I know exactly what your talking about. If it hasent been waxed in a while, and its dusty/dirty, in the sun it can look sorta like purple. Not pure purple, but sorta. Just keep it clean and waxed for that rich blue you want.

Yep, Just noticed it the other day. Dirty = kinda purple.

My 10 second cure is to drive the toyota 4x4 which is always black and never gets washed. 20 years old and the frame is still basicly in one piece.

LOL, well.. whatever makes ya smile eh?

Heck, I actually enjoy the look of sonic blue, but catch it at a glance when it hasnt been well waxed and taken care of, and yeah.. teh sun can make it look deceivingly darkish purple.

I saw a sonic blue ranger a while back, and I was looking at it as it went by, and saw a purpleish tint in it.
