It seems Buick and GM have been finding a way to add cost without raising the base price. When did any color except white become an extra charge, anywhere from $395 to $995?

Usually Tri Coats.

or paints requiring extra steps its seems.

I know my sisters 2007 Lucerne had an extra cost paint...... Sharkskin


It really is a nice color. You see it and its like a metallic grey. If you walk by it and the light reflects off it-- the paint turns colors.....
Here is a pic I found online of a Lucerne with Sharkskin---- note the hood edge is reflecting a purple color.

Ive seen purple/green/reddish

According to Buick's web page, EVERY color is an extra charge. You get white or pay extra.

Except for non-metallic black or non-metallic white, my 2016 Q3 came with an upcharge for colors. Luckily, I like white. I guess Buick is climbing aboard the charge for colors train too.  Sad
