I don't think i'll ever warm up to the chrome strip but i'm no longer in panic mode aka Michael and Kelly about the rear.

One reason is probably to accomodate wider license plates outside the US. But the design is boxy and hideous unfortunately. No change was needed there at all.

And not as tall. So, the license plate area will look oversized and hideous both inside the US and outside !

Really - this was an area they should have left alone. The original was perfect.

I can only hope the aftermarket comes up with something that fills in the entire license plate space, making it look more finished.

kind of wished if they were going to put the chrome strip above the grille they should have put more trim somewhere else too. front end looks like they were going for more aerodynamic...
don't really think the car looks better, but wouldn't stop me buying one either. man i am kind of liking the V6 without the spoiler look. real clean .

The grey Camaro on the road and the grey Camaro on the hauler are two different Camaros.

The one on the road is a V6 (hence no hood cutout and the different fog lights) and the one on the hauler is an SS (hence the different shaped fog lights).

The Crystal Red is a V6 non-RS.

I thought that the refresh was starting to grow on me a bit, especially after seeing the night time photos another member posted recently. However, looking at these photos I am thinking that I need to go to the bank and then contact Becky about finding me a blue 1LT with the RS package and white hockey pucks. Another part of me wants to wait and see what the refresh looks like in person and possibly wait to see what '15 has to offer.

'15 will not change much as it's the last year of this gen.

Great photography... really. I like the new profile, I'm ok with the front, I'm not even in like with the rear view. I can learn to be ok with the tail lights but as mentioned before, that big awkward rectangle is just on the wrong car.

v6 rs/non-rs models..finally. Other than the dual tail pipes, looks are, especially that boomerang-looking excuse for a spoiler.

..put some 24" rims on them(as a distraction)
I don't want to hate it, but I just don't like it.
