I'm over 40 and I don't remember when teenagers bought new Camaros. At least not typical teenagers. I bought a used one when I graduated from college (still have it).

Recaros were available on the 5th gen, at least the 1LE and I think the ZL1. Are you lamenting that they weren't available on the standard car?

Personally I'd rather see a seat like the stingray...

I know where you are going with this, and I agree, but I do have something to add. Part of what big brakes buy you is headroom so that modulation and keeping the car from invoking ABS is easier. That...

I really would like a machine finish 5-spoke. I hope if/when the 1LE comes out it has an option for other than matte black. So done with that look.

I'm thinking either of the two blues or the metallic black (forgot the name). I've had too many white or metallic red cars. Need to expand my palette.

Are you really stuck on having R-comps? The new 140 or 200 treadwear ultra high performance tires are pretty damn good. The Bridgestone RE-71R is great. The 20" size is a challenge, but like others...

It might not even be a problem with the caliper, maybe the pad material that was chosen is leading to squeal. Some pads are just noisy.
