Hello Guys and Gals!

I am picking up a new 2011 2SS/RS. My dealer found what I wanted and I picked the Summit White with IOM stripes and the IOM interior trim package. The thing is IOM paint is what I have really been pining for, but when I saw the white/IOM it is really hot! All of my family and friends say the white is the way to go, but every time I look at the IOM pics I drool as I also do for the white.

Why can't I afford both :mad: LOL. I love both and I need to make a decision in the morning. Both cars are out of state and need to be brought in. I guess I will sleep on it and see how I feel in the morning. I'm just curious what you guys think.

Here is what I am getting. The IOM is black interior with no stripes and of course the white is as described...I can't WAIT!! :D
2SS/RS
Auto
Sunroof
Polished ALU

You know what they look like, but here they are anyay! :)

If you like more attention...get the IOM. The SW is really beautiful but no other colors catch the light and attention like SGM and IOM when you're driving around. You should try to see the view from inside as you drive before you buy. Looking out at a SW Camaro is a totally different experience than looking out at an IOM in the sunlight...the IOM is dazzling for lack of a better word. [URL="

Envy,
Sweet ride you have there! I had followed a few of your threads when I was researching and I just LOVE SGM, such an amazing color and yours looks great!

I have test driven the IOM several times, but never the white. Now that you mention it looking out is quite nice on the IOM! :)

I never showed these pictures to the family, but rather the dealer site pics. Everyone just says the IOM is kind of plain, but I know better! I love orange and and this shade of orange is awesome. However, the white is really nice also.

The funny thing for me is I like the IOM and all others with no stripes except the white/orange...red/back, and yellow/black.

Oh man such a tough decision, however if all goes well I will be in the car on Saturday! :D

Mojave,
I think you might be right. I have wanted an IOM since I started looking at these, but have been blinded by the sexy white/IOM combo. I don't know who's car this is or what forum I got it from, but I have lusted after this car after seeing this picture.

Thank you! [URL="
[/URL] I was originally going to go with a black on top paint job myself but after I drove the SGM with the stripes off in the sunshine...there was no turning back.

And here's a little known ModernCamaro fact for you...we've never had a MOTM with a SW Camaro. So I guess if want to be popular don't get the Summit White.

All things being equal between the two cars....Get what you've always wanted and it sounds like IOM is what you really want. Good luck with your decision...Be happy with whichever one you choose :thumbsup: and remember to post pictures !!!!!

Thanks for the replies every one.
I slept on it overnight and when my eyes popped open this morning I said orange….no doubt about it! The car is available, but I have a request for how many miles are currently on it. If that is OK and transportation can be arranged I may be driving on Saturday! Come on Saturday!

We have the Summit White and I just sold my IOM SS, I will be selling the SW to get my IOM ZL1... The SW would be a Way Better Look if they had put Metallic in it like the IOM...

Well you see by my picts what I have LOL.. I do not have stripes since I like the less cluttered look and I have removed the "camaro" lettering off the side. If someone has to ask what kind of car it is then they dont have a clue. What ever you get enjoy....

I am with you, I think the IOM looks better without the factory stripes. But, there are aftermarket strip kits that look badass! For some reason I really only like 3 colors with the factory stripes: white/IOM, red/black, and yellow/black.

At any rate...barring unforeseen issues the car will be ready for me on Saturday! :D
