I can understand why you say that. I thought the same until I saw one in person. Pictures do not do SIM justice.

I keep going back and forth on the stripes for this car. Some days I walk outside and say, this thing really needs stripes. And some days after I clean it I stare at it and say it's great how it is.

People always say get what you want, but I don't know what I want.

Someone help me out! I keep looking at these pictures in this thread of the rally stripe package and really like the look.

What should I do?!

I would get the stripes. It really brings the aggressiveness of the car out.

Nah! It looks so good it doesn't NEED paint! SIM doesn't hide the beauty of the car. That's why the prototype was silver.

I agree with patriotpa.The sim on this car just shows off the lines like no other color does.Soon as you add darker stripes it takes away some of those lines of the hood.

I was torn between IOM and SIM. I chose SIM with CGM racing stripes for these reasons: It looks like a sports car color, looks like a classy color, it is a color that won't go out of style IMO, and it doesn't need the sun beating down on it, meaning it still looks great at night. Where as the IOM looks just flashy and nice sure, but it really relies on the sun to bring out its color. Night time IOM isn't anything special. And I agree, SIM can look boring on the internet, if you haven't seen one in person then don't judge it. It looks reaaaaal gooood.

Logan,

I chose the same color scheme as you for much the same reason. SIM W/CGM Rally stripes.

IOM and SIM were my choices too!!
If I were in my 30's I would have gotten IOM. However, being in my late 40's I went to the "safer" color for my age, LOL.
I didnt want to hear, look at that old man comming out of that orange car...

Agreed ! After hitting the half-century mark I thought IOM would scream mid-life crisis and State Police magnet. The comments that SIM "disappears" in the sea of other silver cars is fine by me - the more stealth the better. Not that I'm running 20+ mph over the speed limit - just prefer to be stealthy and staking versus targeted - no disrespect to the IOM, VR, RJT and others out there.

After putting on my hood spears, trunk black-out, defenderworx stuff I've made my SIM my own and glad for it.

Got mine exactly 2 weeks ago and I LOVE it! Silver shows the lines so well. When the sun is setting the color really pops! It was next to a black Camaro and the lines died out on the black. Black definately looks great w/ stripes.
I like the silver w/ and w/o the stripe pkg. Was thinking about getting the stripe pkg but hearing about the dust collecting on them. Less dusting = a happier me!
Oh and the ones I did see w/ stripes not one was appled perfect. That would freak me out. I notice that stuff right away.

Finally got time to wash and wax it. Tried the new Turtle Wax Ice and it was the easiest wax job ever.

lol! I am fighting that same battle. Every other day I think I want to get some Rallys, but when I see how clean it looks without them I decide not to. I also thought for sure that I would get Rallys on my SIM coming to break it up from my wife having a SIM, but the closer it gets to me getting mine, the more I think I am going to leave it clean without the stripes. Although tomorrow I will say just the exact opposite and will be getting some Rallys

Also having trouble deciding if I should order som Ground FX

I'm not huge on the Ground FX so I won't go with those.

But the stripes...today was one of those days I felt like I really wanted them.

In a week when I get back from vacation and clean up my car, I'll probably like it just the way it is.

I got the dealer to paint and install GFX on my SIM. When I tell you that it looks badass! Especially the back and front. You won't be disappointed, just makes the car look meaner. I am undecided on stripes right now, car just looks so amazing without stripes right now.

I do hear that a lot about mine. The SIM is the one color that can definately get away w/o the stripes. I thought for sure that when I got my camaro that would be an absolute definate. It looks great either way.

Woo see...the SIM looks great in those pics without the stripes...and then with the stripes it's like BANG!!!! Incredible. Love the blacked-out bowtie too. How did you make the gills darker like that? Vinyl?

Also, what do you guys think about this....what do you think would look better...a blacked-out bowtie with the silver outline, or a red outline?
