Yes it looks good. I do like the "Blade silver" better though.

I think it looks beautiful on the Camaro. Its a colour that certainly grew on me, and ive never liked silver before.

I have never liked Silver cars ever! They were always too "elegant" and "old people plain" looking to me. I always loved in your face colors... till I saw this car in Silver Ice Metallic at the show! For the first time I ordered a silver car. That should tell you what you need to know about Silver Ice Metallic! I did order Cyber Gray Metallic rally stripes to spice it up though!

The first concept drawing I saw was in silver and that is what I fell in love with. The silver car with the silver wheels - awesome.

I've seen SIM on Malibus and Cobalts, but have to see it on a Camaro in person to see if I like it any better. The light colors just don't show reflections like the darker ones.
