When we ordered our 12 SEL in May 11 no one had a Candy Blue one around. The pictures made it look like it was a very bright blue with a little silver to it. We ordered based on the pictures.

We were a little disappointed when the car came in, not at all like the pictures. Candy colors are made by spraying a tinted clear over a different color base such as silver, gold, black. I was expecting blue over silver. The color does not look like a Candy at all

That being said its not a bad looking blue. It is quite bright with greenish over tones. The green is more prominent at night. Also, this color is one of those shades that doesn't show dirt. My wife is not one to stay on top of washing her car and the Candy Blue always looks good.
