The exhaust was painted black at the auto show. It was stated that it might make production but would likely add cost. They were undecided on it at the time.

No. NPP (dual mode exhaust) is an option and is only standard on the ZL1, not the SS or V6.

It's alright.. I do not like the chrome on the front. I still want to see it in person thou. I do not have any feelings of wanting to trade for one, AT ALL.

If you are thinking of ordering a 14 , hurry and order a 13 while you still can. The return of the Z28 is the only good thing about the 14 camaro.

What do you want to bet that THE BIGGEST mod for any for the " Fugly Fourteens" will be changing the rear bumper to a 2010-2013.

I'm gonna nit pick here. The pointy front bumper casts a shadow on the flat lower front grille. What's that all about? How does that look from the ground looking up? Is there an open space there or what? It does look like its been in an accident there. I don't like the chrome strip either. And the RS headlights look to far apart. Like a pug dog or something. The Non RS lights look better IMO in the new front. I'm actually okay with the taillights because they do remind me of the first gen. But I also don't like the huge plate box. Over all I'm not feeling it. I want to like it but I just don't. Sorry.

Could be...I'm sure aftermarket stuff will be a-plenty....Can't see an advantage, though, to making the car look a year older than it is...I think Chevy might have made a mistake by "listening" and trying to imitate some of the mods they see around here...

Last I heard Camaro sales were "down" on the charts...four years of the same look may have run it's course in their eyes...Do those tail-lights look like some others that are already out there? Even European perhaps? European license plate area? I would say so...and could be a reason they were changed to boost sales to new customers...

The extra space is the license plate are is for the message board for advertising, telling the driver behind you what you think of them, and to kindly remind mustang and challenger owners where their place is.

True but I'm willing to bet they just killed future sales even more.

Maybe...but my guess is for repeat sales to Gen5 customers, the 6thGen is probably more of a concern than selling 14's and 15's to current owners...

The feedback/sales from the 10-13s and the 14-15s may determine what route they take for the 6thGen in styling...

If someone feels the 14s are a deal-breaker, at least the 13s are still to be had for a while...When the 6thGen comes out I think all this debate over the re-fresh differences will be very small potatos...

And this is a die hard Camaro 5th gen site that the majority seems to hate any change done to the car from its 2010 original design...
I seem to recall all the hate comments on the 2012 changes and then the 2013 changes... Why should the 2014 changes be any different? I mean they are rather extensive compared to the changes made in previous years, so I would expect the hate comments to be more extensive also.
Just my observation.
