Sheesh... what's wrong with us? Do we all have to be conformists?
That's the problem with most car buyers. Inside, they like a more interesting colour but when it comes time to purchase, people want various shades of gray, silver, white, and black, which is then what dealers order. Too afraid of mundane things like "resale value" and "too shouty".

Unfortunately, the automakers respond by offering only various shades of the aforementioned colours, and few little else.
