Well look at the plus side. If you custom paint it to a non factory and do good. Find a good paint shop and if you like DIY you can do a lot of the prep yourself (sand / tape / primer etc).

I like it. Kinda reminds me of a "green" version of the Atomic Orange Metallic offered on 07 and up Corvettes. That orange is what I always wanted offered.

But, one thing I HATE is red and green colors together. With that said, this car with an RS package would have red badges. First thing I'd have to do is swap out with regular silver SS badges. Very small issue and would not affect my descision to order.

I like it. Now I love my CGM, but if we got confirmation that this is indeed the green offered, and depending on how far away this color is when my number is called, I'll consider this Synergy Green Metallic...

Yeah but I seem to remember he was saying he didn't want to reveal anything until "it", whatever "it" is, is official. That does not mean anything "fizzled". "It" just has not been finalized and released yet.

Silver? On my monitor here, this seems pretty close to the image of the Silverado, despite looking a little more stylized.

But then again, I may be a little biased. I love this car.

I'm going to buy mine in silver, but if they offered it, I would get it in true metallic hunter green or British Racing Green (the same shade on the Bullitt Mustang). That dark, rich green with white rally stripes is just awesome.

If I did get it in that color, I would seriously consider powder coating my rims flat black, or getting rims that are coated and keep the stock rims sepparate.

There's something very stately and at the same time very sporty about that shade of green. It's like a purist color.

Certainly not the green I would have imagined them putting on the new Camaro and absolutely not the green that I would buy. Oh well, guess I'll end up going with another color instead of that washed out green.

Unless that Synergy Green Metallic looks a lot different in person (and I can't imagine it getting better) than I only have one response:

This sure is one ugly color!!! This is the only color that I've seen so far that I actually completely dislike on the new Camaro... and I noticed that it conveniently resembles this same color:
