Arrow OFFICIAL BLUE RAY METALLIC (GXH) Camaro Thread

I've been looking for the new color, Blue Ray Metallic and finally found one at a local dealership. I've attached some pictures as I've not seen any posted yet. Some were taken with a flash and others without. It was an overcast day so not much sunlight and I must say the car could have used a wash but you get the idea. Some shots give you a good look at the metallic flake. The last two give you a look at it next to the black. One with flash and one without. Let me know what you think and enjoy!

It's just so dark and it looks so gray... I've seen it on the Corvette.

I hope it's popular, though, so maybe next gen they'll give us a bright blue..

Guess I'll have to see it in person before I make my final decision but it isn't exciting me yet.

I still like the IBM blue the best! Maybe it would look better in person...

I agree too gray. Glad I jumped on the 2012 IBM when I did!

I really don't understand the reason for dumping IBM for this... considering they're close in color, but IMO the IBM would outsell it any day. I seen it on a corvette and you really can't tell that its a blue until you get close up.

I've said it before, but this color is really dark. It only pops in the sunlight and when it pops it doesn't look like a blue, it has so much metallic in it that it goes grey.
Having said that, I am actually looking at this color for a 2013 Tahoe......interestingly, on the Tahoe it is an extra cost color.

This color seems like it has an identity crisis. Regardless, I like it!

It'll be interesting to see pix of an IBM Camaro next to a BRM in the same lighting conditions.

We seriously considered, as in went to see it 3x and test drove, a 12 IBM vert, but decided on 2013. IBM can also look near black in low light. They both shift in color. IMO BRM is only a bit darker than IBM and the flecks in IBM are a bit more blue. Very close.

Thanks for the pix!

Well, different strokes for different folks. Personally I am glad I got the 2012 IBM, but as others have said, final judgement needs to be in person. I like the color shift on IBM, seems almost purple, then blue, then near black at times. Wish I had leather though
