Still not sure how I feel about these changes, I like it and kind of also dislike it. Soo curious how 6th gen will look.

Who doesn't know by now? Smh. Anywho. It's already been stated the ZL1 refresh will keep the front end from the 2012-2013 models due to the amount of time spent in the wind tunnel to tune the front of the car. The ZL1 refresh will receive the LED tail lamps found on the 2014 SS/RS. There will be a change in the rear diffuser to accommodate the rear fascia. So in simple terms I know what changes will be made.

I like it, but jeeze. Make it more costly by adding LEDs, Recaro (which is Italian for money), and add add add add.

It's going to be ridiculously expensive. That's what I'm seeing so far. I'll stick with mine, and wait for the parts to get cheaper when everyone trades in.

Recaro seats will be an option, as the LED tail lights will be standard on the ZL1. As long as everything is an option, it gives us consumers a choice which is great! I'm looking forward to GM introducing some sort of Safety Tech option which in my eyes would include the blind spot mirror and front-end collision sensors. You can never be too safe!

Blind spot mirror? Front end sensors? You are joking right? These cars have too much crap on them as it is. So lets just keep adding more cost and weight to them. If people learned how to drive we wouldn't need all these frills.
FYI if you adjust your mirrors correctly, there are NO blind spots.

Sorry GM, but you just can't win em all.

This time around, I think the RS package actually looks worse than the non-RS models. Lets start with the front. Its alright or even good from certain angles. The problem is the extended length of the headlamps which just looks awkward and makes the Camaro with just the halos on look "wide eyed" and goofy. I will give it some credit though, when the front parking lights are on it helps to break that up, but I still think the grille should have been extended and overlapped the lamps.

Moving to the rear. Its even worse than the front. The big black diaper on the bottom, the big square hole for a plate, no indention in the truck giving any definition, and tail lamps with a boring shape. Its just not good. I hope to see something more imaginative here with the 6th gen, which should be a big change, even if it does end up keeping similar styling cues.

Camaro I still love you, but this is one true fan that you haven't impressed.

Does it look like i'm joking? No. They are called options for a reason. If you want to save weight and cost, then simply don't add that option on your Camaro. The blind spot mirros and front end collision are already on most vehicles out there as an option, so don't be suprised if GM follows suit. I guess you can argue the same thing about a Sunroof being an option too right? lol.

The problem is though that options are only partially paid for in the specific option price the rest goes into the base price of all the trim levels where it is available.

Not sure, but the area around the halos seems the "same" as before...the grille looks smaller just because of the "bump-up"???...dunno...Overall I like the front, I think what I heard regarding the Z/28 is that the grille, and "lower-grille" are that way to help the heat extractor do it's job...Thinking V-6 front may not look the same, as it will not have the heat-extractor...

Gotta say I like the old tail-lights better for now...new ones are ok...I'm sure there will be plenty of aftermarket tail-lights that can change those out if desired...

Options? Oh, my God...thought I'd never see the day again...It's a great trend, let's don't throw it away....!

My next car may have to be a mustang if this is the direction gm is headed. I purchaded a camaro because they created a master piece with the 2010-2013. Oh and the 1st gen. Was never a fan of any other camaros. Just never liked the looks. Mostly just disappointed in the 2014. Sorry those are just my feelings towards the car. However I do like the race seats, so I guess its not all bad.

The more I see of the 2014, the more I like it. I prefer the new front end and I even appreciate the hood vent. I don't care one way or the other about the back end.
