The dealer can't add the mileage to the warranty, at least not as new. The warranty clock (date) has started, and should be sold as such. If the dealer tells you otherwise, make them show you the in service date and mileage, I bet it's already set and started.

The black may show a bit more dust, but as for overall cleanliness, they are both dark cars and will be dirty a lot, it's the nature of a dark colored car.

either way, enjoy the purchase, and come check out the local forums (in my sig) love to have you!

Black is more agressive looking. Flat black stripes and black out the bowtie and tail light chrome and debadge the rear....... that's what I did and it is beautiful.

CGM. I mine!! If you are really concerned about the mileage but want the gray, can you go to a different dealer? Like someone else said, CGM is going to be extinct so that makes our cars even more rare

Get the gray one. The dealer has already "broken it in" for you and hopefully has had all of the bugs taken care of. Just let him know that you expect it to be treated as a BRAND NEW CAR when you plunk down the gills for it, although they're all "used" as soon as they leave the dealership.

I don't think CGM is going to be extinct. Last I saw is that it was on constraint for the remainder of 2011 model year, but I haven't seen anything that says that it's gone

Get the black then put the silver rally stripes on it. When people pass me they stare at the car. I park as far from stores as I can and I come out and cars are stopped and checking it out.

Cyber gray with polished wheels, or have him swap the wheels to the black one.

That sums it up nicely

I agree. Get the black. It's brand new/no miles, and looks very sexy all the time, even when a bit dirty.

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???
BLACK! of course i am biased, as i also have a 2LT RS and i warn you, the black is a bitch to keep clean, and even when it is clean im using the oil rag to get dust off, but when its freshly cleaned and the polish is complete, wow imo the best color of the camaro.

Manufacturers warranty is 3 years/36,000 mile. How are they going to tack on 2 more years and over an additional 60,000 miles because it has 700 mile on it? Or are you talking about powertrain? I think powertrain is already 5 years/100,000 miles, haggling for 700 miles might not be worth it.....

You are 17 years old. Go with black. You have all the time right now to keep that car looking beautiful. When you are older you will not have as much time as you have now to keep it clean and then you will want a lighter color. You will regret not getting that black Camaro when you wee young when you had the time to keep it looking beautiful. Sorry for repeating myself.
I'm 36 y/o and I wanted a CGM but they discontinued the color and my next choice was carbon flash metallic. Notice that I'm still staying away from black as much as possible because I don't have much time now to keep it clean 24/7.
AND, the CGM they're offering you is USED.

BLACK!! You are 17!? Black is the "Badass" color. Much "sexier" to all those hot young high school/college girls Of course get what YOU like, but being as black is damn sexy, and its the one with no miles. Either way... its a Win/Win.

You may have more fun with the one thats been around the block But seriously you havent said how many miles is on the CGM one which may not be enough for a concern. Both are awesome colors cant go wrong with either but seems like you like the CGM more so I would lean that way,otherwise you may regret it every time you see one on the road. I have bought cars with 0 miles brand new all the way up to 10k miles (my Camaro) and honestly couldnt tell difference.

it is nice even though i constently get bashed because i bought it right after i turned 19 and everyone automatically assumes my parents bought it for me. I had my mom cosign so i could get it but that was all the help i got. I saved up since i saw the concept.

Get what color you want, its your car. There are people here who absolutely drool over certain colors that I dont like at all. I have a summit white and some people have 3 or 4 colors they would put ahead of it, but in my mind, thats the cleanest and sharpest of all the colors.

If you are still having problems deciding, I guess just go to the dealer and see them in person. Look at examples of colors with certain stripe combinations. I initially wanted Synergy green and the white didnt jump out at me until I saw one w black stripes in person. Every eye and taste is different.

I would go to the dealer. You might be surprised of how well the colors look in person. I was orginially going to get black if not black cyber gray, but then I saw an Inferno Orange with the inferno Orange interior and wanted that. Then one day I saw a Synergy green Camaro. It changed my decision no turning back after I saw it.

Just have to say.
All colors fit nicely to Camaro, but...

Grey and balck have usually bad way to kill shapes of the car.
One of the best things about Camaro is its shapes and looks.

So I would pick rally yellow or victory red.

That just my opinion you cant really go wrong with either one though
Yup, be prepared to clean it. I've always loved black cars, and I don't mind the cleaning most of the time. Just keep in mind that even when dirty, it looks pretty sweet rolling down the road towards someone

But then again, so does the gray! Get the one you want! Both are great colors. Also, I'm interested in how many miles are actually on this "new" Camaro.

GET THE COLOR YOU WANT. Cyber grey and black were the only two colors I was considering because I love the subtle/stealthy look on sports cars. I originally picked out a cyber grey one with black stripes, but that fell through and I ended up getting a black one and was just as happy at the time. Now that I'm trying to make my car more unique, I'm realizing how hard it is to do anything with a black car. Cyber grey with black accents (wheels, stripes, badges, etc) looks soo sick. Every time I see one now I get a little of that remorse, and you do not want that feeling. Black is soo sexy after a fresh wash, but within a couple days it starts to look really dirty. Don't even get me started on the swirls/scratches. Going black is a commitment if you want to keep it looking good.
