I thought IOM would have ranked higher. I like the Cyber Gray best.

The biggest surprise to me was yellow. I love the transformers yellow, very tough looking, and hate the rally yellow, too light. But there was seemed to be so many people on this forum that love rally yellow, I figured it was just me.

I was very torn when ordering between, Cyber Grey, Inferno Orange, and Imperial Blue. I liked the IOM, but wasn't sure if I would in a year, and my wife wasn't keen on the way it looked in pictures, and neither was I. But it looked a lot better when we had more outdoor pictures, it really changes colors. IBM is a little too dark, almost black, and I didn't want to fight the scratch's and dirt. My wife loves silver, and I normally do too, but I'm tired of it already, it's all they can do is keep pushing it on us. I feel it's gotten boring, and plain. So even though we haven't seen CGM on a Camaro, it looks great on a vette, and changes colors in different lighting. I fell it will look great, and timeless for years to come.

I think it looks great, just not a red car guy.

I figured IOM would be in the middle, it's kind of a love or hate thing, i figured about 50/50, but the distribution graph would be high on both ends and low in the middle. Do you think we could have distribution graphs for all 10 colors? It would be interesting.

Now when can you tell us WHY they wanted this survey? Do they want to have their paint booths set up and all ready to go?
1. You are welcome!

3. No.

Sokay. Just read my previous explanation below on why they wanted the data.

I am going to go ahead and throw out a theory for what they will use the survey results for. They want to determine how many of each color Camaro V6 cars will be sent to the dealers as the demo cars when production starts.

Get what you want, not because others are/aren't getting it. In a few years Camaro's will be everywhere and in every color.

I'll be getting black, but after a short while I'll get it repainted to be my own one-of-a-kind paint job.

I've seen statistics many times where yellow is the least common color across all car lines and silver is the most common color. Of course, not many cars are even available in yellow, and it only works on certain cars to be honest (you can't really imagine a yellow BMW or Mercedes sedan, can you?) But yellow (and orange) is also one of those polarizing colors that people tend to either love or hate, so that's why you see a lot of forum posts with people liking it.

Thank you Camaropete for the excellent 3D pie chart! I wonder what conclusions GM will come to when analyzing the closer-than-expected results?
