My last car was indigo metallic blue (GM color) and looked almost like this...actually it was really, really close to this!!

Anyway...it was so perfect in lights like this and even in the sun it was perfect!! Anyone who ordered this color, in my opinion, will be really, really happy!!! I got so many compliments on the color on my car!!

I didn't order the color (yet anyway...) as I got SIM since the last 3 GM cars I've owned have all been some shade of blue...trying to change things up!!

I just realized that these pics make the ambient lighting seem more possible. Notice how it kinda has a clear outline on the entire trim. I think theyll get it to work the way they wanted to. I dont remember seeing any of the other panels having a clear outline like these. Im looking for the pics that i have of the ABL on.

Yes, I just love the lines on the thing. I'm actually not even impressed with the interior (I like a little more buttons and flashy lights, this is where Japanese cars are awesome), but the panel isn't "bad" by any stretch.

And the plastic in this car needs a good Armor-All application for sure. But I find no faults in this car and I can't wait to be turning heads around Maryland this summer.

I guess they had to skimp on interior quality to make this car this cheap. I just dont understand why GM is still walking the same line in making cheap cars made cheaply. Haven't they learn from other companies and their own past that this strategy does not work? Exellent quality=new and repeat buyers. Crap quality = one time buyer. Doesnt that just makes sense?

That's absolutely right.

That interior hasn't been grained. That is; the textures and exact materials aren't in place. It's still pre-production since they're working on things. Don't judge quality by pictures, and DEFINITELY don't judge quality from THESE pictures.

This interior will be on par or better than recent entries in the Chevrolet showroom, like the Malibu and Impala, etc. Don't worry.

I hope so cause ill be disappointed if looks like those pics when I receive mine.
Im just glad the got rid of the whole AC Delco look. If things turn out good with quality this is a good leap in the right direction.

You have nothing to worry about.
I've been in a closer-to-production-than-this interior, and so long as you like the layout -- materials, fit and finish will be wonderful.

I just noticed.... why does the screen for the DIC look about 1" shorter than the spot on the instrument cluster it sits in? There's a "blank" flat plastic looking thingy there above the screen that looks out of place.

Is this a preproduction thing? I don't recall seeing a picture of it before.

The screen is slightly smaller than the space it fits in...It's production, I'm pretty sure. Not clear on the "why", though...
