Is it just me, or does the Envious color look 100 times better in person (or in pictures that real owners have posted) than it looked in the brochures, pontiac website, etc? It's a completely different color than I thought it was!

:agree: I was surprised when I saw it in person and liked it.

I am liking the color much more now that I have it. It has grown on me quite a bit. The color that suprised me when I saw it though was Pure. I thought "white, how boring" but when I saw it on a Solstice, wow! What a difference! Put stripes on Pure and it will be a knock out!

:agree: Even though I chose an Envious myself, I was surprised by the white. When I saw it in the pictures, I thought it looked cheap, like a giant piece of plastic. But in person, the white seems ok.

When I was in the dealership after all the salespeople had attended a Ride & Drive, they all said that the Envious was the best color of the bunch. I think one person phrased it as "It looks like a very elegant color. It's not flashy at all."

All the colors look better in person. The car looks better in person. I'm the most amazed with White. DAMN it looks prudy!

Yep, it looks really good. The only color I didn't care for is the one that seems to be most popular -Sly.

You will be glad. I liked it far more when I saw it in person. I really love the idea above about stripes for the pure, that would be a show stopper. I would do some photoshopping you might be unexpectedly surprised. Maybe a steel colored stripe or two something like the Cobra that would match the sand and steel interior could be a killer.

Envious does look better in person......

I too saw Envious in person and yes, it is a winner! The Solstice looks terrible in Pure (White). It just doesn't do anything for me in White. :yesnod:

Anyone seen the Deep in person. I'm really having second thoughts. All the photos seem to be almost black. If that is the case, I'll just get black. The Pure is cool too. Or is that the cool is pure too. I'm so confused.

Looking for a GOOD picture of the blue.

The deep is a really dark blue, and in low lighting often looks black. The Deep looks best in bright sunlight, where you can really see the blue metallic sheen to it.

I believe Excelsior's car is blue, and he has a whole website with different pics, http://ddz.net/solstice/14/v/ Take a look at Zaino pictures, and you can see how much of a difference the lighting makes. I think the Fog pictures look really cool too.

Thanks Dengel. Me thinks I'll keep the blue.
It is B-E-A-UTIFUL !!:thumbs: :yesnod:
Besides, who wants to challenge an already overloaded ordering system changing the order - I may never see the car! :leaving:
