How much was it and where did you get it? That seems like a simpler fix if I ever wanted to take it off... Is it good quality? Real CF or Vinyl?

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.
Yes, my aunt had the same dilemma when she was buying her 2013 Durango Citadel. She had originally wanted white, but pearl white, not WHITE. She ended up settling for black because it looked great when clean, but she lives down a dirt road also so its always dirty, lol. But it still is a pretty car, dirty or clean.

whoops! I meant crystal red... i think that's the darker one.. too lazy to
look it up.. if only they had that maroon, i like that color.. probably would be
the replacement 3rd choice?

lol this makes me laugh cuz there is a neon that i always happen to see
outside of my workplace.. lives down a dirt road and every day its normally
tan/dirt color.. but when it gets to raining you can actually see it's dark
green.

my job has a dirt road and i hate it.. but it actually doesn't look too bad
at all.. after reading this thread i went out on a smoke break to look at it and
its definitely not as noticeable as it would if black... it's been raining a
lot so i haven't washed it since 5/25/13.. here are some dirty pictures..

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.
I traded in a 2012 Black, next to color choices were AGM or BRM....AGM hard to find with the options I wanted, and a BRM was available...I have had to make major changes to make the car feel MASCULINE, the AGM deff gives the TOUGH look....

GREAT CHOICE :thum bup:

Thanks for your post! It definitely doesn't look bad at all. I wouldn't know any differnce from the picture if it was dirty or clean, if it wasn't for the Matte 1LE hood! Thanks for the pictures! I am definitely going with AGM.

I had to make the same decision as you because I love black cars but like everyone else said its a pain to maintain. Luckily for me when I went to the dealer there was no black camaros with the packages I wanted only the agm had it and once I saw it in person I fell in love with the color

I feel like that will happen to me too... but I have been having another color on my mind... Crystal Red Tintcoat? I saw it upclose the other day and I have to say, it is a pretty color. And it wouldn't be dirty all the time either... and it would be easier to maintain.. and the beige interior would look beautiful. I guess time will tell... but when I saw it in person, the Crystal Red really stood out.

I had a Black 2010 1SS, they paint was a bear to maintain, not the reason I traded in, but the AGM is a nicer color IMHO. has a green hue to it when the light hits at certain angles. AGM gets my vote.

Everybody and their grandmother has black. Plus, you'll kick yourself for buying black everytime you see the swirls, scuffs, scratches, paint chips and water spots. Go with Ashen Gray because it's a kick-ass color. You can thank us later.

That about does it. I would have made the right choice because I have always leaned towards AGM.

Not much looks worse than a dirty black car... or a clean one with shitty paint (not cared for). Some models just look awesome in black. I've always kind felt like if you buy a black car, you incur an unspoken obligation to keep it up. Obsessively if necessary.
