Well the other part of the problem may be that you're using a gif for your signature. They're notoriously bad for displaying proper colors... Obviously you're using it for the animated aspect, though.

I think I see what you're saying, but personally I like the teal in overcast conditions.

It is, but it's not a quality thing. Instead, it's the fact that most of our monitors aren't properly calibrated. That's something that has to be done to each monitor. Basically one way to do it is to print out a photo (with a good quality printer, of course), hold it up to your monitor, and make the proper adjustments, while you're looking at the digital copy of that photo.

They also sell monitor calibrators that you stick on the monitor and it'll handle all of that for you. Really that's just for people who absolutely need true colors on their monitors, though.

Correct as well. Does it look as good on yours as it does mine? Despite the off colour gfx... like you can read the words ok, and can tell that it's a top up vert?

Do you guys feel like this color takes away from the "mean" or "badass" appeal from the car?

Not really, (yes for Black or CGM) but i think it gives it more of a sleek, sexy look. Which is what i'm aiming for.

Personally... no. My ideal sports car has always been blue with white stripes (I was always a fan of this combo on the Viper). Black is by far the most "badass" and "mean" color, IMO, but blue/red/yellow just scream sporty to me. I'm sure others feel differently though, and of course this is all just a matter of opinion

Not particularly. What's wrong with blue? After all, the super Corvette was the Blue Devil.

Hey, you stealing my ideas? Pending the vert getting new interior colours, i'm going with black grey interior, silver stripes, and a blue/chrome (with hints of black... tint) just like my Chevy Cobalt SS SC. Check it out!!

Thanks! She is Lazer Blue Metallic. Another of GM's great paints that change from dawn to dusk! I think the ABM works with black, just too sinister for what i want in my car. You shouldn't have any problem with it!
