The lighter champagne type colors are good for that too. They look good enough when very clean, but when slightly dirty, they don't look bad.

It's not that big of a deal because I can always get a paint job and get it that custom dark purple/black, deep navy/black color, or maroon color that I've always wanted.

I just don't like the loud crazy colors they are coming out with these days. I saw a new 2015 mustang in bright yellow, a new challenger in a bright lime green, no thanks.

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%?
I wouldn't buy a vehicle if I didn't like the color. That said, I know there are vehicle wraps you can now purchase to completely and temporarily change the color of it... quite affordably actually. Perhaps research the wraps available and associated costs to do the Lexus in a color you would be happy with. If interested, then try to get an awesome deal and wrap it.
