Well it was a long wait. Am I sorry I canceled mine? Yes. But at least my Mom stuck it out and I can borrow it until the '08 is available. I think the leather is superb, the color is gorgeous. I do think it is more subtle than the '05 and I actually like it better. It seems to have a little more pink and not as much purple and isn't as *loud*. What do you '05 magenta owners think? I don't think it's nearly as shiny as the '05's either, which I actually like.
