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?

I did mine for five bucks from eBay. Realy easy to do and cheap. Don't have to take the yellow out.
