Has ABM been officially axed yet?

Got an email from my dealer yesterday telling me that if I wanted ABM I had to change my order by today otherwise I couldn't get it.

I had already decided not to get ABM even though I was pretty sure it was going to get the axe but I just wondered if it's been made official yet?

Nothing "official" has been posted that I have seen...... but some post have made it seem that ABM may be going away

They are also called the BumbleBee stripes but basically they extend past the hood on to the front valance. Also, in the rear they go over the spoiler and onto the back side of the spoiler.

You can get them from the factory that way, or are you having them painted on?

My abm is amazing, easily the most under rated color out there. So happy I got mine. If it does get canceled it just makes my car more rare.

I woulda ordered an ABM with white stripes if I didn't fall in love with the CG that I could drive off the lot of my dealer. Not having to wait 8-10 weeks for the build swayed my decision. Had everything I wanted and I fell in love with the color when I saw it... it's sick in person.
