i do like the clean look, though i like making mine different yours or any one else...
I think that would look cool.

My splitter and the center of the diffuser is satin black. I wish I had painted my side skirts the same black, instead of IBM, I think it would have really tied everything together.

Did they throw in the Cruze as an incentive to buy the Camaro SS?

You also need to delete the "coming soon" part of your signature!!

Congrats on getting a great car. I guess that should be "cars".
Thanks LOL Yeah it was a Freebie LOL Could have been another Camaro but it's a little too much for the daughter. She loves the Cruze and will be driving it quite a bit .

Car looks great Rockin the BlueSS.Black does appear to contrast nice with IBM Just more a fan here personally of Gloss Colors and/or Black Chrome. If you end up doing what you want Maybe go with some black wheels as well. Should go great with the changes you want to make. Good luck with it. Look forward to some pix when it's done.

My daughter just got a Cruze also. An IBM RS LT!!! Same color as dad's car...like father, like daughter...

Best thing about it is she got her own financing, and I'm not on the hook for a penny!!!

The splitter ~1.5 inches lower, I would like to lower the car, but that is asking for trouble.

Waiting to see what SLP comes out with (splitter-wise), I may swap them out and lower the car...will give me a chance to redo the sides at the same time

Congrats to her! Must think alike IBM was first choice of color but there were none to be found from where we are getting the Camaro. Parked behind a CRMT LT Cruze today and it sure did shine in the sun.

[QUOTE=SSBUSDRVR;3124383]Congrats to her! Must think alike IBM was first choice of color but there were none to be found from where we are getting the Camaro. Parked behind a CRMT LT Cruze today and it sure did shine in the sun.

I bet it did!!! My daughter couldn't find any Cruze IBM RS's in stock anywhere when she was looking for one in the middle of March, insisted on that color, so she ordered one and had it in 3 weeks from the factory! Wish I had that same turnaround on my Camaro order!!! It is a nice little car that I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a car in that class. She absolutely loves it!!! She told me that they are discontinuing IBM on Cruzes for 2012. Wonder if that will be happening with the Camaro?

Yeah really like the RS Appearance pkg on the car it was a must have. Becky at Rodgers Chevy looked all over and couldn't find what we wanted(with IBM delayed No way to order right now either) but she found the next best thing and more.

Anyone have good closeup pictures on here of their IBM with RS Midnt Silver wheels?
That's whats on the 2SS Think it may look nice but seriously considering buying Black Chrome w the Core Charge. Found this searching the board.
What do you think with IBM?

My car has the midnight silver rims... there are a couple of pictures on the previous page... rally hard to tell the difference between the midnight silver and the standard silver rims unless they are right next to each other...

and just because i love IBM here are some pics of the car:




I would say paint stripes on the hood rather than the whole hood. You can't go wrong with F14's to match. That's the look i am going for also, ordering my F14 gunmetal grey to match my hood stripes.

P.S. Those rear light bezels look great where did you purchase them from?

Looking good, I work close by to where you are. I have a IBM also, maybe see you around sometime.
