OFFICIAL BLUE RAY METALLIC (GXH) Camaro Thread
 
10 Attachment(s)
I've been looking for the new color, Blue Ray Metallic and finally found one at a local dealership. I've attached some pictures as I've not seen any posted yet. Some were taken with a flash and others without. It was an overcast day so not much sunlight and I must say the car could have used a wash but you get the idea. Some shots give you a good look at the metallic flake. The last two give you a look at it next to the black. One with flash and one without. Let me know what you think and enjoy!

That's not a bad looking color. I like it :w00t:

Still a pretty dark blue, why not topaz blue metallic?

BowtieBelle 08-21-2012 11:23 AM

It's just so dark and it looks so gray... I've seen it on the Corvette.

I hope it's popular, though, so maybe next gen they'll give us a bright blue..

quad tips and brembos on a v6 for 2013?

BowtieBelle 08-21-2012 11:28 AM

The pics are of two different cars.^^ Notice one has rallys and one doesn't.

heRS 08-21-2012 11:54 AM

Guess I'll have to see it in person before I make my final decision but it isn't exciting me yet.

BiG_TiMe 08-21-2012 02:50 PM

This looks like CGM with IBM flakes in it...

Thanks I thought about it after I posted and was thinking the same thing. Beautiful color regardless

c_LoW29 08-21-2012 03:03 PM

I dont dig the new style wheel though

2010 SSRS 08-21-2012 03:06 PM

wow, that's very dark and gray looking.

OPULENT BLUE


Sent from my abacus using precise finger movements......

DandDC09 08-21-2012 11:22 PM

I still like the IBM blue the best! Maybe it would look better in person...

I agree too gray. Glad I jumped on the 2012 IBM when I did! :thumbsup:

DITTO!!!:thumbup:

I really don't understand the reason for dumping IBM for this... considering they're close in color, but IMO the IBM would outsell it any day. I seen it on a corvette and you really can't tell that its a blue until you get close up.

b4z 08-22-2012 06:29 PM

I've said it before, but this color is really dark. It only pops in the sunlight and when it pops it doesn't look like a blue, it has so much metallic in it that it goes grey.
Having said that, I am actually looking at this color for a 2013 Tahoe......interestingly, on the Tahoe it is an extra cost color.

Dusk 2SS 08-22-2012 08:36 PM

This color seems like it has an identity crisis. Regardless, I like it!

Soonerfan 08-22-2012 08:40 PM

Love that color....

H0peful1 08-22-2012 09:00 PM

It'll be interesting to see pix of an IBM Camaro next to a BRM in the same lighting conditions.

We seriously considered, as in went to see it 3x and test drove, a 12 IBM vert, but decided on 2013. IBM can also look near black in low light. They both shift in color. IMO BRM is only a bit darker than IBM and the flecks in IBM are a bit more blue. Very close.

Thanks for the pix!

xkloid 08-22-2012 11:05 PM

Well, different strokes for different folks. Personally I am glad I got the 2012 IBM, but as others have said, final judgement needs to be in person. I like the color shift on IBM, seems almost purple, then blue, then near black at times. Wish I had leather though ;)

RacingSnoopy48 08-23-2012 07:34 AM

Its looks way to gray for me. you cant really tell what color it is until its next to something else. I liked IBM way more IMO!

Im with this guy, Topaz Blue is a killer hue and would look amazing on the 5th gen.
