Inferno Orange vs. Black LS for those of you with orange cars

Im getting an LS. I will be going sometime early Nov to place my order (if they dont have one I want in stock.) Question goes to those who have the orange car. Are you happy with your choice? I will be tinting my car either way. I think the car would look sick blacked out however I also think an orange car would look pretty good. I'm just curious about how all of you who own an orange Camaro feel about them. Are you all happy with your purchases? If possible post up some pics.

my z was lemans sunset .. a pretty stand out copper orange type of color. you will stand out like a sore thumb. if you do something stupid, you will be seen.

it was a deterrent enough for me to get a more 'plain' color this time around. could not get away with anything.. : )

I'm not really worried about that. I'm in the military and just flash my ID card when I get pulled over for speeding or something and as long as I didnt do something ridiculously stupid and the cop wasnt an a hole I usually get off. Im not worried about being a target. Only reason Im leaning towards orange is its my fav color and 2nd you never see an orange car for the most part where as you always see black tinted out sports cars etc. I dont know its something I need to really think about. This dealer near me has a black LS and orange SS in stock so I will prolly swing by and check out how the orange looks in person.

No regrets what so ever. I tinted the windows and added a black pinstripe with a small bow tie symbol on the door. Awesome color!

Thats good bro. Checked out your pics, your car def looks hot. I'm really leaning towards the orange. Which one you got, the LS or another model? Also what tint you got on there looks like 20% or possibly 35%?

Edit Nvm, I just saw it says 1LT under your name.

Best color ever. Although I do like Synergy Green. I get more compliments on the color and every time I look at it I smile. Can't go wrong. Truthfully though. The Camaro looks great in all it's colors. (It's just better in orange! )

v6 your car is sick too. I love the orange panels you got inside to which I wont be able to get since I'm only going LS however I will def be looking to add them once I get the $$. I think the orange would look great with some nice blue exterior lights like underbody or even the AAC rear bowtie. All your cars look great.

Have the dealer install the trim panels if you want them in the beginning. Or you can install them yourself.

And it is your car, but I would stay away from the exterior lights.

IOM is a really easy colour to keep clean. I drove through rain twice and my car still looks pretty darn clean. i love me car, grabs soo much attention. They should call it Grabber Orange lol
If you like attention, IOM is the way to go. Everytime i step back and look at my baby in the sun, i cant help but smile. I LOVE my IOM baby!
Put it this way, i had about 20 people pointing and staring at my university when i roled in with my IOM, someone came in with a CGM and only the car guys noticed like myself. CGM is gorgous btw but IOM is STUNNING
Hope this helps, i really also recommend you get te IOM interior panels...love my interior.

I am more than happy with my IOM LS! I originally wanted white, but when I saw it in person at the dealership, I wanted it. Depending on the lighting, it can look red, bright orange or golden-orange. I've noticed also that it looks like a deeper red-orange when under the lights in a parking garage. I've done window tint and blue bowties so far...

I agree! It brings the car down a few points, but I try not to give law enforcement a reason to pull me over.

You guys are really selling me on this car. Only thing I'm going to be dealing with now is work. I work at Home Depot so I prolly wont hear the end of it when I get the orange car lol. Im pretty much sold on the orange and I will be going to see the SS orange my local dealers got hopefully next week.

I understand the feeling. When someone sees my car, their first statement is somewhere along the lines of "school colors".

not only am I happy....I LOVE IT. It was my FIRST choice after I saw it in person on a sunny day.....I loved it so much that that although my salesman just got in the car I wanted without ordering it (my second choice), I called him and topld him to order another one but just change the exterior color to IOM. as far as the tint goes, I had it done before I even picked up my car. Leagle limit on the front, limo on all the rest.

I'm in the same predicament, but its between IBM and IOM. I don't think there's any other color like IOM that plays so well with the sun.

I know IOM is bold, but you ever get those guys who are dicks who say it isn't a "Manly" color?

You can black out an Orange car. I've got black bow ties front and rear, 30% tint on the front two windows, 5% on the back 3, black stripes, unpainted GFX (GM's), and matte black rims.

You couldn't pay me to try to keep a black car clean in the desert........... Again.
