Very nice pics, but IMHO pictures do not do this color justice.

I've seen two Solstices (one inside and one out on the lot) and a Colorado (outside) and the difference between them in person, and in pictures is night and day.

If you are thinking about ordering in IOM, or already have but are not sure about the color, find a dealer with a car that color and spend the time to go look at it IN PERSON.

This color may not be for everyone, but I am glad I decided to go with IOM with Cyber Grey Metallic rally stripes as well.

Just for more references, here is a picture of the IOM solstice I took at Indy outside in the sun, and a Hugger Orange Z28 at Indy that I thought was awesome.

I may eventually paint mine Hugger Orange if the money becomes available.

Guys PLEASE go see this color in person. It is redish orange but in person looks completely different than on the computer.

This pic comes very close to what it looks like (on my screen at least). But go find a pontiac dealer in your area and check out the solstice on a sunny day.

Cool

Well let me tell you, I ordered Victory Red, but after the pictures of IMO I will be calling my dealer and changing it to IMO.

Wow, I originally thought IOM was fantastic from the photos they caught of this thing inside the factory, but now... man, that's way too red. They need to drip some yellow into that paint mix. Might as well make it a third red. I really hope by the end of 2009 or early 2010 when I get around to buying my Camaro, they add an actual orange to the color palette like, let's say HUGGER ORANGE. I thought IOM was a little close to the vert concept's breathtaking orange paint but it's really not when you see it outside. It looks like every other photo of IOM I see. I am not going to enjoy the car when I know I am satisfied by its color only at night. Baaaah...

IOM really has to be seen in person. Photos viewed on a computer screen never do it justice, IMO. I finally saw it on a 2009 Colorado a few weeks ago. It's definitely the color I'm getting.

Paint looks pretty good except for two areas:
The face of the trunk lid you can see a considerable amount of orange peel, and on the sill of the front fascia you can see it there too. Rest of the car does't look too bad.

please tell me this isn't the same orange as on the Hummer 3! Saw one this morning at a local dealer and I wasn't too sure about it

Damn damn damn damn, why did you have to post these. J/K but now I'm really in a dilema. I love these pics and I'm close to changing my order to IOM. I don't know what to do.

Awesome Pics man, I wen to the dealer and looked at an 2009 colorado in IMO and
a cobalt on rally yellow, and IMO was my choice,

In person that Orange mettalic reall comes to life and shines. I suggest same thing and go check out a 2009 colorado and see it in person, and go view at night too. Under dealer lights at night and in dark it has a much darker appearance and I like that.

Plus car shows are during the day.................

Those pics are what my car is going to look like on day 2,
