If you have an IBM read

Please start taking the time to post more pics in the ibm pics thread. We are getting our a$$e$ kicked by the abm guys. Seems like people who bought ibm are not very proud of the color they got or just to lazy to post some pics on the ibm pics thread.
Don't get mad at me I just want to see alot more pics of ibm.

In hindsight, I would have went with IBM. Sick color with amazing depth.

I saw one this weekend and to be honest, I really didn't like the color. Way to dark for my liking. Obviously though, not every color suits everyone which is why we have so many to pick from!

I love this color; it shifts depending on the light source and angle. I just got back a few hours ago from getting Zoomer's cat back exhaust setup (which sounds great btw) so I've been busy driving around hehehe. Ron at Zoomer's really liked the color; he said it's the first blue one he's seen, all he's seen so far are black ones lol.

Here's a couple quick pics I took with my iPhone; I took these last night after getting my car from the dealer (they had to fix a paint chip in the driver's door):

PowerFreak has an awesome IBM. I like this color much more in person than in pictures, maybe that is why nobody posts. Pics DO NOT due this color justice. And I am not a dark color guy either!

Yeah photos absolutely do not do this color justice. You can't see the metal flake in the paint or the depth.

IBM is a classy, intriguing color - definitely not for the show-off if you've just got to catch everyone's attention as you drive by simply by using color.

In the sunlight it shows off the design lines of the car like no other color due to all the metallic flake; on cloudy days it is as subtle and beautiful as Mona Lisa's smile...

When people see it at shows I'm always asked what color it is - and if it isn't a custom paint job. I tell them no, it's not a custom paint - but then again, maybe it is since #7183 was made just for me :-)

I went with Arctic White rallies on my IBM. Still waiting for the sun to be just right, to try and take some pictures of this color

..Grown women have had near-sexual experiences upon seeing this color, I'm dead serious

i think IBM is the best looking color available but unfortunately only 3-4% of the orders are in that color. so in a way it is good it is a rare color. i have yet to personally see one in that color.

The problem with IBM pics is that you need a really good camera and a very sunny day to show the true color of this car in a picture. Almost all the pictures just look navy blue, you can't see the way the color morphs in the sun in any of the pictures I've seen yet. And I know I can't take decent pics for the life of me.

Just to give you an idea, here's a shot in the garage under fluorescent lighting. You can see on the fender edge how bright the blue can look when the light hits it just right. Compare this shot to the ones I posted earlier which look like a darker navy blue. The color shifts depending on the angle of the light... it's a very subtle and classy effect.

Last I heard, sales for both Aqua Blue and Imperial Blue were doing rather poorly! Less than 3% in sales each. Anyways, not a problem to me as I purchased IBM for my Camaro and love the fact that practically no one else around here has the same!
