I think what you are seeing is reflections and shadows from the cars surroundings. I have looked at these pictures several times since I have a CGM about to be delivered and I see no issues with the paint. Why is it every little color variation has to be a paint issue? I bet that if 10 people with 10 different cameras took the same picture we would get 10 different shading compositions. Each persons eye sees color slightly different as do the lens of cameras. Sometimes you have to accept that your perception is just that and we all see thing through our own eyes and have our own perceptions. The settings used on a particular camera can play a huge role is how the image will turn out. Lets stop looking for faults and just try to enjoy the car. Granted, if there is something wrong with your own personal Camaro you should raise hell until you are happy. I just think to many people on here have spent too much time waiting and looking and eventually find something to find wrong. ENJOY the fact the cars are being built... that is why we ordered them to ENJOY them!!!

Thats what I thought too. Even the ones from the yard that looked kinda dull seemed lighter than expected.

Well the picture is kinda washed out, look at the concrete, even the midnight silver rims dont look as dark as most pictures show them, the color is likely alittle darker in person

You can see the Cyber Gray color at the dealership on other Chevys. It is darker than what you're seeing in the photos on here, but still very nice.
As for the RS rims, they are just SLIGHTLY darker than the reg. silver rims. You can really only tell the difference between the 2 styles when they are side by side. I think they should have made the RS rims ALOT darker than they are because there isn't much difference between them and the silver ones!

I agree.........maybe its the sun. But definitely needs darker (or black) wheels to make it shine.

I didn't want to say anything but I also see the front bumper being a little different with the cyber grey in variation..Not as much as other pictures we've seen of IOM however it might be enough for a re-paint.

But look at other pictures of the car from the front, you don't notice it nearly as much, if at all. When I saw it I did not notice anything until I came home and looked at the pictures on the computer.

the front fascia is on a different plane than the front fender -- and the light makes it look like it does not match - you'll see this when you see the cars in person --

It looks much more even in person. I couldn't even tell the difference in the one that Stephanie rode in.

When a car is painted there is a base coat added before the final coats of paint to provide an even distribution of light regardless of what kind of surface it lies on.

The color difference you see is the angle of the front end reflecting light at a different angle than the hood of the car, thus a different color. (We all know about the different "personalities" CGM can provide at different angles of light

Absolutely beautiful color! I suspect its better in person than any picture can provide.

why didn't I think of that .... I noticed exactly what you mentioned on the outline of the hood while I was there, until then I didn't even know that there was any sort of lines/creases on the top of the fenders.

There is a big change between direct sun and partial shade, between a surface facing the sky or the ground. When I was there, there were lines that I never knew existed on the car showing up, like the transition between the front fender and the C pillar along the door.
That's been my point the entire time about this color. whether you like the color or not, it shows off the lines and contours of the body better than any other color I've seen. guess it depends on whether or not you appreciate the styling of the car. I do.

BTW, the CGM looks GREAT in the sunlight. I knew it would. And yes, it does definitely have a decidely blue twinge to it, but thats the whole point of a metallic color -- to make it "multi colored" if that makes any sense.


Thanks for the pics to both of you!!!!

I agree.

But, then again, I'm the same person that thought a dirty black car in dark cloudy light was CGM.

I'm kinda meh on the CGM. It doesn't seem to have the metallic flake that the ZR1 I saw at the auto show had. It seems more like the traverse CGM which is really just gray. Now just waiting for the vert, ABM it is. Finally able to decide on color. Props to GM for making color such a hard choice.

P.S. guys you really need to lay off the nitpicking. Its a metallic paint and some of you are all worked up because one part of the car doesn't match the other part. Well, DUH, its metallic, different lighting, different angles, different vehicle behind the camera reflecting off of the Camaro. Jeez. I wish you guys were as active and involved in your govt. as you all have been in over analyzing this car inch by inch.

The metallic is certainly there but my camera didn't really pick it up that well except from up close. Also, autoshow lighting tends to make cars sparkle more than regular daylight.

true but i saw cyber gray traverse at same show. just looked different to my eye than the same color on the zr1. not that I would be shocked or appalled that a 100k supercar had higher quality, more expensive paint than a 40k people hauler.
