I am in the same boat as you, but with different colors!

I own a black Jeep Commander Limited, and I will never buy black again. I am torn between Summit White, IO interior, IO stripes, Silver Ice Metallic, IO interior, IO stripes, IOM, IO interior, Cyber Grey stripes or RJT, Beige interior, no stripes.

It's a tough one, but to answer your question, I am never going black again, so IOM would be my choice!

Its easy, if you are lazy, don't get black. You'll just obsess about how dirty it is 15 minutes after you wash it. But when its clean, black sure is purty!

Amen to that. I finally had to make a rule for my Black SS: No more than 1 wash per day.

All cars come in black. Only the Camaro is available in IOM! you could always compromise and do black with orange stripes or my favorite IOM with black stripes. You really can't go wrong either way.

IOM hides dirt really well, even more than I expected. I drive on dirt a lot, and you don't see it until you're only a few feet away. Black may look great, but you have to wash it all the time.

I don't think IOM looks red unless its really overcast or night. Here's mine on an average day:


That being said, I really like the black with IOM stripes, too. And add the IOM interior!

I like them both but IOM with a flat black upper half would solve the "keeping it clean" problem, won't it?

IOM is the way to go if you want to turn heads wherever you go.

You know, it is a matter of what you really want. I have owned many black rides, the last one a black 96 SS Impala. Stunning but a real hard ordeal to keep clean. I went with the IOM on mine and I think it is a great color. I think it might be a pain in the butt to match the paint, in the event of a accident. I saw a Black 2SS the other day with dark pewter stripes that was very tasteful. I did not think i would like the dark silver stripes until i saw it. Looked like a million bucks. Again it is a personal thing, but Hey you got the right idea on the Car. I really like mine so far, 2SS, IOM A6 with the IO interior. Only a shade of 1000 miles on it but it is a hoot to drive.

Black is a good choice but there are tons of black cars out there. But it is more work to keep lokoing good, and in some states like Oklahoma you don't want anything to make your car any hotter in the summer.

IOM is also a good choice, it will naturally draw the eye a bit more, particularly in sunlight. This can be nice, but it can also be bad at the wrong time. Between the two I favor IOM.

I love a deep black car, but the thought of buffing out the inevitable swirls later down the road makes me cringe!

Personally I'm torn between Yellow and IOM....

I was gonna say black, (it's what I got) however if youre gonna go with stripes, then maybe IOM is the way to go. I just wanted clean black, but had contemplated flat black rallys. If you want contrasting stripes, then yeah... I'd probably pick IOM.

I have a black with IOM stripes and the ONLY gripe I have is that the stripes look RED under certain lighting - actually more often than not - and I truly love the orange when it comes through. But bright sunlight def makes them look red. It's agreed that the black is work to keep it clean, but wow does it look good! Wouldn't trade mine for anything else, except maybe the DARK BLUE.

I too, was going back and forth between IOM and black. I saw a couple of IOM in person before I saw a black one. If you want a color that not every tom, dick and harry have, then you don't want black. If you want a color that looks absolutely stunning and is guaranteed to turn heads, go with black. Some are deterred by swirl marks. I have seen swirl marks on every kind of car and it is generally due to the fact that people just don't know how to wash and dry them.

Whatever color you get, don't let the dealer wash the car. If you are friends with a detailer and they truly know how to wash a car, ask the salesman to go to the car wash with the two of you and have your friend wash and dry the car. The salesman can witness any flaws you may find in the process.

Black is like a mirror when it is detailed. It is amazing! Needless to say, I went with black and have a friend who details as a sideline. I have not regretted my decision.

i was set on black or ibm. until I saw IOM !! cant beat how good this car looks in the sun, and how many heads it turns. Whenever I'm at a show people come up to me and say this is the nicest color.
I vote IOM, but either way you will be getting an awesome new ride.

I agree with a lot of the others. Black is very nice looking, but like I just told my cousin, expect to spend a lot of time or money maintaining it. when clean black is awwesome, when dirty or swirled... not so much. My son has a little black Yaris with an appearance package (Onyx) on it. He spends hours cleaning it and stresses over the marks etc. And its just a Yaris!

I have always loved the Dodge orange and I am sure the IOM is just as good looking. I have not seen one in person yet!

I had the same dilemma as you have right now, torn between orange and black. Picked orange because it stands out and is easier to clean. I love black too, I have a black truck so a part of me wanted something different. You really can't go wrong with either color because they are both amazing and suit this car very well. My guess is it will probably come down to how anal you want to be with the cleaning... good luck.

Thank you ALL!! This has really helped me, as i did forget how hard it is to keep a black car clean. I had a black car about 8 years ago, and me and my sister would spend hours washing it every weekend before going out for a "cruise". The black is sexy, but how sexy will it be if I don't wash it with immense frequencies??? I saw a dirty black Camaro on the beltway one day, and I just wanted to wash it for the owner . I don't want to be that type of owner..I also know that when I get my Camaro, I am going to want to spend more of my time driving it than obsessing over cleaning it everytime I see dust. I think my heart and my personality is telling me to go with IOM. I am going to do some window shopping this weekend and see if I can find some dealers that have both combinations, just so I can bring this decision to a close as far as color. Now that the 2011 info is posted, I want to be ready to order by June and maybe get it in time for my birthday in November.

I appreciate all the comments, the support, the links to other threads, and best of all the pics!!!!!

skip the gm 21's and get an aftermarket set with the money you save. or a 2SS.

I'm kidding. Get what you want. of the 2, I would get black with orange. I don't fancy IOM.
