I left the Midnight Silvers on there. I haven't ever been a fan of shiny wheels on performance cars, too much bling for me. One of the reasons I am not driving a G8 GXP is there was no option for satin rims. Oh ya, and the Camaro was just too close not to wait.

Yeah, the midnight silvers aren't actually almost black like the Chevy site makes it look, they're pretty much just a standard (non-shiny) silver. The other ones are more chrome looking.

Ditto. (We have the same car ordered ) Especially after seeing some of these pics, I personally think the polished wheels are too bright for a color like IBM. I think darker wheels look better. Again, just MHO.

Do we have any real pictures of IBM with Silver Rally Stripes?

I'm completely torn between IOM with Black Stripes or IBM with Silver Stripes.

Might be making an order next week and I'd really like to see an IBM with Silver Stripes before making a decision.

i can see why your torn...I've got a buddy who really wants the IOM so there's no way i could order that color and take it away from him lol...besides I prefer the IBM. but that would be my second choice!

I think the IBM with silver stripes could look great, but I also think it could look really bad.

The more pictures I'm seeing the more I fear the glossy silver stripes are going to look like reflective duct tape at night with how dark IBM is in low light. The silver stripes are going to pickup and reflect light significantly more than the IBM will.

Would really like to see some real pictures to know for sure.

When I was shopping for my current Avalanche I was set on getting a blue one. Had one picked out, everything was good. Then at the last minute switched to orange. I think that could happen again with the Camaro.

Just snagged this one, you get a good 3-4 secs of IBM out in the sun.

(just slap it into HD mode and pause at 4 to see the glittering blue!)

and this one -


Dont mind the gay guys...

I think you might be right with the grey stripes i ordered white and i think thats going to look killer. But just like you said its either going to look really nice or really bad. Hope its on the really nice part. This car likes nice at night and during the day can't wait to see more pics of this color.

Rhodes Chevrolet unveiling in Van Buren, Arkansas. They didn't get their V6 that was promised by GM to the dealers, however they convinced their only customer with a delivered order to let them showcase their car from now until Saturday.
SS (2SS I think), IBM, Beige Interior, non-RS

Edit: The dealer tells me these are the polished wheels. For those who have a better eye and knowledge, is this true?
If so, does anyone know how this was added without the RS package? I thought you had to upgrade from midnights to polished.

I found the two-tone seat answer, after going threw a few threads. Time to call the dealer to make sure the silver door inserts come with.

HEY!!! You hi-jacked the release of my car to the forum!!

That's OK...so far, your pictures are better than mine.

I took delivery this afternoon...for those of you waiting to see them, she gets Silver rally stripes installed Monday due to shipping damage of the original stripes. For all of you IBM guys and gals waiting...it is absolutely beautiful…in the sun it really lights up!!!

I came into this process with moderate expectations. WOW!!!….did I underestimate this car!!! We all tend to focus on the front ends…but the “hips” on this car are absolutely sexy!!! This car has subtle lines in it that you only see in person. I have not felt emotion for any car in a very long time...including the time in 2005 that I bought the first C6 corvette convertible (Lemans Blue) from the same dealership....now I have a new girl friend!!!

Working on full report for you all once the stripe work is finished…

GM4life...Thanks for posting the pics...hoped you enjoyed the ride. The ambient lighting can only be appreciated in the flesh...pictures don't show the mood it creates.

For all you IBM guys, the silver stripes looks great....not like duct tape as some thought...definitly like the laquer stripes of the first gen cars. At an angle it appears almost white. Straight on is a metalllic silver with a slight semi gloss campared to the that beautiful Blue base. Better buy a good duster though. I'm sure we are picking the best color IBM fans!!

P.S....One GTO down by 10-12 lenghs!! Break-in complete. 160 miles on 3/4 tank of fuel....must only have an 8 gallon tank......

The wait was is worth it.
