Sooooo.....That's where the "seat wrinkles" came from

LOL! Yes - you caught me - I weigh 450 pounds and have sat in every Sky made to date! They all have seat wrinkles and have a slight bias to lean to the left.

Truly - you do have to see it in person - it is stunning. I didn't think I would like the stripe, but in person it does look cool - could go either way on that. As far as the ruby red - the same dealer had one of those last fall (which I also sat in!) and it was magnificent too. So, my plan is to buy one of each. Anyone want to start pooling some money?

Wow....That Hydro Blue LE is really pretty. I'll bet in the sun it would be incredible. The Solstice Coupe IMO looks -really- off in that color. Again, just my own opinion.

I got to finally get out with some Solstice/Sky people today at Texas Motor Speedway. There was a Brazen Orange Solstice GXP there that just GRABBED your attention. That color looked SO right on that car. They said it was even more amazing in the sun (it was very cloudy). There was also a Bluestone Sky with the TAN TOP, that was knocked OUT. They told me they had seen a Techno Grey Sky or Solstice with the Tan top, and that car blew them away. I agree, that would be a very cool combo. As I said to them, I wish I could afford to buy 5-6 of these cars....

As for the seat stitching, both the Ruby Red LE and Hydro Blue LE have matching colored stitching used thru the interior. The word "Sky", the seats stitching, the stitching on the shifter boot and steering wheel too are the same color as the car. The other LE was the Carbon Flash, and it had seats that were different. They got black and grey leather that looked REALLY cool!

Supposedly, they made 500 Carbon Flash Redlines, and 500 Carbon Flash NA Skys. The same number of Ruby Red LEs were made. Dealers on here have said that GM will only make 200 of each of the Hydro Blue Sky LE. Wilmington will build its very last Sky within the next few months, so I hope you guys get what car you want while you still can brand new.....

I have to say that the Hydro Blue is awsome. The only thing that bothers me about the 09 SE's is the seats and stearing wheel are straight black, like Jeff in DFW stated. The 08SE has the light titanium leather inserts. I do like the blue lettering, but I still would take my Carbon Flash over the Hydro Blue. I'm VERY happy I got the 2008 Carbon Flash SE Red Line. Thats my 2 cents.

If the blue has a heavy metallic, like the Ruby Red, then I would love it. I know pictures can be deceiving, but it is looking like a flat blue to me, and I am not liking that. Makes me think Miata Blue.

Jeff, have to agree with you on the Coupe. Something just seems "off" about it in the Hydro Blue.. Maybe it's just the way the picture was taken or we are all just so used to the windshield surround being silver, I don't know.

A hair darker though.
That's my issue with the color...Love the shade, but that's a Ford color, and doesn't really fit on a GM car.

If my Sky were totaled today and I was to replace it with another Kappa, I'd go with the Ruby Red, and that's if I didn't go with a Solstice Coupe of the same shade.

I hope it looks better in person than the pic's....although a car with no metal flake isn't for everyone...I LOVE that our car is a *flat* paint. I do like the stitching on the seats though...looks sharp against the dark leather!!
