I think people were hoping for something more like Mopar's SubLime.

I didn't like the IOM and that's why I have a white one. I thought the IOM looked like tomato soup. I was hoping for a Hugger orange or Tangier orange. I kinda like the green. It's better than the Legend green on the Mustangs(YUCK). I hope the Seafoam green and the Deep Forest Green stays in Chevrolet's past where it belongs.

JUST MY OPINION.

I had to change my order from IOM to IBM because I kept waiting for IOM to look like Hugger orange and it never did. It was too ruddy for my personal taste.

I have to say that Synergy green looks much better in person. Far too many times we pre-judge some of these colors only to be impressed when seeing them in person. Having seen the actual color, I think it looks much better in person IMO.

I cant believe that they decided to drop ABM to bring in this monstrosity of a color. Do they really think its going to sell better than ABM did?

On a side note those rear brake vents look sick, alot better than the stock indentations that are there now.

I gotta say, I'm really digging the green. Pretty close to the Rally Green my dad's '69 is sporting, and being the green I've seen just about every day these past few years, it's a green I've come to love.

I have to disagree.
White rally stripes would look sharp on that.

My thoughts exactly! Glad I purchased IBM I don't want to be known for driving a TOAD !! HaHaHa Dark "POLO" Green would've been so much better IMO!
