GM has plenty of bean counters that can show the cost savings from building all the cars the same. They will never learn. When all we have is black cars with gray interiors to choose from you can bet it won't be long till they stop making Camaros again.

Dude, take a pill and appreciate that we were asked our opinion. Why is it that some people automatically call foul when GM takes the time to ask our opinion? They are trying to balance financial issues with customer satisfaction. We should all appreciate that.

Well, I think it was due to all the outcry by enthusiasts that it was included as an option. YEAH Camaro5!

Black..........................7.06
Cyber Gray Metallic.......7.01
Imperial Blue Metallic.....5.90
Silver Ice Metallic..........5.86
Victory Red..................5.82
Inferno Orange Metallic...5.44

i also think IBM ranked very high because of past 4th gen owners who had that dark blue on their camaro's.

i'd get it because, among many other reasons, it's easier to 'hide' if, for some odd reason, you'd ever need to not be noticed

I bought a factory demo Equinox with Granite Grey Metallic that change color in different lighting...metallic grey, purple pearl, chocolate brown and figured CGM would be very simular.
I saw CGM on a Corvette at the Auto Expo this last weekend. Glad I chose this color. Color change was dark grey, silver and blue metallic. I ordered mine with no stripes and will have custom detail done when it gets here to make it my own.

I'm chiming in for Aqua Blue, because i wanted a blue that's not girly, and not black, and ABM changes colour in different lights too, so that's pretty sweet!

Aqua Blue Metallic ftw!
