Exclamation HELP - Color Crisis!!!

Aight guys, so I'm 17 years old and my dad and I are going to the chevy dealership TOMORROW to pickup a 2011 Camaro. We went earlier in the week to test drive the car and now the only decision I have to make is what color to choose! The first one is Cyber Gray Metallic. It has the RS package and the 20" polished aluminum wheels. The second one is Black. It also has the RS package but no polished wheels. They are both 2LT models as my dad does not trust me with a V8 and I plan on putting stripes on either car I choose. The only thing is, the Cyber Gray Camaro has been driven by a dealer whose been working there. This means its has mileage on it but they still consider it to be new. My dealer said he will have both cars 100% perfect for me when I go to make my decision but it's still something to consider... The black one still had the plastic on the seats and steering wheel. I still don't know which one to pick, what are your thoughts???

Get the black one. You don't know what kind of miles the dealer put on the car.

Cyber gray, IMHO. Much more of a slick color and with stripes (BLACK stripes), it would look SICK. A couple hundred miles is nothing compared to what you will be putting on it in its lifetime.

To everyone, I think gray is the one I want. But the dealer driving it is keeping me from being sure. Is it worth it if I like gray better to get it even though someone else drove it before me?

If they are considering it new then have them add those miles on to the warrranty. For example, if the car has 700 miles then have him make the warranty 5 years/100,700 miles. Shouldn't be a big deal as I've had dealers tell me this.

LOL I wanted to put black stripes on if I got the gray, and I already ordered some black chevy emblems to replace the factory gold!

Black is a mess to keep clean and looks bad when dirty. So spend less time cleaning and washing-shining and drive the ciber gray.

i love my black one but yes if you dont like spending 3-4 hours every Saturday morning cleaning it go with the cyber grey which is a good color as well. personally i like cleaning my car its my time away from everyone else so i enjoy it and when you have a nice deep black shine its all worth the time. That just my opinion you cant really go wrong with either one though

Have your dealer find you a grey one at a nearby dealership with near 0 miles and swap his black one for it. Have them jerry/roll back the car to you.......

My wife says to paint it orange or yellow. It won't be fast, but it will look fast.

Cyber Grey is extinct now...or VERY SOON WILL BE. FYI. It will be impossible to buy a new one a year from now.

Go with the Gray one. Having owned 6 black cars they look great when clean, but if this is going to be DD, which I think it is, then I would not get a Black one. Just my opinion, and do what you want as it is going to be your car.

Cyber gray is gonna be easier to keep clean and looks great. I think it will look better with the midnight silver wheels than the black.

if it has more than 100-200 miles on it, it's not new. it's used. doesn't matter if the dealer has been driving it around. i would NOT pay new pricing for one with that many miles. i like CGM better than black, but i wouldn't buy that one. why not order one? it shouldn't take too long for it to be made and sent out to you. that way you get what you want on it and it doesn't cost more to order one.
