IOM Exterior/Interior Combo (Montreal)

This is for those of you that have been to the Montreal show with the IOM camaro that has the IOM interior.
Does it seem like its too much in person? I am really torn about this package b/c orange is my favorite color, but am afraid it will be too much. One time I look at it and it looks great, another time I look and think too much.

Also, does the seats match the exterior well or is there a noticeable difference in color?

Thanks in advance.

Wow, I actually really like this shot of IOM.

Damn, why do so many of the colors have to look so good?

There aren't many orange cars on the road nowadays...maybe I'll have to rethink my color choice.

The black on IO interior really makes it look AWESOME. I have not seen it in person, but I am getting it. IMHO the seats are great looking and look very close to the color of the car. I think the light bar trim is what throws in just a little to much orange. The good thing is the color of the light bar can be switched out afterwards if the orange is to much. If you go with the IO light package and switch the orange door/dash trim to black down the road the dash and controls will still have the orange glow from the other lights, and the black trim will compliment the seats as well.

I will be doing this if the orange is too much.

My personal opinion is that if it had the orange panels, it would probably be too much. In fact I think the seats need to be toned down a little, but that's just me

Yes, the colors of the ext / int match really well .

It appears to be missing the orange inserts on the interior of the door.

+1 I noticed that too. It is a 2SS so I think it should have them... I just watched the video of the Camaro in abu dabi and it had the orange panels and ABL. Maybe this was a 1SS converted to a 2SS without ABL and orange panels? Sorry if I confuse anybody but please correct me if i'm wrong.

As for it being too much... I think its just fine and the side panels in addition to this might be too much for an IOM car. I like it on the silver car though.

If you think the orange seats may be too much, you can always get black seat covers.

Thanks for the responses. I'm glad to hear the colors match pretty well. I guess this is something I will just have to wait and see in person.

Good advice about possibly switching the panels to black. This would be an excellent mod as long as the lighting would still glow orange through the black panel??? I read in some other threads that switching the interior panels could effect the color of the abl?

I dont think it wil be too much, we have a photoshop of the silver indy car with iom photoshopped and i thought it looked great, hence my order
But it depends on each person, for me, i think it will all connect very well and look great!

gotta say... this makes me not dislike the IOM so much. i do wish it had the orange panels, though... just to see them all together.

edit: to answer the questions about the panels, it looks to be a converted 1SS because the panels are cloth. pic is from this thread

The orange interior is not an option on the IBM cars... not sure why, but I noticed it the other day when I was looking at the color options.

I think it looks like a show car with the IOM Exterior and Interior. It's what I am getting. Add the orange engine cover under the hood and it is even better. If the seats eventually seem too much, those can be changed out without too much trouble, and then you still get to have all the orange stitching, details, ambient lighting, etc.
