Thanks! Looks like the usual color palette from Acura. I do wish that they would try some new colors - altho Mayan Bronze & Umber apparently did not work out too well for them. Hopefully there will be more than just that brown wood option.

Small nitpick but I do wish Acura had more dedicated colors that were not shared with Honda. The average person on the street probably only sees a black RLX & a black Civic w/out knowing that they are the exact same color but even the little things can separate the brands - kind of like how they stopped putting the Honda logo on the glass of the TSX & other Acuras.

Bring back Black Currant Pearl!

Yes, it is a pretty conservative color palette. It's difficult to explain really, some of the choices they made with the TL seemed to be very attractive. But you are correct, they did not sell very well.

While I have never heard this expressed, perhaps they share colors between the two brands in an effort to cast a positive glow on the Honda brand?

Ha ha, Black Currant Pearl! I sold quite a few of that color on the Integra. However, if they had simply offered black on the sedan, I'm sure that would have sold just as well.

I had a 98 BCP Accord & loved it. In some lights it was more blac, some more purple/indigo & in some lights it was more maroon.

did the sumatra interior do well for acura? they really do need to branch out of the black/grey/beige interiors.

I don't think it did well. To the best of my knowledge, I never even saw it in person. Umber seemed to be an "acquired" taste. In the MDX it was ok, but less so on the TL.

I had a 1998 Black Currant Pearl V6 Coupe with Quartz Leather Interior that I drove for 10 years, before I traded it in for the 2008 V6 Coupe in Nighthawk Black Pearl that I am currently driving. When I traded in the 1998 they said they were surprised at how good the paint looked (saying that some owners had problems with that paint color, which was why the color was discontinued). I had no problems with my paint at all, so I don't get it? I am with the rest of you - Bring it Back!!!!! When I bought my 2008, if Black Currant Pearl had been available I would have purchased it then, and still would today!!!!!!

Most interesting, thank you for your post. I have to say that back when we were selling Black Currant, all I could wish for was a simple "black" without the purple component. I remember so many people asking us why you couldn't get an Integra sedan with "regular" black. Quite honestly, there have been very few champions of that color, it's nice to hear another viewpoint.
