I will say that I do love how aggressive those white stripes make Number 9's car look though!

It is totally up to you on what you want.

I personally think that the interior would look better with the black leather and silver trim package. This set up would allow the switchblade silver strips to "move into" the interior.

But as I said, what YOU want is what you get.

I have seen the 20" polished wheels in person (on a black 2SS). They look totally AWESOME!

I have a IBM, 2SS/RS, Switchblade Silver SS stripes, black interior with Silver accents coming .... so I am a little bias

Me too! Can't to see them up close/personal. The look is menacing... so much so, the wife called it evil. At that point, the name and plate were born.

Couldn't agree more! Just picked up my IBM SS after having the silver stripes installed. The first thing I noticed was how the hood stripes flow right into the silver door panels when you look at it from the side. I didn't get pictures of the side, but you can see some pics of my car here:

man that looks amazing...I think the stripes are a perfect way to break up the blue. Amazing.

me too. Now I just need to pick a color. Errr, I have ONLY seen RY in person, nothing else. I saw ABM and IBM on the HHR and an Avalanche, but I NEED to see one in person. :bangdesk:

OMG!! That is a beauty!! I will have a 2SS with the same color scheme very,very soon!!!! The IBM is an awesome color. I had an 85 Camaro back in the day that was almost the same factory color. Man I miss that car. Someone thought they needed it more than me and was stolen in 1993. BASTARD.............

Ok... I love this color in the bright sun or under lights. I mean I LOVE it.... But once its in the shadows the car disappears. You cant even tell what color the car is, I assume its a black car if I didnt know better. Now I have only seen pics, so is this the case in person? I would love to get this color but this makes me nervous because at night will this car look blue or black? For example, three posts above, the guy standing in the door of the car. Its IBM but looks black. I dont like that.

I haven't seen the color in person, but I'm thinking (hoping) that the blue color will be more intense to the eye than it is to some of these cameras. I agree that the blue looks very dark and flat in some pics. IBM and Red Jewel seem to change shades a lot depending on the camera and lighting.

very nicely said mr MikeZ28 as for 91RS you also need to understand that this color is very beautiful during the day at night it will look black but once you get some light on it at night it will have a hint of blue which should make it look way nicer. this color is just perfect for those who don't want black.

Yeah exactly, sometimes it looks flat. I want the car to stand out at night. IOM would stand out incredibly at night. This is the reason I dont like dark colors (black, gray, etc) but IBM is a freakin beautiful color under lights.

Thanks Lakers, Im seriously leaning toward IBM with white stripes like you. Im sure if I saw it in person it would be a no brainer. I have it narrowed to down to IBM, ABM, and IOM. OBviously I like the metallic colors. VR and RY are nice but are too flat. Makes the car look cheaper in my opinion.

Oh who needs a front license plate...... My hope is the cop says "wow, I wouldn't drill holes in that bumper either" and drives off..... hopefully I don't have to find out!

take the fine, if it comes, as it's a lot cheaper than the longer term impact to the value of your front end!

To me that has been why this is a great color. Your car looks a little different as the light conditions change. At night it will look more black until you shine some light on it. If you don't like a color that changes with light then I would avoid this color and the orange because the orange will look more red at night.

I keep going back and forth about this color and if I should change to something else. But with every awesome picture I think it just confirms a good color choice! The color is just amazing. I can't wait to see it at night and if it is so dark it looks black.
