Metallic silver is boring...but hides imperfections well. I went out and bought a midnight blue (IBM) car.
Sighh.

Anyway, go for the color with the metallic flake. Now, if it was a Pearl Black...oh my.

Of course it's not going to show as much as black, but that goes w/o saying. That's like saying black looks better when it's clean. Well, of course it does....

I have a black one and would get AGM if I were to buy another.

I really like the black. Yes, maintaining the paint is a pain, but it really looks awesome when clean.

My main reason is that black accents don't work as well on an already black car (wheels, tail light bezels, stripes, etc.).

I am very set on doing my wheels in Black Chrome.

AGM! Black is beautiful but I got rid of my black 1LT because it was just too hard to keep clean and looks like crap when it's dirty. AGM would be better, but will still show dirt pretty bad. THAT is why I went with SIM for my new SS.

I gotta say though... if I lived on a dirt road I would NOT be driving a beautiful Camaro down it.

My house is on a dirt road, but i only have to drive probably 10 feet before I get to my driveway. I will have to drive VERY SLOW, that way I kick up minimal dust And I have so far promised myself weekly carwashes and monthly detailing. lol

Black is good looking, but sure is hard to keep up,

But that AGM is real sharp too and may just be a little easier to keep looking new, might hide scratches and chips a little better.

Go Black, but get the paint protectant. Extra bucks, but shines and no swirl marks.

I found the thread, but do you buy the bowtie and insert it into your own housing after you take out your yellow bowtie?

Thanks everyone for all of your opinions! Y'all have reassured my want of AGM, and Im going with that. (Probably would have gone with that anyways... Safer choice.)

AGM is gorgeous, especially when the sun hits that metallic flake. I really liked the car before I picked it up, then when I picked it up from the dealership, I took one look at it, and fell IN LOVE. You will not be disappointed with this color.

I did consider it awhile back but I threw it away because I prefer AGM and Black to all of the other colors. I liked the look of the blue in the sunlight also, but AGM definitely is a more stealthy, mature color. It fits my personality and will translate well when I'm a few years older. And since its a neutral color, if the time ever comes for me to sell or trade in, AGM has a higher resale value. So blue is out of the question for me unless I absolutely fall in love with it at the dealership. But I think it's safe to say I will be choosing AGM! Thanks for the option though. It really gives me the opportunity to think back and reconsider.

When on the hunt I had 3 colors I could live with 1st choice was Black and then AGM and Victory Red in that order.. so happened to find an AGM on the lot and I remember wishing it was black but settling for it since it had the options I had wanted. After less than a month I was happy I had AGM over black.. easier care (the weather here has been crappy and ive held off giving her a bath with all the rain, and she still looks decent), i like that its not as common as black, and that it goes really well with the black accents.. and it still keeps that "stealth" look that black has.. during the night its hard to tell if its black or AGM from pictures and in the day.....

But hey, if you happen to see a black one on the lot that has everything else you're looking for, black is still my #2 choice.. i have no experience with a black car and the care it needs but _everyone_ i know has been saying that black comes with more work to keep it looking nice.
