Windshield Wipers

okay, so in my fourth gen, when you turn the wipers on, they raise about three inches, and then they go about their work. They dont go below the 3 inch raised mark while they are on, delay or hi/low. then when you turn the off, the go to rest at the 3 inch mark, then slide down basically out of sight. i REALLY like this. its all about little details for me.

i know the tens have the new style that uses wind to hold it down against the windshield when they are on...but, do they do the whole slide thing outta sight thing? and, where are the washer sprayers at?

the washer nozzles are on the hood on the corners of the "hump", "cowl", "power bulge", whatever ya wanna call it. But they are out of the way and unnoticable. Not sure how the wipers work though but I do like the way they work on the 4th gen.

i thought it would be on all GM cars when it was standard on a 2000, 1500 work truck...
but, the CTS has little black things on the hood :(
most disappointing thing about the CTS

Look at some of the pics with the hood open and look on the hood itself and you can see the hoses going to them. They are pretty well hidden though. Now if we could only get GM to pay attention to detail like this with other small, minor things like... I dunno, wheel weights on brake calipers and rubbing battery wires....

Oh, you didnt get the e-mail???? If you pre-ordered your not getting your car. The money you put down was bail out money and it was just a survey to see if anybody would order one. And paint is expensive! The only reason the price of the Camaro is so low is cause they saved all that money by NOT painting the 4"x5" antenna! Well, that and they switched to GEICO...

dang, chrysler should have done this..they would have people working on their chapter 11 if they had!
yeah, i understand not painting it, i also understand the lack of any kind of badge on the passenger side dash. it kept the cost down, and after all, these are high performance cars, its important for the passenger to keep their eyes on the road!

Is it possible to activate your onstar early so you know where your car is?

Yes, just find a blue button on something in your house and wait for the onstar voice. They will get ya set up! If you cant find a blue button in your house just use a random persons car. Open the door, push the onstar button and just explain to them that the person that owns the car "allowed(by leaving the door unlocked)" you to get into the car. They will be glad to help you get set up.

You didn't get the painted antennae option?!?!?!?!

It comes standard with the black exterior. Might want to consider changing your order real soon.

There has been a discussion on this earlier. The spray jets are below the hood bulge attached to the hood, hidden from view, and the wipers lay at the bottom of the glass.

I'm glad they are under the hood. I've alway had problems with the wiper mounted sprayers freezing up. Either they froze up or ice built up on the wipers themselved and blocked them off. Either way I just never cared for the design myself. With luck my Camaro will never see the salt of winter anyway.
