Camaro Disciple looking for input
 
The Camaro Disciples will be meeting in a few weeks & I would like your input.

I do NOT want any OLD complaints. The Camaro Team are well aware of problems & take your complaints very seriously.

I am looking for your wishes, dreams and any changes you would like. Remember that most changes come with trade offs, $ cost or weight. What would you like me to present to the Camaro Team?

A street-legal version of the COPO!!! That's what I would like to see! The original COPO's were street-legal, why not this one? Who the heck can afford to buy a track only car?!?!?

90503 02-20-2012 01:04 PM

An aftermarket supercharger that doesn't void the warranty...

Is this an ask of how to improve the Camaro for future production?

ctk1 02-20-2012 01:10 PM

More affordably priced wheel options. 5K for the 21"s is a bit much.

TheHorse13 02-20-2012 01:12 PM

1) Get rid of that horrible mail slot on the SS model.
2) Make badging improvements. The current ones are horrible. Look at the gen 1 Camaros for design cues.

Old style gills behind the front wheels like on 60's vettes!

Russell James 02-20-2012 01:18 PM

Sun visors that block the sun, front and full length side. Should slide out and extend full length of the side window. Just like an Equinox or C/K.

Harmon Kardon or similar top quality sound system.

V8 auto trans with no AFM.

Keep the retro theme going, make it even more like a '69 Z28.... hideaway headlights, hounds tooth,

A little smaller, a little lighter.... but a hair more side window height, less roof chop. This will make using an ATM possible, and still look like a '69 Z.

Factory tint on the rear windows.

A couple real sweet blues like IBM and ABM.

Fascia suppliers that can match the front fascia to body color perfectly or have the plant paint the whole car. 2 cars in row for me, front fascias not even close to matching the body color. Yes, an old issue, but unless addressed will be a new issue.

Dirt nib free paint.

Mail slot delete for SS.hash mark stripe option.

Darth_Emma 02-20-2012 01:21 PM

The SS Camaros should come with a "sport suspension" option that includes solid subframe bushings, a lower stance (drop springs), beefier sway bars, and stronger trailing arms.

It should be possible to turn off AFM on the automatic cars and skip shift on the manual cars.

Nav system option.

HumanWiki 02-20-2012 01:22 PM

All my thoughts and additions are old or listed above...

but.. I will reiterate this one..

Lighter, lighter, lighter, lighter......... please... make it lighter...

oh.. and... ditch the 20s for something more useful.. maybe 18s that don't look out of place.

JoshBobGuptaMarley 02-20-2012 01:24 PM

T2-T3 ports should be standard. Make a deal with alpine to offer their nav as a factory upgrade. Same suspension should be on all models. I'm calling for the FE4 suspension across all models. It would be nice to see a bare bones SS made strictly in the name of weight loss and performance.

meissen 02-20-2012 01:24 PM

Lighter is going to be off the table until the 6th generation / Alpha.

I like the comments above about full length sunvisor, factory rear tinted windows... those are things that are easy and cost effective. More improvements to the DIC - theoretically if the DIC is tied into the same electrical system as all the sensors, with the right programming it could display all the items to make it compete with that news a little while back about the Ford Mustang being able to see a ton of diagnostic info in its DIC.

For the love of god, though, do not make the T2-T3 standard as said above... :yuck:

I'm not expecting that this gathering is for any serious changes to the 5th gen.

Touche - now would be good time for alpha discussions.

Option to have the LS3 on the automatics.

:iono:

TBone 02-20-2012 01:34 PM

Sport seats. Like a recaro option.

T.

Russell James 02-20-2012 01:36 PM

A sweet candy apple red 50th anniv edition. Similar to the Vette's 50th.

RubyCamaro 02-20-2012 01:37 PM

A real navigation system & improved infotainment center (ala Metra).

meissen 02-20-2012 01:40 PM

Cadillac User Experience integrated into the Camaro.
