I agree. I really like it under certain conditions, but sometimes it looks kind of blah. If it was a shade or two darker with more depth and shine, it would be sweet!

I just saw an Audi on the road today with a grey similar to what I described and it looked awesome!

Such as.......in time for the beginning of ZL1 production in 2012?? I'm ESPECIALLY curious about the CGM "replacement" (Supersonic Blue perhaps?).

we are working on paint validation - so I would hope by 4th quarter - but we won't release it until we're comfortable with the appearance.........

The CGM replacement will be another member of the gray family......

If we offered 50 colors -- there would still be those who were not happy with the selection.

We try our best.

Is it really that big a deal? I think the 5th gen Camaro is dead sexy no matter the colour...well, pink would suck, but you get my point.

Flaming Pink Metallic (FPM) would really pop.

I agree with you about the car whole heartedly Nick...and I honestly admit if "whatever" color was the only one I could get on a ZL1 I would buy it with no complaint. I really do not know what color I will settle on, the jury is still out on the options...it's gonna be a tough call for me because I have never been able to order a new Camaro and have a paint color option. The only new one I bought previously was a 35th SS and it was rally red, the only color it came in, but that was a hot color I felt.

Can't wait to see it

This will be a long 5 months waiting on the release of the new paint (hopefully) and the release of the ZL1's final HP/TQ numbers and price.

If patience is a virtue, well, I guess I'm not very virtuous!

Wow, that's mind boggling how vast the selection is! Unfortunately or fortunately it looks like those days are long gone.

The reason why I say unfortunately or fortunately is because I'd love to have a massive section of color for the Camaro but at the same time I'd probably drive myself to the insane asylum trying to decide with that many choices!
