CGM or SIM, which "pops" more?

I ordered the CGM 2SS RS, but im debating switching to SIM. After seeing all the colors, I feel like SIM pops the design cues alot more than CGM. Anyone agree? CGM is definitely the stealthy version, but I haven't seen any good quality tint shots yet.

I started off debating SIM and CGM but eventually came around to IBM. It is just a stronger, deeper color and looks better with the beige interior which is my preference.

Changed to RY, but switched back to SIM. SIM in person just kills IMO. Never doubt my 1rst gut instinct again..

There are a few CGM drive by videos on YouTube. Check 'em out.

Just called the dealer and switched from CGM with the midnight silver wheels to SIM with the polished silver. SIM is the color that i loved from the beginning when I saw the concept at the NY auto show.
SIM with the polished wheels makes it look like an effen MACHINE!!

CGM to me stands out as the perfect mix between black and silver. It gives off the best qualities of both colors. The stealth look of black and the clean look of silver.

Cant go wrong with either IMHO though.

To me, both CGM and SIM are too meh and neither one of them "pops". They just blend in too much with all the other cars and are the best at hiding the car then showing it off.

im split between those two colors as well. It comes down to which color goes best with blacked out lights and wheels. those pics of SIM blacked out look soooo hot.

The SIM bores me. I'd choose the CGM. In my case, I chose the RJT....

If I had to choose between CGM or SIM. I'd choose SIM. I think lighter colors work better on this car.

Have it repainted in flourescent green like the emergency vehicles, and add flourescent pink stripes.

That will "pop", as you put it.
