ABM HELP ME PLEASE

ok so i go to the chevy dealership and i look at ABM all psyched "ooh this is going to be a bright blue color" i get in to the showroom and i see the ABM camaro and to me it looks like the jacksonville jaguar or miami dolphins teal and im thinking this isn't blue this is green but i looooove the color maybe the color i will order next november, but my question is, does it look like that all the time or does it look like the bright bluish. Does the colori do the iom thing red/orange in sunlight/shade will it be blue/teal sunlight-shade i am so confused lol and the ibm is navy/black... man i love the color schemes its like having 2 colors at 1 time and i saw an RJT today as well and that color is amazing its like a crimson in the repair shop.

First of all, you have to see the ABM on the car in the daylight, a paint chip just won't do it justice. Second, on other cars or trucks , the ABM looks different. Tom me, it's an intense blue, not too dark or light. Not like the IOM, on a cloudy day. Everyone who sees my Camaro, LOVES the color! But, Just MHO!

When its clean and in the sun its a nice blue that your looking for. In the shade its a aqua/teal/greenish color.

I love the color.

I feel your pain. Not only do you have to choose a great color (they're all great, but what you prefer), but matching stripes and rims if you go that route. RY and IOM are beautiful colors as well. IOM looks fantastic if you live somewhere sunny.

It all depends on the lighting (or shade) and even the sky or background color at the time. It looks different in each type of lighting because it reflects the colors of the background. Pictures don't do it justice. I wouldn't call it teal though. The only way to decide is to see it in person and then decide.

The color on my Camaro is what draw people to it. The first words out of their mouths is "I love the color". And everybody says it, even at red lights. Everybody says it that looks at the car. Everybody! Not some or most, EVERYBODY!

I agree with Paul, I'm sure all ABM owners agree too...I ordered IOM as soon as ordering opened up for the car, but saw ABM on a Camaro at Philly's Auto show on a Saturday.
I E-mailed my dealer from the show to change it to ABM and that I'd be in on Monday to sign on for the change. IF you choose ABM, you won't regret it at all...

I Love mine! I get so many compliments on the color. Also they are still in the "rare" category because not many people have them yet. The paint chip at the dealer is nothing like the real color, and if I had not seen one in person before ordering I wouldn't have ordered it either, but it is awesome and does the chameleon thing in the sun.

Mine is ABM with white stripes. Love the color and so does everyone who sees it. This color changes greatly depending on the lighting. Bright sun is the best IMO, as it starts to get dork it does start to look a little teal. Get it, you will love it.

Aqua Blue

My Aqua Blue Metallic is awesome, everywhere you go people love this color. Thank you that they have only sold 4% in this color so we have a rare car color here. I also have Cyber Grey Strips and the GFX which match the strips. Just a great color scheme. Thanks to GM

Here are a couple of pictures I've taken over the past couple of days in .RAW format to better capture the color. The first picture is the greenest I've ever seen my car. I get this early in the morning or at sunset when I wash my car. The other pictures show off how blue it can look, while still having some teal in it.

I don't know about the green hue, I see a little more of a purple from mine at sunset. All I know is that most people that see mine likes this color out of most. Silver rallys and fades really sets it off in the sunlight too!
