I was only referring to the front bumper cover's shape. The chrome is only with the RS option.

Thanks for the pics. The 1LE looks good and of course the ZL1 still looks good. Actually IMO the new rear diffuser looks more at home on the ZL1 with the way the grey side panels flow into it

I'm sure the production model will have a unique splitter. You ordered a '14? May god be with you.

Man when you put them side-by-side like that it really shows how superior the sculpted design of the current car is compared to this "refresh". The hood bulge is too wide on the new one and it makes the car look narrower as a result. When you look at the yellow 1LE the front looks wide and muscular.

The back? There's just no comparison; sorry Chevy design team.

The only thing better are the Recaros; those are seriously nice!

I think it will take getting used to. You redesign both ends of the Camaro and don't touch anything in between, put a flattened back on it and you're left with something that looks out of place to a good number of people. The 2010-13 back treatment looks like the updated version to me. The flat look combined with flat tail lights are reminiscent of a late 90's car from japan, which I won't mention the name of here. Front looks great, exclude the chrome strip though. Not a total fail by any means.

i was thinking the exact same thing. curious if the lowered front fascia alters it enough so it wont fit. i plan on getting more than one hood for my beast, if it ever gets here :(

You would spend money on that when you can buy a ZL1 style Insert from ACS ? To each their own I guess.

I hate the whole new design, front, rear and the hood vent. So glad I have a 2013

side by side like that... I think it makes the current model look a bit dated.

go for the '14. I like it both front and back. prefer the non-RS over RS model though

^^^ This. The side-by-side pics--including the ones Tran posted with the ZL1 and 1LE in the same shot--just totally confirm my dislike of the refresh cosmetics. It's not horrible, it's just not :::: :::WANT::: like the current styling is for me.

The "new" rear does not flow right with the "old" front on the zl1. Looks really awkward.

Im glad I got a 2011 ss cuz the only desirable one I see is the ZL1 and I cant afford that. I think this is a step back. Better off sticking with what they had.

The 'modern' taillights work on the upcoming Corvette.

They do not work on the current Camaro.

They look like they have been stuck on.
