So sorry if this is redundant, but does anyone have pics of the capri blue?? I'm trying to come to a decision on color and I think Capri is a deeper color than the Orion, and "bluer" than the Caspian which has a hint of green. Too many blues to choose
[:)]
Thanks for your help!

I see that NovaBenz and bigciti have Capri Blue cars. Do either of you think it reflects purple tints in the sun? My dealer says it has lotsa purple in it. Just wanted to get a realistic day-to-day view from you.

BTW - novabenz, 'Nova is one of my alma maters!

I think that Capri Blue is a very rich beautiful color that changes hue as the lighting changes. At times it looks deep blue, sometimes black, sometimes with hints of purple.
Did you have your windows tinted? They llok darker than what came on the car. If so, what % tint?
