    I can't tell if I'm imagining it, but the blue which seemed so dark when I got it 3 weeks ago is seeming more and more blue to me.

    Is it possible that as the paint ages it can get more blue?

    Or perhaps I am seeing it in more light conditions and am noticing it.

    Any other blue owners have an impression of it getting more blue-y?

    I'll let you know, I get delivery in 1hr 37 minutes. Not that I'm counting.

    I think you just start noticing it more. I find mine looks more blue on overcast days, or under certain lights in parking lots.

    The blue color really depends on the light. Always has.

    I think they just appear to get lighter over time. For example, stare at the picture below:

    Now stare at it a little more...

    And one more time, closer...

    Doesn't it look more blue now, after you looked at it longer? :)

    What I like most about this color is that it changes with the ambient light. Darker in dim and night light. Definitely blue in bright sunshine. IMG_0099.JPG
