How do Black or White 1LE look in person

Trying to decide on black or white. I have seen photos, but never see any photos of them together with same lighting.

For you guys that have seen them in person how do they look? Do you have any good photos to compare with? Does the black look to monotone? Thanks.

I'd go with white over black. For some reason I like the hood wrap on all colors but
black and blue. I think it looks particularly good in white, would really be set off with
some black ZL1 rockers too (only $350).

I'd probably remove the wrap if I got a black or blue one, and still be thrilled.

Hmm. I've seen both. I would say a clean looking black 1LE, just being washed is amazing. Clean and very sleek looking(especially at dusk). White on the other hand stands out, especially considering the black vinyl hood on any given day or time. Another beautiful color.

Each one has its pros and cons, just depends on what you like. I was also torn between the 2 colors as well as BRM. Needless to say I went with the BRM. My favorite color is white btw. I attached two 1LEs I was looking at locally. Hope this helps...

Thanks for the photos. I really like the black look it seems like it highlights the camaro bulges better, but I know how hard black is to keep clean and swirl free.

I wonder how they look on the track or in the pits.

I personally love the white 1LE. If I could order another Camaro right now that is exactly what I would order. I even think I would take it over the ZL1 and mod the 1LE to my taste with the left over money. But that is just me personally

Np!

I could careless how it looks on a track of in a pit. Be concerned with how it looks in your driveway. Just saying.

Did you actually make it home?

White with the 1LE is a no brainer.

Don't ask me for color advice. . I would go black if it's between that and white, but really I haven't seen an ugly 1LE yet. Try to see one in person if you can. Personally I'll end up with Victory Red if the 2014s don't come out with a color I have to have.
