wheels are awful awful awful.... looks like something that should come factory on a miata... major upgrade fail - You'd think with such a free open community like Camaro5 GM would put out a simple poll with some renderings and get a general consensus from the people who actually buy the car.


I really can't even imagine a bunch of designers & engineers in a meeting deciding on the wheel upgrade and more than 50% of them said "yea those look awesome" The car has 5 other wheel options (not counting the different colors/finishes) and this is really what they decided to put on the 2013 SS & RS cars?

I will have to disagree...I think the wheels look awesome, and even better in person

The wheels look awesome in that color. I don't like those wheels in the 'Painted Aluminum' color, but in Midnight Silver, they're amazing.

I agree. The midnight silver version of the wheels looks great.

I'm still really surprised they haven't added push start ignition to these cars. I mean I see stock low end Kia's and Dodges with push start now...

I hate push-to-start. I guess I just feel better knowing that my car needs to be started with a laser-cut key AND a key fob that is programmed to my car, rather than completely relying on a key fob programmed to my car. Plus, with the key, I can at least unlock the door to get in if the fob wasn't working for whatever reason. I dunno, I guess I'm a little oldschool in this regard, and don't want to 'completely' rely on electronics.

Hylton I have to agree. I can also see where Chevy is coming from, as car mfrs have to have something "new" to offer. The initial 2010 retro redesign was a single wholistic take on bringing the '69 etc. forward. Now, with each progressing year, changes modify that to "something else". Whether that further progression is good or bad is to be decided. :( I'm glad I bought a 2011.

I see the progression as an understanding that retro can't last forever. With everyone doing it, the new is wearing off. The next gen will be a larger mix of old and new. This is the slow progression so it isn't such a shock.

I really liked the key I had with my G8, but I like the keylessness of my charger even better. I never take the key out of my pocket, and it still has a physical key inside it that I can use to unlock the door just like you mentioned.

Only the performance oriented models SS, 1LE, ZL1. I don't doubt they will add it to the V6 next year.
