Montego Blue replaces Mystic Blue everywhere on all models I believe.

I believe so. Someone else on this board has a 2007 Z4 in Montego Blue as his sig.

IMO, regardless of what color this is, these photos make the new coupe really look like a Honda Accord.

Yep! :tsk: looks E-X-A-C-T-L-Y like a Honda Accord Coupe! :nono:
I was thinking the Accord Sedan.....the coupe's taillights are more triangular in shape than the 3 coupe.

I'm with ya -- at the end of the day between DOT rules and design limitations, there is only so many variations you will have. Also, there is a balance between unique, utility and ugly

Everyone I believe tries to copy each that is why they are always taping up their cars from spy shots so that nobody steals their cues but it happens anyhow.

I guess I don't look at just a single detail and look at the whole package.

This is a pic from my March 2006 Euro Delivery taken from the ED center cafe in Munich. That's my friend's Accord coupe...couldn't resist posting in this discussion. (the car wasn't my new one...just a random E90 we parked next to)....that's Mystic Blue which is very close to Montego.

There is a certain segment of the market that will buy on pure impluse and emotion. In Autoweek there was story about how important color is and if company has a certain shade of Red and company has no Red and that person really wants "red", they will buy from the other company just because they have red.

I believe that most auto companies have dedicated teams to define colors for the following model year and everyone has to have a blue, black etc. I am not at all surprised that every company has a similar blue.

My favorite colors are still the ones offered on the Lotus Elise!
