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.

Flip a coin lol. Black is beautiful but a pain to keep clean.

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.

the problems 17 year olds have .i would go cyber gray with black stripes .that was my first choice. to me black cars are a bitch to keep .yes they look beautiful when clean but then the dirt and scratches set in .good luck either way.

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
