Hey man, a fan is good enough for me... :happy0180:
Plus, I posted the Z/28 one.

yea i have been wondering about some of the stuff that was on the two cars. Rims, radio not mylink on the SS i think, PTM, buttons on the Z/28. So many unanswered questions after the refresh.

I am also curious as to what the delay is in showing the v6 1le and zl1.
Feels like they are up to or hiding something.

I think when they release the ordering guides next week it will be just as exciting as the auto show.

The ZL1 seemed to be bench mark for the 5th Gen refresh. The front end just doesn't appeal to me neither does the rear. Waiting for the ZL1 to be introduced.

Cheveey57 04-11-2013 06:38 PM

The tail lights are NOT growing on me, they are still ugly. I'll wait for the 6th gen. Hopefully they won't ruin that Camaro too.........

Dr. Evil 04-11-2013 06:57 PM

I'm liking it. For me the front is (slightly) better. The rear is a wash. I was glad to hear the Recaro seats are an option in the SS. Wonder ow a 14' SS/1LE with those seats would be...

Beehave 04-11-2013 07:06 PM

Is it just me....or ...does it seem like the paint quality has improved on the 2014's? I knowthey are polished more for these shows, combined with the lights.

Just seems like I have noticed on all the new 2014s vids greater depth....maybe it is just me sitting down with a :happy0180: enjoy the vid.

Recaro seat option...great...how much?.... Maybe a 2015 to the collection?:nod:

The ZL1 will not change in the front, but will have the 2014 rear changes.

I already know that. Watch the video, and tell me what he says about the refresh relating to the ZL1.

It's just you. Cars are meant to look amazing on the show floor. Kudos to the detailing crew and whatever products they use.

Your post did not reflect that you knew. It reads like you believe the ZL1 is getting similar visual updates.

Still not sure how I feel about these changes, I like it and kind of also dislike it. Soo curious how 6th gen will look.

Who doesn't know by now? Smh. Anywho. It's already been stated the ZL1 refresh will keep the front end from the 2012-2013 models due to the amount of time spent in the wind tunnel to tune the front of the car. The ZL1 refresh will receive the LED tail lamps found on the 2014 SS/RS. There will be a change in the rear diffuser to accommodate the rear fascia. So in simple terms I know what changes will be made.

i think the new 2014 camaro looks great!!!! and i bet the 6th gen will look even better keep up the good work team camaro

I like it, but jeeze. Make it more costly by adding LEDs, Recaro (which is Italian for money), and add add add add.

It's going to be ridiculously expensive. That's what I'm seeing so far. I'll stick with mine, and wait for the parts to get cheaper when everyone trades in.

Recaro seats will be an option, as the LED tail lights will be standard on the ZL1. As long as everything is an option, it gives us consumers a choice which is great! I'm looking forward to GM introducing some sort of Safety Tech option which in my eyes would include the blind spot mirror and front-end collision sensors. You can never be too safe!

Blind spot mirror? Front end sensors? You are joking right? These cars have too much crap on them as it is. So lets just keep adding more cost and weight to them. If people learned how to drive we wouldn't need all these frills.
FYI if you adjust your mirrors correctly, there are NO blind spots.

Sorry GM, but you just can't win em all.

This time around, I think the RS package actually looks worse than the non-RS models. Lets start with the front. Its alright or even good from certain angles. The problem is the extended length of the headlamps which just looks awkward and makes the Camaro with just the halos on look "wide eyed" and goofy. I will give it some credit though, when the front parking lights are on it helps to break that up, but I still think the grille should have been extended and overlapped the lamps.

Moving to the rear. Its even worse than the front. The big black diaper on the bottom, the big square hole for a plate, no indention in the truck giving any definition, and tail lamps with a boring shape. Its just not good. I hope to see something more imaginative here with the 6th gen, which should be a big change, even if it does end up keeping similar styling cues.

Camaro I still love you, but this is one true fan that you haven't impressed.
