Ordered today...pretty disappointed

So, I ordered today and I am pretty disappointed.

First off..I wanted a 2SS orange with the high wing spoiler.
The spoiler didn't appear on there unless it was a V6.
So...no spoiler on the V8?
Also, I hear it might not be available in orange at all.

Also...about the orange...
I thought it would be the same as the corvette orange, but apparently that is "atomic orange", not "inferno orange". The swatch that they had for inferno orange on some truck looked more red than it did orange.

I hope the orange winds up looking like the corvette's....otherwise I may have to change my order to black.

If the orange truck you saw was a Colorado, that's the color you ordered for your Camaro. It's not going to look like the Corvette.

The spoiler is standard, and the orange you ordered is Inferno Orange. It looks like the Colorado. You may want to switch to Black based on your own preferences.

A spoiler is standard on the SS, but the OP wants the dealer option HIGH WING spoiler. Would have to remove the standard SS spoiler and the mounting holes are not the same, which is why the program didn't want to let him spec the high wing for his SS.

The high wing spoiler is a dealer option, this is the first i've heard anything about mounting holes being different. Doesn't make sense to me that GM would not consider that and use typical holes for both spoilers.

I looked back and found some of Hylton's posts about this:

"Just noticed that quite a few folks are ordering the lower ground effects and wing spoiler for their cars. Problem is that unless you buy a non RS or SS car, your car will require expensive body work on the trunk lid because the Wing spoiler holes are different than the Duck or SS spoiler holes (which your car will come with)."

"According to the Workbook, the high wing spoiler is a dealer installed item. If this is the case, what does the dealer do when someone has ordered it for an SS or RS? The car will come from the factory with the SS spoiler and the dealer will have to fill the SS spoiler holes before making the new holes for the Wing spoiler."

As of now there is no factory RPO for spoiler delete, which would be needed to get an LS or LT trunklid (without spoiler) on an RS or SS Camaro.

About the spoiler...as others have noted, I want the high wing spoiler.

As for the orange...now I have to go out and look for an orange Colorado and see if it will do...otherwise I will probably go black.

Ultimately, what I was looking for was an orange camaro with flat black stripes (aftermarket so that they go down the bumpers and on the roof) and black rims (also aftermarket because $4k or $5k is a little F#*$ing stupid).

I like the 2 tone interior with the orange on the two front seats, but that whole orange bench in the back seems kinda cheesy. I ordered it but may change it to black.

Too many decisions to make with too many unknowns especially with pricing.

Chevy is just taking this information we're giving them by ordering it early so they can determine the best way to suck us dry. Enough people want a particular option and it will be more than the "leaked" price.

Yeah, the orange is not the same as Hugger Orange that the convertible concept with the painted black stripes is.. They are probably going to have Hugger Orange available for the convertible though next year if you could wait...

EXACTLY...thats what I've been saying all along. The Inferno Orange doesn't look like orange or the concept convertible orange. That Solstice picture is the first picture I've seen that looks like it does in person. You can't even tell its metallic until you are standing right next to it in the sun.

True...also, computer monitors can be deceiving unless you're into photography and have had your monitor calibrated.
I do have to say though, I pulled it up on my TV (which was ISF calibrated) and after looking at it at the dealership I'd have to say the first one looks more like it. It is definitely more red than I'd like but I might be able to live with it. The red, black, and blue sports cars have been done to death. I'm tired of seeing the silver camaro (also my room-mate has a silver charger). I think with some aftermarket black stripes all the way down it'll look bad ass.

black or grey stripes will look awesome on IOM

By the way. The guy that greeted me at the pontiac was so quick to come up and introduce himself, then he couldn't get away fast enough once I said I already ordered the camaro.

Then he came back (after talking to his manager probably) and tried some lame line like "you can get 2 solstices for the price of the camaro".

I'm sorry, but no self respecting guy under the age of 60 would ever drive one.

Did you tell him that you'd rather have all 4 seats in the same car?

I think flat black will look good once you clear coat over it. All they have shown so far is grey...no black.

I would. Nearly got one instead of the Cobalt.

From what I've heard all the stripe colors are gloss.
