I choose black even though it wasnt my first choice. They had a car with the options I wanted, so I got it. It's amazing how many people ask me about the car when i get gas. Lovin it!

I ordered Blue, but when it had not arrived almost 4 months after the first cars began shipping, I took the only car the dealer could find that matched my options - Black. I now love the black, and I am glad I didn't get the blue, except for the exclusivity.

Red. Had to have it shipped from 1,000 miles away to get the options I wanted, but red was the only color I was shopping for.

My first choice was Thunder Gray followed by White. I swore I would never get another black car but that's what I ended up with. I'm happy with it.

i was open to pretty much any car, as long as it was black with black recaros and 6MT... i ended up with that, polished wheels, roof and suede.

I originally wanted a thunder grey, and went to the dealer to test drive one. They had the white there also, and the color really took me in person. For some reason pics dont really do the white justice.

Why not? This is a poll from forum members which do not necessarily mesh with national numbers. I'd rather know what the people in here are getting and why?

Well, assuming I finally get my CTS-V Coupe, it will be Radiant Silver...

But in the mean time, you, vcoupe11 and myself have the "invisible" color option...

2010 Blue Diamond Tricoat. I admit it is a weird color, but it certainly has grown on me.

Joe,
That would be "Stealth Grey" in my case :(

Well Gary,

In my case, it's officially a black car now. I got the magic call at 9:30 AM and picked it up at noon. It seemed like an agonizing eternity to get here, but like the other guys have said numerous times, it is worth the wait. The car is an absolute blast to drive. Hats off to the men & women that design and build these cars.

Only 76 Blue Diamonds were made for MY 2009. It was never said to be available with 2010, you have a very rare car - must have caught it right at the beginning of 2010 production when the color was still available.

Of all the oddities, there is a 09 Blue Diamond in my small town. These cars are rare as hens teeth anyway, and to see another 09 V in my small town, 1 of the 76 2009s in Blue Diamond, strikes me as an odd rarity.

1st choice was Arctic White = NOT AVAILABLE
2nd choice was Victory or Torch Red = NOT AVAILABLE
3rd choice was Silver with Red or Burgundy interior accents = NOT AVAILABLE
4th choice was Silver with black interior = AVAILABLE

Also, I almost refuse entirely to pay additional fee for a color choice. I can imagine a few exceptions, but come on - $1000 for red, gray, blue, those are just basic colors! Chromaflair my ass...

Congrats, Joe-

Glad to hear your's came in today (same as mine). I picked mine up at about 2:00 CDT due to rain here in the morning. 4 miles on the ODO and about 20 now. Supposed to rain tonight as well, so I'll read the owners manual and put some miles on it this nice long weekend...

Congrats again,

Terry

Hi Backup,
Yeah, I guess a blue 2010 is rare, and I often wonder how many there are. I got mine at a discount because the man who ordered it refused to take delivery when he saw the color in person. The dealer gave me his deposit too! Poor guy, good for me.
