Guys who have the Inferno Orange, questions please if you don't mind...

Okay....I know this has been talked about before but I wanted some feedback from IOM owners please My wife and I have the Silver 2LT RS and love it. I like it so much that I have decided to get a 2SS V8 Silver as well or so I thought. I have a chance now to get a 2SS Inferno Orange and am having a tough time with this. IOM owners, please give me some feedback.....maybe pros and cons with pics also if you don't mind. I was going back and forth between SIM, IOM, and CGM. I can pick up the IOM tomorrow if I decided to but again just cannot make my mind up. I wonder if I would grow tired possibly of the IOM but it is a smoking hot color in the pics I have seen! In person does it pop or is too much or overwhelming at times? Anyone out there who got the IOM who wishes they would have gotten a different color now? Thanks for reading and any imput or advice you can offer me Very much appreciated

Also on a side note...anyone have strong thoughts for or against the sunroof option?


Thanks again,

Don

IOM interior all the way man. Nothing else like it. Definitely the best of what is available right now. The accents and the ABL are superb. Nothing better!

Get it but the IOM interior would be to much, I love the color, so does the wife. The color is workable sitting next to my wife's red mustang, what a head turner

I rented an IOM. If you want to be noticed, then get it. I think the color mismatch is a bit more noticeable on the IOM.

I have had mine for almost two weeks and love it, I have all the options including the sun roof and it is really kool. The only thing I don't like is it is too quiet but that can be fixed. I have also put the clear bra on mine.Name:  100_1606.jpg

Just my opinion, but the IOM color is the only one that looks good with the Orange interior...really stands out!

Check edogs posts with his pics. Some of the nicer ones.

It, like many Camaro colors, is beautiful. In the sun it is awesome. Check the pics in my sig. There are several that have our CTF VR with Fbodfathers Yellow and an IOM.

I don't think it is over the top.

Although we have the RJT the IOM is amazing - go for it!
Sunroof, not for me. But to each his own.

I think IOM is by far the best color. It's amazing in the sun, it really shines. I've talked to numerous people at shows where there have been a couple other camaro's besides mine, and everyone I've talked to thinks that my IOM is much better than the other colors there.

Here is my thread with pics of my IOM: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=27184

Oh and I'm not a fan of the sunroof. I prefer the cleaner look of no sunroof, don't like how it goes above the car when it's open, plus you get the reverse mohawk without the sunroof.

IOM really should have been the poster and advertising color for the camaro, it's really the strongest and the one that stands out the most. It really is one of those colors you have to see in person to believe...had i seen the color when i did my purchase i probably would have selected it to far along to change now...and besides my buddy has the IOM color and all the jazz so can't be the same...that would be lame...

But after seeing his IOM 2SS/RS i was like wrong color choice on my part...gratz dude

Oh, and the Cyber grey rally stripes are a perfect color combo IMO...good luck bud on your decision!

Wow..thanks for the gallery pics I need to get over and see it in person sooo bad. I did not want a sunroof either and this one does not have one Now it is just wheather I will fall in love with the IOM in person or hold off for the SIM or CGM....just never dreamed it would be this tough to decide...ugh lol

What is making it so hard is I know whatever I get, it will be a keeper for years to come. Another thing that has made it tough is having our SIM 2LT, this color as really grown on me so maybe it has made me somewhat biased and has me thinking that I won't be happy with any other color.

Thanks for all the pics and feedback. The IOM really pops in the pics. The one I am thinkning of has no sunroof and has all black interior, which both I am a huge fan of

What to do....

In the shade its an orange car and I really like it. In the sun it comes alive. I absolutely love my IOM and have had so many people tell me how much they absolutely love the color.

Everytime I goanywere people just brag on the color. They tell me it's the best color they have saw. It's cool how it changes color. Also the IOM interior is sweet to especially the ambient lighting! But get what really makes you happy. But don't think you'll be dissappointed with it!

i have IO in and out, get compliments from EVERYONE! When i first told people about my order, they thought it would be overkill and way to much. But when they saw, one of the first comments were about how beautiful the paint is, but how it still some how is subtle. I dont know, youd have to see the car in person which im sure you have or will, it is beautfiul. No complaints on my IOM,
