We used to have a Mercedes with a similar color to ABM, and it got kinda old. Neither of us have ever had a dark blue car, and always wanted one. So we're getting IBM

At this point in the game, why not wait for the 2011's and see if the pricing is better when demand is down, and get whatever new options come out.

IMO for the ABM or IBM to look its best polished chrome wheels would do it. (My unsolicited opinion - I respect others choices as well.)

Can i make a suggestion. Take a look at a 2LT RS. Its perfect for a daily driver. You get the looks of a SS with all the toys plus great gas milage. The V6 is a very fun motor for a daily. Just a thought..

Order it without and then if you want them, paint them on.

I've never been a fan of white stripes, but they look very nice on IBM Camaros; however, I may get tired of them... I'll get bumblebee stripes if i get them painted. Thanks for the suggestion!

Going to order today guys! Can't be more excited!
I think I'm going with beige interior (the VR has grey) because I really like the beige dash/door panels (or whatever they're called)

Will never understand why someone would want to get two of the same car. That will get old quick. Do yourself a favor and check out the Vettes. If your wife needs the backseat, let her take the Camaro. Once you drive the Vette, you'll be saying "go ahead honey, you take the Camaro, I'll just drive the Vette then."

I do want a Vette, but we have to switch off who takes the baby and since she won't drive one, it would be a problem. my friend has 2 stangs, says they never get old. .

When it gets here, I'm having a solid white stripe painted down the center of the hood and onto the back of the spoiler, but without the side hockeys. they make the front bumper/body ditch too noticeable.

I think that would look pretty sharp. You're gonna have to put some pics up when that gets done.

If I ever get my camera back. My brother took it on a trip recently and I have no idea when he'll be back. Hopefully in the months it takes for the car to get here
Just got back from ordering it. Can't be more excited.

Could anyone be able to photoshop that for me by the way? Just to make sure that's what I'll want.

I already have a VR, but do you think I should get something different than this? Or a different color?
I just really like IBM and ABM, but i think ABM would get old after a while...
Just need some input.
Thanks
Funny, hubby and I are thinking of doing the same thing next year. We have an IOM. He wants to get another one (we both love IOM so much) but I want something different. I like the ABM with black or CGM stripes. It's bright and definitely stands out.
