Nope, I believe there is couple out there. I spotted one at Center BMW in Van Nuys about few months ago. Not sure if its still there.

Every few weeks, theres a new thread about how somebody has found a Santorini Blue, and they can't believe its the only one in the country.

Oddly enough, I really don't like this color much at all.

The pictures make Santorini look a lot lighter than it is in person.

Don't buy into "the only one of its kind," it's a sales pitch.

The more accurate statement might be that it is a "rare" color.

In either event, get it!

You can't blame them. I'd have trouble believing the fact that it's the only one in the country if I found a new Santorini Blue in the country every few weeks.

Personally, my favorite is Jerez Black. If nothing else, always remember those immortal words, "If you can't be with the one you love-love the one you're with."
