Upset that we aren't offering Imperial Blue or Aqua Blue Metallic on the SS? The reason is 'deproliferation' -- meaning reduction in parts and build combinations. I don't agree with the decision - and I don't think a bunch of you do either -- so I suggest that someone start a thread about it -- keep it clean, everyone - but tell us what you think!!! We DO listen - and we are trying to get at least Imperial Blue released on the SS.......(there are color keyed parts that impact overall part counts...) You as a customer couldn't care less about part number counts -- but unfortunately we must.....

I have been dreaming of a blue Camaro V8 since high school. It was what I planned on when the 4th gen was still on sale, and its what I planned on when they announce the Camaro was coming back. My Iroc was blue and my Blazer was blue. (My 4th gen would have been if I could have found one at the time)
I was planning on putting my order in on Monday. Now I am really rethinking it. If its not going to be my dream car, I don't think its worth the hassle of being 'first.' Maybe I can wait it out until GM comes to their senses.:BangHead:

Well it there wont be a blue SS available this year, then I guess I can still campaign for Jinx Blue for next year.

I will be ordering monday(silver ice 2ss/rs), but if a white or aqua blue Z28 comes out I will need to trade up or let this order go and get the color I really wanted.

I went to my dealer last night, and put down a deposit with the hopes of still getting my ABM Camaro SS... I'd even settle for IBM ... I'm hoping that GM will reconsider. I don't want to go to this dealer and cancel.

Aqua Blue Metallic with Cyber Grey stripes for me. I'll wait if I have to, but can you guys (at GM) wait for all of us with this economy? You have quite a few people here on this and many other forums who have waited patiently for this new car. GM talks about doing it right, and then tells us we cannot have any color blue on the top end cars. Could I get it on the LT (which still upsets me that you use this designation instead of the "heritage" badging)? I am trying to give you $$ for the top dog and now you do not want my money - at least not right away (if ever)? :screwy:

I had my heart set on that deep Imperial blue with white stripes...so essentially we will see a hell of alot of black and cyber gray SS maros driving around...fantastic, what a way to make a vehicle truly feel you have it personalized...but hey you can always spend 8,000 dollars for paint, or through a riced out spoiler and rims to truly have it customized...

I have been one of the few people who has been optimistic from day one, through all the pre-production rumors, but this is getting f*&#ing annoying. Why do I have to "hold off" on simple pleasures such as HUD, Back up, and a **** BLUE! I am sure most of you agree with me...this is my dream car, in fact we may not get a chance to obtain another muscle car years from now that is similiar to the camaro due to changing economy and technology. I don't think its unwarranted for me to say I want the **** car to be perfect, yet I have to wait for things that are ALREADY in circulation...not only in the auto industry...but for GM themselves. Awesome, Maybe its not JUST the economy that has you down GM.

You keep harping on production cost, costs, costs, costs...well if we keep putting things off and keep applying packages requiring you to buy the next tier model to get simple accessories you want....then I surely hope all this talk reflects on the price next year

I'm beginning to feel the same way...you said it perfectly. But, personally, after a little initial disappointment, I'm OK, with not having HUD (I'd rather buy the car ASAP than wait for HUD...and I figure it will be an expensive option anyway). But when you make it known that the SS won't be in available in Blue, that just adds to the disappointment...and make me feel as if I'm sacrificing something I truly wanted (even though your still offering blue V6 models).

And yes....your going to see an auful lot of Grey SS's out there...which makes me not want to order Grey.

Well, I wanted IOM until I saw that it wasn't going to be the same "burnt" orange that I've seen on other GM products. So, my next 2 choices were the Cyber Gray, and the IMB with white stripes. But now the blue is not offered, and everyone wants Cyber Gray. So....I'm not sure what the heck I want now.

All of this has bummed me out. I used to be so excited about all the stuff coming out.

I have been wanting a black vert, but a nice med blue like I seen on the G8s would make me happy.

Count me in as well. My first choice would be Aqua Blue but Imperial Blue would work as well.

****, I was considering IBM or Cyber grey and am pretty dissapointed. V6 only? wtf?? at least give the SS ONE blue option. Take the IBM away from the V6 and give it to the SS and leave the aqua blue with the V6. OR drop the nasty yellow and add blue. I'm sure blue is a much more popular color than yellow. except for the lame 'bumblebee' thing

like some others, I'm a little worried my cyber grey will be a dime a dozen.


I'm sure for the 2011 year, the Orange or yellow will be dropped and the blue added.

I'm with you....again, buddy! Now that the SS Cyber Greys will be the 'new black' as they say (read trendy), I want something different.:BangHead:

Well, if I can get my brain to stop being disappointed in the orange they chose, and actually try to enjoy the orange, maybe I will still choose it. Especially if they still don't have blues.

Besides, I AM a Clemson Tiger after all, so Orange IS my color.... :D

I am sure I sound like a whiny lil baby too, but if it was ONE mild accessory then fine. However, now it seems like we all get amped up for great news and while yes..a majority of the news is great. Yet we are still shafted on minor details, and though they may be minor...they begin to become a totality and create an annoyance...which results in us making sacrifices. I am set to put 33-35k into this car, I would expect to have it perfect....for me to not have HUD, back up, a PAINT JOB I want, the fact that I can't upgrade rims if I have an RS/SS without going aftermarket...or the fact that the LT has the cluster gauge and additional options that the SS1 doesnt unless you go through accessories...all this on items that are ALREADY offered on other vehicles in the market...im sorry, that is a crock of s---
