What kind of date is 10/13? Maybe its too early in the morning for me, but is that not the 10th month of 2013? Obviously I'm mistaken?

I've never liked carbon trim stickers inside cars.. They tend to peel off quite easily and add an extra thickness to whatever they are on that doesn't look natural.. The wing may give the car better aerodynamics, but doesn't look right to me. I guess I'll have to see a car with the ground effects in place to see what it looks like.. Overall I like having the options for the interior colors and it is good to see GM is doing this and having this many accessories at launch or shortly after..

I think though before I make any decision on pre-ordering next month, I need to see more pictures of different interior combination's as we don't have that many.. Also, I need to see more colors in real life that are not computer rendered..

Almost anyone looking into this car segment is going to want one from the beginning and this may cause waiting lists that may spill over in interest for several years. I don't see sales volumes dipping significantly till after 3 years, baring fuel prices changing drastically. Just introduce the model with the most current appeal. Don't use 10 year old technology 2 years from now and try to pass it off as innovation. There's no reason all these future features I.E. heads up, convertible would be available from the beginning. It seams to me the Volt was put on the fast track given the technological challenge witch should have added extra development time and the camaro wasn't. Don't get me wrong I'm not complaining just frustrated to wait almost 4 years and maybe 5 or more for those of us that want a vert. Remember word of the concept started hitting the web around Oct of 2005. and that's after 4 to 6 months of development.
The Concept was first shown in Jan. 2006, "word of the concept started hitting the web around Oct of 2005" means very little in all of this. Car makers in general have always added options after the initial release of a new model, I can't recall one where absolutely everything was available at initial release. That's just the way life is so we will have to deal with it.

Exactly. Ground effects/wing are too rice. I don't want to look like another punk ass ricer. No boomy kiddie's sub either. I like my music balanced, not making the car resonate.

The HUD, some performance parts, floor mats, cold air are about all I want.

Thank God they didn't offer a fart can!

Hey GM:

I don't thing a big sector of your market isn't going to be kiddies living with Mommy! Fast and Furious doesn't belong on American Muscle.

I'm really not super fond of the ground effects. The shorties as a dealer installed accessory are fantastic though.

Since it has been mentioned that GM is still listening/reading. That smaller blade spoiler should be standard on the SS! Just a subtle lil touch to help differentiate it from the rest and IMO greatly improve its appearance.

I agree 100% Let's keep it muscle, not rice.


True dual exhaust would be cool too.

I wouldn't mind seeing an after market hood option like the one off the bumblebee in transformers 2.

Only thing on that board for me is the short throw shifter. Everything else is just, uh, tacky.

Perhaps the cold air intake, but I'll have to wait and see if GM uses K&N for the filter. If not, I'll make my own and use a K&N.

But yes, I am very interested in the short throw.

I'd also like to see some drilled lightweight aluminum pedals. I'm sure if GM doesn't make them some aftermarket will.

As for all the comments about the ground effects kit and some of the accessories being too ricey, I have to agree but is it really a bad thing if these images and parts appeal to a new set of buyers? I mean, if that helps to ultimately improve the cars chance of being profitable and getting better through the years won't all of us (and GM) have benefitted from them being available?

I think it is great and that they are trying to give everybody the chance to really give the car a unique look and make it based on their own taste. I would have to see some more pics on how it looks before I decide whether I want any of this stuff or not, but at least we have a good amount of choices.

out of the 3 lighting kits why cancel red?? IMO its the best option, orange can stay with the challenger and yellow can stay with the mustang, what really bugs me is that they're advertising it and then they're taking it away after some people wanted it, WTF GM?

How do you guys feel about the 21" wheels, they are very nice, but to bad they aren't offered just as a 20" wheel. especially if people want the pedders suspension kit to lower the car a bit, the 21's will probably rub then. What do you guys think? what are some other good after market choices for wheel?

I'm glad to see the Blade Spoiler option, ala 1st gen style. I don't like wings and while the stock spoiler finishes off the rear nicely, it doesn't do much for me.

If the interior lighting doesnt come in blue, im leaving the interior alone. The only thing I would probably use are the stripes. Im still debating between the Rally Stripes or the Hockey. What do you all think ?
