I ordered a 10 IBM 2LT RS with CGM stripes and polished rims. I'll probably be one of the last 10's made. I'm stoked and am now losing it... I thought I could make it til mid June....

Has anyone thought of getting their wheels chromed?? I saw a post on several company's chroming your stock wheels... I like that more than the polished wheel.

You should get as good a deal as anyone else on here ($1000 less than MSRP), but don't expect to get extra money off because the '11s are coming out.
yea but couldn't i say to him that you swore to me the 2011's wouldn't come out until aug and that i demand some more off or no deal because hes going to have to sell that car at a much lower invoice regardless no ones going to want a 2010 unless it's a great deal.. i don't even care if its a few hundred off i won't tell him that but you know what i mean havoc?

These like names are killing me. I guess since you ordered it and haven't signed anything that you will buy it, you could use the you told me they weren't coming out till August, since they are coming out earlier I'm thinking of going to another dealership thats going to get a '11 in June and get that one unless you give me a good deal. Try speaking to the sales manager. A lot of times the sales guy can't do that kind of stuff but the sale manager can. Its worth a shot and remember not to be pulled into something you are not comfortable with. You can always walk away as long as you didn't sign anything. Just remember though that you probably won't be able to get THAT much off the cars, don't expect like $3k+ off the sticker price, they do have to make some money and they will probably only go so low. Low ball them with a number that you are comfortable paying and think is a good number (not some crazy $1 number) and just keep negotiating. A lot of times they start a high and you can usually bring them down a bunch.

New Stripe Idea

But once I had it and was driving it I realized just how beautiful a car it actually is, just as it is. I changed the wheels and all my mods so far have been intake, exhaust, brakes, suspension (Pedder's), short-throw shifter, etc. which are performance improvements but do not change anything on the body of the car. I find myself extremely reluctant to do anything to the body until I can find something that I think will actually improve the looks. And believe me, that's been no easy task. The designers did an incredible job creating a beautiful car.

You can always have stripes painted on or custom paint mods done at any time. My advice is to get the car as it comes from the factory; live with it a bit and see how you feel about it. When I got mine I wouldn't let the dealer prep the outside of my car; I gave them strict instructions to NOT wash it so I picked it up dirty. I drove it home, very carefully hosed it off, clay-barred it, washed it and prepped it myself. When I stood there looking at that deep, rich midnight blue under the lights....wow what a beautiful color and car.

Live with your Camaro a bit before making any changes to the body; you might fall in love with it the way it is or just want subtle changes instead of something radical. You can always get stripes and whatever later.

Great choice on color... congrats!
I too am having this issue. The more I stare at my IBM the more I think it is classic as is. If you think about it this color goes good with every other primary Camaro color. Orange, Grey, Silver, Black, Red, even yellow and green.

So I found the local rod painter and here's what I'm thinking. I'm looking at doing the stripes in a custom color changing paint. I am just starting to work with the shop so I haven't picked the color palette.

What do you folks think of this idea?

I think you will have to be very careful as to what color the paint changes to, because not all colors will look good on the IBM. Just my .02.

IBM is a very classy upscale color. Stick to black, grey, silver or white.

I love all of the colors but I have a soft spot for the imperial blue with silver stripes guess that's why I own one.
