All my thoughts and additions are old or listed above...

but.. I will reiterate this one..

Lighter, lighter, lighter, lighter......... please... make it lighter...

oh.. and... ditch the 20s for something more useful.. maybe 18s that don't look out of place.

T2-T3 ports should be standard. Make a deal with alpine to offer their nav as a factory upgrade. Same suspension should be on all models. I'm calling for the FE4 suspension across all models. It would be nice to see a bare bones SS made strictly in the name of weight loss and performance.

Lighter is going to be off the table until the 6th generation / Alpha.

I like the comments above about full length sunvisor, factory rear tinted windows... those are things that are easy and cost effective. More improvements to the DIC - theoretically if the DIC is tied into the same electrical system as all the sensors, with the right programming it could display all the items to make it compete with that news a little while back about the Ford Mustang being able to see a ton of diagnostic info in its DIC.

For the love of god, though, do not make the T2-T3 standard as said above... :yuck:

I'm not expecting that this gathering is for any serious changes to the 5th gen.

Why don't we ahve a V6 performance package similar to the "Mayhem" performance package for the V6 Mustang? Their package includes:

• 3.31 rear axle ratio for quicker off-the-line acceleration
• Mustang GT coupe front and rear stabilizer bars
• Mustang GT front struts and rear shocks/springs
• Shelby GT500 rear lower control arm
• Unique 19-inch wheels
• Pirelli performance tires for improved grip
• Mustang GT front and rear brake calipers with Performance Friction pads
• Strut tower brace for increased body rigidity
• Unique electronic stability control calibration with sport mode for performance driving
• Unique badging

In my Camaro V6 performance package, I personally start with:

1. Better brake calipers and disks. The SS Brakes look so much better. They don't need to be as big, but they don't need to look like they are from a Civic either.
2. A 3.55 or 3.73 gear available for our V6? V6 guys like performance too. If our SS brothers can beat GTs, shouldn't we be able to beat a Mustang v6?
3. A 19" wheel/tire combo that provides the grip of the 20" and looks better that the stock 19" wheels.

Thank you for your interest Janet.

You already made my wishes and dreams come true when you decided to build the ZL1.

Thanks!
