good point, but that really isn't a choice. if you wanted nieman marcus, you were stuck with purple. it's not really an option.

Crimson

Interesting that when I recently picked up my Crimson Pearl, the dealer said it was the first one they had sold in that color (and they have delivered about 12 so far). Yet, it is leading the votes for favorite color.

People like Crimson, but don't order it? I wonder.

I did not order my Crimson Pearl from a dealer but when I was looking "in March" for one on dealer locator I found more XLR's in any color BUT Crimson Pearl.
But if you look on ebay today you will find MORE Crimson Pearl then any other color so who knows....

I was thinking the same thing.
everyone always says mine is the first red they've seen,
if one at all. and it was more difficult to locate when I ordered
in Nov. I thought there we're far fewer red produced.

Also interesting is the second place Blue was discontinued??

Any way to get production figures by color???

Thunder Gray Discontinued

The Xenon Blue has been the sleeper color, people were not sure about it until they saw it in person. In popularity it ranks up near the top.

The color that is discontinued was the Thunder Gray. The last day for an XLR dealer to place an order for the Thunder Gray was 4/20/04. @005 production starts on June 28th with the new color Blue Steel.

Thanks
Allen

I like the Xenon Blue . Then the Black. I haven't seen an ugly one yet in any color.

Cool

Lt. Plat would be my first color of choice and second would be Blk Raven. The car looks sharp!

This is my first post to this forum and I am working towards to purchasing this "push button automobile" by 2005.

Favorite Color Poll

Has anyone seen the new for '05 "Steel Blue" color? If so, what was it like? Or, when is it expected to arrive at dealers? I think it will look good, and expect that the color will be like previous blue-gray metallics that have been offered on Mercedes Benzes in the '70s and '80s, and on '80s BMWs.

Incidentally, a few months ago, there was an '04 XLR custom painted in "Silver Green" with Neutral Shale leather interior offered on e-bay for sale. It was the "Silver Green" previously offered on the CTS models. The combination looked good, overall. The car was initially a N-M special edition car (ultra violet) but the repaint, from the photos, looked quite professionally done.

So far my favorite color is the zenon blur, blue I mean, or is it blur! My next favorite color will probably be the steel blur, I mean blue, but will have to wait and see it first.

I just bought a Steel Blue. More classy than flashy. Pictures in about a week.

I am now starting wonder about the numbers that are showing up on the color chart above.
I wonder if this is showing what colors people ordered or NOW what the dealers ordered and had left in stock.
I think some people may have had to buy any color just to get one of these beautiful cars. Now that they have been out a little while and the 2005's are starting to hit the road maybe the chart will change a little faster and show a different scale or percentage.
