Aqua Blue

Alright guys just back from local chevy dealer and saw an aqua blue HHR. In the shade the color definitely looks blue, but in the sun its a whole different story. Definite Green hue to it, Turned me off to ordering the color right away!! If you want a true blue, aqua blue is not it. Thoughts?

Man these comments are starting to worry me :(

I just drove to a local dealer and their website said they had 3 HHRs in Aqua Blue. I couldn't find a single one!! I found this other blue... "Flash Blue" or something... at first I thought that was it, until I used my key light to read the window sticker :(

I did see an Imperial Blue truck, and that looks pretty good under the bright lights, but I still think it's just a bit too dark for me...

I really wish I could see ABM in person!! Some of the pics of it are just incredible...

Just being honest man. Nothing like the Jetstream blue of corvette which is a true blue. I am a huge fan of blue and not true blue in my eyes. Imperial blue was there as well, saw on cobalt and yes it was dark. Had a 2001 vette, navy blue and that is what reminds me of. Think will be waiting for summit white to be available and put with orange int and orange stripes. Hope this helps, as I was going to order ABM, gray int, white stripes.

Another thing about the Blue Flash color... it seemed to have a purple tint to it at certain angles... so I think I'd at least rather have the green than the purple

My dealer has two ABM HHR's on the lot, one of which was parked right next to an Imperial Blue one, after seeing the two side by side, I went for the ABM, as the Imperial Blue was just too dark in anything other than direct sunlight. I admit that on the HHR's the ABM looks a bit on the green side in direct sunlight but less so in cloudy conditions. My dealer also has a Colorado pickup in ABM and to be honest, it looks more blue and darker to me than the ABM on the HHR does. I finally got to see an ABM Camaro at the Columbus, Ohio Auto Show and it looked more blue to me, closer to that of the Colorado. Hard to tell under the convention center lighting but overall, I thought the car looked great in ABM.

I'm surprised that you see the green in the ABM, I also looked at two chevy/gm trucks side by side and thier color was 2009 "code 61 Aqua Blue metallic" and I have seen then in the bright daylight ...... I do not see any green in it, all blue just like the med blue metallic I had on my custom 82 GM stepside ! I don't know how we are going to get a handle on the explanation of the ABM color ..... It's an awsome color for the SS

hahahaha, I'm glad someone agrees! The HHR is definitely one of THE UGLIEST vehicles I've ever seen... right up there with the PT Cruiser, Prius and most Toyotas...

I was actually embarrassed to be looking at an HHR window sticker while there were cars driving by... lol... I kept thinking "man, I sure hope no one sees me and thinks I'm actually interested in this ugly thing..."

Why do you think its called Aqua Blue Metallic? Just about all metallic colors have a shifting effect when viewed from certain angles.

I wonder if the aqua blue is the same color as on the tahoe i had that was bermuda blue... That would change dependin on the light/shade. I had to DX it in and was worried about it til I seen it. But it looked really good on it. if it was the same color or close to it I dont think anyone would be disappointed

I agree with you 100%. I went to my dealer and looked at the Aqua blue HHR and the Imperial Blue HHR. They were side by side and the ABM definitely looks more green than I would like. It definitely seems to be a Jeckyll and Hyde color. I've seen tons of pics from car shows where it looks like a really sweet blue, and some that make it look too green for me. I ended up going with the Imperial Blue.

I had one. It was my wifes car and she loved it... I wasn't especially thrilled over it but as long as she was happy with it. And it was PURPLE... AHHH I was embarrassed to be seen driving it. (which I didn't drive it much at all) but hey it got great gas mileage.... I had to laugh tho when I heard they were making SS HHRs

You guys should all fly up here, go to Oshawa and go on the hunt for an ABM Camaro. I think you will all be surprised by the depth the Camaro adds to the colour. If you live in Ontario, i suggest people go, it will settle you on the colour, or another one. Personally, ABM is my second choice after IOM

Ha sorry, I just personally did not like it... as soon as I caught a glimpse of the purple, I was instantly turned off to that color. This is also one of the main reasons I didn't want Imperial Blue... many times when I see a dark blue car, I can see a very slight hint of purple to it... it drives me nuts!

No offense though, just personal preference

Oh and I do agree that this should be in the ABM thread... maybe a merge? There's also one in the ordering section... ABM is everywhere! lol...
