[QUOTE=DCJ;859149]I have seen both the SW and SIM in person and side by side. To me the SIM just has best of both worlds....classy and sporty. That being said the SW looked good too. I would for sure have put stripes on the SW if I had gotten it, but with the SIM you can leave it clean if you like as it has that classy look. Stripes looks great on the SIM too. It just shows the lines so well day and night. Of course I am very biased but I did consider a lot of colors before going with my 2SS RS SIM in the end...I vote SIM Go with the color you feel yourself always gravitating back to. Good luck!
Thanks for taking the time to respond. I guess I still just need to see a SW in person to know I have made the right choice. I'm leaving my order as a SIM for now. I saw a thread where a guy had his rims chromed so thats always an option if I feel it needs more pop. If my order would just get pulled I would not have to worry about it any more!!! Sent an email to the dealer this morning to see exactly where I am in line. It will have to start moving soon to meet the time line they promised me...

Thanks SirBrad! Looking back to when my wife and I were originally talking about getting a Camaro when they first released all the colors....it is funny how the Silver was never even an option lol. Once we saw it in person, we knew right away it was the perfect color. Our original choice or what we had planned to order was the CGM. So many options with the SIM with regard to stripes and exterior graphics. I am about to install some Black Fades Gill Inserts today as a matter of fact to my SIM.

Did you get your stripes? Look forward to seeing some pics when you get them or when you get a chance.

Thanks! Wife was not 100% on board at first....but when she started driving it everyday, she loves it! I feel more guilty then she does about having 2 of them and she is normally the conservative one being that she is an Accountant/CPA...

SO every week I fly somewhere, usually its a city in Texas. I always rent from Avis so I can see the Camaros. This week they had CGM's, Black, VR, one IOM & 3 Sims. As much as I thought the IOM was cool & with dark tinted window it would be very hot. My ultimate car would be a IBM with SIM stripes painted on, but I just can't deal with the scratches & swirls on a dark metallic painted car. That being said. The SIM I have to admit just looked so much better to me than all the rest, and its the same feeling I get every time I walk through Avis. So it's been 6 weeks now since I placed my order & my dealer wont tell me where I am in line. I went to a # of dealerships in Central Fl. And they all wanted a few thousand over MSRP. The guy I ordered from was MSRP & only a $99 dealer fee, but what is that worth if you cant get the car in a reasonable time frame? Hell I just want to know when its going to move off of 1100. Anybody know of any dealerships around Central Fl with any allocations that are not trying to rip-off there customers? At this point I'm willing to give up on my GMS to just order at MSRP & get a production date....

Her 2LT RS V6 they had just gotten in so there was no wait. My V8 is took roughly 6 to 7 weeks to come in As long as your dealer truly has an immediate open allocation, it should take 6 to 8 weeks barring any snags in QC.

I agree...everytime I think I want to put stripes on mine, I decide it looks better clean. I am going to install some Black Fade Gill insterts from Autotrimdesign on mine in the next couple of days. That will probably be the only external mod other than maybe SS badges below the Camaro on the front panel.

I still like the looks of the Cyber Gray Rallys but I always come back to that clean look. Looks great both ways because it is a SIM and they never look bad

Here are a couple of badge pics I was messing around with. These are stuck on with scotch tape to take pics. I have not actually used any of these badges yet as I cannot make my mind up as to where I want them or if I will even use them at all....

Again these badge pics are just to see what they would look like in different areas on the car...



















Couple or recent pics...

2SS RS V8





2LT RS V6

Love the clean front end look of the V6. Wish the V8 has this same front end without the Mail Slot...

Since it's an RS, I like the red SS under the Camaro - 2nd pic. And I agree with you about the stripes - SIM looks better without them. But then I'm not a fan of the stripes to begin with...

Since GM is losing the GM corporate logo below the Camaro emblem, have you thought about putting the SS there?

I've seen other silver cars were paint shops sort of etch the paint (I don't know what the real terminology is, sorry), but the effect is sort of a checker pattern. Wish I had a picture. It sort of looks like glass etching. That would look good through the middle of the hood. Hope you can picture it in your head....mine hurts from trying to explain!!

Updated pictures from Post #224 from this Thread..

I replaced my Factory GM Matte Vinyl Rally Stripes with Painted on / Clear-Coated Factory look Rally Stripes that came out nice and shiny/glossy compared to the plain flat matte finish stripes ....

Keep the SIM pics coming! The SIM is my favorite due to it having the ability to go to the party Classy or Sporty.....for some reason when I see one parked somewhere or going down the road, it just looks like a 80K+ car What more could you ask for out of a car and the icing on the cake...it's a Camaro!
