Love the black but to hard to keep clean.

I love my IOM plus a little easier to keep clean or at least hide the dust a little.

Okay, my 2 cents:

My 02 SS convertible was an award winning triple black beauty. I recieved first place trophies at Camaro Superfest, Ontario Nationals, GM Best Camaro and various other events. That being said, black is a very difficult color to maintain, even if it is garage queen (trust me). If you don't mind everything and I mean everything showing on your car get black, but if you want to enjoy your car without cleaning nonstop I would personnally get IOM. As a matter of fact, I did. You can always do black rallies, hockey sticks or other accent in black.

All in all, it is ultimately your choice, just be informed and enjoy your car

IOM is eye catching and sexy. You have to see it in person (if you haven't already). Pics does not do it justice. I knew this was the color for us, my husband wasn't so sure. But once we went and picked our car up, he immediately fell in love, and I mean IN LOVE with the color.

First vote is black but if I went IOM it would have dark tint, black stripes and black wheels.

I wasnt even trying to get reflections and I was easily able to and it wasnt even sunny outside and I was not even up close to the hood. This was also after spending the day driving around the mountains, unlike black it doesnt show every single piece of dust and dirt on it.

I am in the same boat as you, but with different colors!

I own a black Jeep Commander Limited, and I will never buy black again. I am torn between Summit White, IO interior, IO stripes, Silver Ice Metallic, IO interior, IO stripes, IOM, IO interior, Cyber Grey stripes or RJT, Beige interior, no stripes.

It's a tough one, but to answer your question, I am never going black again, so IOM would be my choice!

Its easy, if you are lazy, don't get black. You'll just obsess about how dirty it is 15 minutes after you wash it. But when its clean, black sure is purty!
