I was just poking fun at how ridiculous some of this nitpicking can be.

My sarcasm detector's no longer under warranty. Can't get it fixed until I save up some cash. :(

As long as its not that typical "since the 1970's" flasher unit.

"TICK TOCK.......... TICK TOCK........... TICK TOCK"

Actually wasn't that noticed in the CNBC documentary? There was a reporter doing a ride along talking about the car, and they go to make a turn, and he hears it and says something like, that's not going to be the sound the blinker makes is it? The response was something like, not anymore.

i remember that documentary. the response made me chuckle, but only for a moment.

the '07 mustangs have this ping type of sound rather than the commonly heard tick. i kinda liked that feature. it's a bit more relaxing than the ticking. one of two features i liked about the mustang.

I would never, ever use this. Many times when I go to change lanes it takes me more than three blinks to look over my shoulder, start moving, and complete the lane change smoothly. Maybe not when its an empty road, but definitely during traffic. When I turn my blinker on to change lanes, my pointer and middle fingers stay on the turn signal lever until after I am fully merged into the other lane. THEN I turn the signal off.

Its just one of those things that's a waste of money in my mind.

i take the view that if i am in front of you and then later that i am not in front of you that you will probably figure out that i changed lanes, and that if your driving and no one is in front of you but then later i am in front of you that you will probably figure out i merged in front of you. mainly people in my area are jerks and as soon as you turn the blinker on they will speed up to block you. So i like the three blinks. if they hit me i can show that i did use my signals, but it doesnt give them time to react and take my window away.

Even our lowly economied 2008 GMC Work Trucks have the 3 blink feature and I like it. I will bet money that the new Camaro will have this feature. Any takers?

I can confirm that the 2010 Camaro does have this feature. Slight tap on the lever, 3 flashes of the turn signal
