That's a good scapegoat...but I hardly think that was the only reason ABM didn't sell. None of the colors are accurately represented on manufacturer websites.

In terms of some very passionate enthusiasts' tastes? Absolutely.

In terms of business? No. It was a logical decision.

Logical - since when does logic come into play these days

I have to say this again...........ABM was not available to pre-order in October 2008? on SS models until about Thankgiving, this forum, probably had a good push for both Blues being offered in the SS, I held off ordering until it was available, for me it was ABM or White (which was even later availability). Remember the early R6P cars were over 80% SS models, ABM was only 3614 built, never had a chance, but great for me, love the color.

So, you're getting a 45th edition then? I ask because that's the only way you can get CFM.

Nope, GM announced that SGM is done in their changes for 2012 and there is no replacement for it.
