Ask them about the popularity of the yellows and you will probably get the same response.
I guess they have to cater to the small minority that wishes to be "different" and want to stand out from the crowd (like yourself Michael)
Mazda 2,3 and 6 buyers would generally have to be more a conservative group of buyers than 8 buyers, agreed?
Ask the average over 35y.o buyer and the response on either yellow or strato blue would be "yuck"
While you ask a buyer in their 20's the same thing, a larger proportion will respond with "that's hot" or the best one, "fully sick!"
