      Why no green?

      After optioning lots of automobiles on manufacturer websites, I've come to realize that about (enter kinda high percentage #) of companies don't offer automobiles in the color green. I thought a sexy color green was something the whole family could agree on? Are millennials to blame for this, or bad bean counters.

      What cars come in green still?

      Alex, short for Alex.

      I like Subaru's Wilderness Green



      I always loved the Fresco green on B5s though.

      Colors come and go. Brown wasn't offered for some time and it came back by some manufacturers.

      The Fiesta and Spark came in those bright greens for a while, but they seem to be rolled back a bit from the last greens of seen. Current greens are muted, less vivid.

      IMO, it's because it doesn't present well in photographs. Looks great in person, but meh, in pics.
      signatures are annoying, right?

      Because every new car is grey, silver, black, maroon, white, royal blue or navy blue.

      Seriously, it's like everybody collectively said "you know what, **** colors."

      My Jeep is black forest green pearl and was actually advertised as black before I pointed it out to the salesman

      (Not my Jeep)


      My father's Sierra 1500 is an awesome shade of emerald green, about the same as the pic below.

      Good stuff!
      I still have my B5 Cactus Green A4, a Ravenna Green 914 and still hate that I had to sell my triple green MB 280C (Two tone green with avocado interior!).
      If I ever need to get the S6 painted, I'd be tempted to see what Cactus Green looks like on it!

      For $3000, VW Canada is offering a bunch of special order colours for the E-Golf and I believe Golf R as well.

      Green is my favorite color, but a lot of people seem uncomfortable with the 90's vibe it presents.

      But the E36 boston grün metallic was a great color.

      Heh, nice catch 22 there. How do I show I like green by purchasing a new green car if only a few cars are offered in green...

      The SS also comes in a silver/green variant.

      That's funny, I was just noticing how many luxury automakers have reintroduced green into their lineup.
