Exclamation Saw aqua blue today.. Help!

At first I had origionally ordered black... then I saw a bunch of pictures of imperial blue metallic and I was sure I was getting that... Well today I saw aqua blue metallic and it was beautiful combined with the white stripes.. I still have some time left to change my order... So what would you go for? (havent seen imperial blue) Imperial blue, or aqua blue. (and yes I know its my car and I should decide but still)

Aqua blue stands out more. All depends on what you want.

When I get my Camaro, it'll be ABM with white rally's. That combo looks so beautiful

Plus my HHR is IBM and I would want a change. IBM is a little hard to keep clean too IMO.

I have the Imperial Blue Metallic and I love it!! It is a fairly deep blue. Although I would like the Aqua too.
Good luck.

I'm in the same boat...unfortunately I haven't seen both in person. I think I'll be going with ABM though.

ABM is the way to go. It is not too light or too dark, just perfect. It will be the color people will be sorry that they did not order.

This is an easy one for me Aqua Blue Metallic. I am going Friday to pick up my Aqua Blue Metallic RS with White Rallys Stripes and I can't wait. Words can't describe how excited I am. Imperial Blue Metallic looks good too but I think it is too dark of a blue in my opinion. Plus my Mitsubishi Eclipse is almost exactly the same color as Imperial Blue Metallic and I am kind of tired of that dark of a blue after four years so I might be kind of biased.

ABM!!!...100% AGREED!!!!...it looks different in every light, just like the RJT, and the IOM....

BTW, I think that there is NO COLOR out there that would not look fantastic on this car...

Before going to Carlisle, PA in June for the Camaro/GM Nationals, the only colors I had seen in person were: RJT and Victory Red...but at Carlisle I saw the car in every single color made and each has its own merits...it's a personal choice, but I think there is no way for this car to not look AMAZING!!!

With stripes, without stripes, with ground effects, without ground effects...I could go on and on like a "CAMARO COMMERCIAL"....

I'll tell you that I ordered Aqua Blue Metallic and I know I'll be 100% pleased with it when I take delivery, but what do you want? Dark or light(er)? Something that looks black from a distance or something that's pretty blatantly blue?

I saw my first Imperial Blue a few weeks ago and was extremely impressed. Then I saw the Aqua Blue and was equally impressed. The ABM has a shimmer to it that gives it a lighter less serious personality, while the Imperial Blue was simply a stunning car making a statement about power and control. At first glance the IBM looks almost Black, until you put it beside a Black Camaro. So if you are about fun in your Camaro order the ABM, if you want to appear you mean business order the IBM. Just my opinion and the emotions that I felt when standing next to the 2 cars.

ABM is a really classic Camaro color, imo, just like the IOM which was a close 2nd choice for me.

Aqua Blue went waaaay too green in direct sunlight for my tastes. It is your car, you're writing the checks - you make the decision.

I will say that the color has received countless compliments when people see my car... every single person so far has loved it... even wrecked, on the tow truck, people were saying stuff like "Wow, that sucks! I'm sorry man... But wow, that color is amazing!"

Take that for what it's worth

Can't wait to get it back and drive it again!

Also, I guess it depends on how much you really like "blue" though... Every time I see an IBM, you really have to look closely to tell it's blue. It's very dark. It does have quite a shimmer in direct sunlight though, but for the most part it's just a very subtle blue. ABM just screams BLUE... haha

When I see IBM, I am usually quite unimpressed (although with SIM stripes, it looks great!)

When I see ABM, I am just floored every single time...

The colors like ABM, Rally Yellow, Red, IOM are going to get more attention than the darker colors. I have seen a couple of black Camaros, some of the road and some at the dealer. Black does not do anything for me. It does not get the attention as a ABM or a IOM would get, imo. Plus, darker colors like black and IBM are a lot harder to keep clean.

I have IBM with white rallys which is an awesome combo. I love the color. The metallic when the sun hits is amazing and is very rich when in shade or under clouds, but it is not easy to keep clean. Either way I don't think you can go wrong. I have not seen Aqua Blue in person yet. Good luck.

I was close to ordering a black and am so glad I got Silver Ice.

I am absolutely amazed at how easy it is to keep clean. The exterior is always shining. After 4 years of black, this is a nice change,

Plus, yesterday on the drive home from work a Silver SS pulled up next to me and I got to see just how awesome it looks on the road.

I'm not all about standing out, but this silver has gotten a ton of attention.

I actually initially ordered Silver, but then decided to change it to ABM or IOM, I decided to with the ABM. I saw a SIM in person it is a really nice car.

You should make a pit stop in Long Branch one weekend you're heading to or from Wildwood, I'd love to see your ride in person.

Yeah, I saw one about mid day (bright sun) and it looked a little green/teal in color.

I'll be driving down on Sunday morning. So let me know. Maybe can meet up on one of the garden state rest stops. We'll also likely be mobbed by people. I mean two Camaros in a parking lot.
