SIM or IOM?

I'm having a hard time deciding between these great colors, guys.

I love the orange-reddish ever changing color, but I also like lines. I've seen the SIM on a malibu on a cloudy day. It looked "ok". I saw an IOM solstice on a cloudy day. I thought it looked slightly better. I still need to see these two paints on sunny days. Even so, it would still be hard to pick without them being on camaro's.

Where you've seen the car or not, please vote which color you think is best!

The camaro is going to look great in both colors. It just depends if you want to have a harder time keeping the orange clean. I will say that silver looks great in person. Pics dont' do any color justice. I went to the Dallas auto show and i must say pics don't do any color justice. So it really depends on what you want the most. I personally say silver because the loud colors would get old to me.

I really don't think IOM will be that hard to keep clean. I've got an orange vehicle now (albeit a very different orange) and I pretty much don't have to wash the thing.

ZEUS95 Do you have a thread with pics of your IOM??

BTW, I would get the IOM over SIM simply because it is a brilliant color and SIM is boring in my opinion in comparison.

Jeez, I'd feel horrible trying to convince someone what colour car to buy. That's such a personal decision, man, do a little soul-searching and pick the one you really prefer, for whatever reason. There's valence here, but....
wait I've just been chosen to channel the voice of the hallowed assembly line (it has an accent): "BUY A WHITE ONE."

I want to like IOM so bad, but in certain lighting it just looks...not what I expect...
...of course this is seeing it on a solstice, the pics of the camaro look great...but haven't seen it in person...

Sim is silver it willl always be silver and nothing can change that now on the other hand iom is orange and red two colors for the price of one how could you go wrong. In all serious your color is your color, I narrowed it to yellow or black because sadly green is not available. i always wanted a yellow ZO6 (next purchase) so ultimately I went with yellow.

I have seen both side by side at my dealer. They look great but so totally different. Something about the SIM just popped when I saw it. It just drew me in. IO is a cool color. The one I saw had black rally stripes and was sweet. Something about the SIM makes me think versatility. Can't go wrong either way. My vote is SIM

I've been on this site for about 3 months now and there isn't 1 picture of the IOM that does this color justice. I saw this color live after I ordered mine and I was so glad I had choosen it as my color. Doesn't show dirt like some of the darker colors do. I think the sim is boring, nothing exciting in the sun.
