Get over it.

Well nothing much for change, but then again I wasn't expecting there to be.. However at least I can say I have a V6 putting out 312hp!

It seams 312hp will attract some aditional buyers but if this is just a tune that has been discoverd or whatever im sure someone will be able to find that sweet tune and beable to transfer that to to 10' camaro. I dont think 8 hp is really going to matter heck there are some of us that have started modding our camaros right after we purchased them. Simple mods will get you and additional 8HP and probably save you some money as well.

The Corvette (with Hud) has a very specific market. Most car enthusiasts that can spend that much moeny for a car are likely more adept to handle such a distracting mod and drive fine. The general public, which is who the Camaro prices attract, will be easily distracted and pay too much attention to the HUD info, as compared to the road.

Pilot's of aircraft that use HUD say there is a 'getting used to' period where they have to train themselves to look through the HUD and use the info, but at the same time, see surrounding environment. The typical driver on the road today can barely coordinate carrying a conversation using a hands free on a cellphone safely behind the wheel, now they'll have HUD to work with ???

Keep the HUD for the 2SS ONLY. That caliber buyer will be like the a Corvette buyer and more a car enthusiast that, majority anyway, can handle such a mod.
That makes absolutely no sense whatsoever...

From the episode, Homer says "I want the world to think it's gonna end when I gun the motor". I love it.

As far as 2011 SYNERGY GREEN:

The COLOR will be available - the current "package" as on the 1LT is NOT expected to continue (with Green stitching and interior panels.) (last I heard)

I believe that too. I don't think they tweaked anything on the engine to get an extra 8 hp. But even if they did, 8 hp isn't enough to make any difference. It wouldn't feel any different when you hit the accelerator.

I didn't expect it, but I was hoping for a new grille and more colors.
