Would it be worth painting my car?

I had just bought a 2012 Camaro LS with a silver paint job. I really didnt want silver but the same car in white for some reason cost 2000$ more then the silver lol. I was wondering would it be worth painting the car or should i just keep the original color?

Its worth it if your willing/wanting to pay whatever the amount is to paint it.

well, you're going to be looking at a lot more than $2000 to make it all white...so whether it's worth it or not is up to you

Seriously, probably not worth it, not a quality color change. I'd say it would be cheaper to just go with what you've got, and then one day if it bugs you that much, like in a year or two or more, then trade for another color. Personally I like your color, but that's the thing, different strokes for different folks.

A top quality paint job for a whole car costs between $8-$10,000 depending on your area. Even if you paint it white, there will still be silver in some areas unless you pay even more for them to dissemble the car.
