I think the changes make the car look more modern. I really can't wait to read what everyone thinks when the 6th gen comes out. I hope it looks like a 2nd gen!! Really, I do!!

..yup, modernly boring, so as to blend w/ everything else out there, then people start asking yo, is that a new Honda Prelude?.

The 1LE looks fantastic. I never really liked SIM on the Camaro, but that looks great. I like the front, I like the rear (especially w/ that black spoiler)....I just don't really care for the side profile now - looks like the front dips too much.

I don't listen/take advise from my wife too much, but when I do she's usually right. And when she's right, it's usually bad news for me.

I'm trying to decide if I should go with a 2013 or 14 model, and if I go with a 14, she'll definitely want to drive it. And anytime I drive it, I'm going to think about this post and how she said its "feminine"
As a woman, I disagree with your wife. I would not buy a '14. I used the word neutered when the first pix came out. The edges just looked softened, and the taillights and rear in general look dated to me. IMO, the current models are more aggressive and unique.

ETA: I see you're in Detroit! I bought my car from Becky @ Rodgers & had it shipped out here. She was great to work with and gave us great pricing. We added the GM rockers painted & the GM diffuser: Becky & Maureen let us get pieces of the fx kit, and gave us an unbeatable price on parts & labor. (It was still cheaper to go through Becky & pay shipping than the local dealer we priced out.) Maybe you can call her up, get a can't pass up price for a '13, maybe even one on the lot, and get it ASAP.

I always wondered if the current diffuser caught a lot of air(drag) especially when you remove the big canned exhaust. Maybe GM caught that too...as well as the front. Having said that...2010-2013 vs. 2014 refresh at the track, stock vs. stock. Are we going to see different times?

It's been well received on many websites that are devoted to the competitors (Mustang sites, Challenger sites, etc) so if it means more conquest sales - that's a HUGE plus.
I owned a 99SS and I prefered the 93-97 body style. The LS1 was just too much to pass up though. I don't currently own a 5th gen so I don't really have a dog in the hunt right now, but I prefer the rear end of the 10-13 over the 14. The front I can go either way, it has grown on me enough that I am indiferent over which style front I get. The question (like for my 99SS) is the Z28 enough of an upgrade over the ZL1 that I will choose the design I like less. If I get a 13 ZL1 I will be adding recaros though!

Now I DO like that front end. That's the way they should have came out. Now for the back end....

It's just the SS and Z/28 front end with some blackout.

You will get more understeer if you care about that. But a bigger rear sway will cure.

But that explains why they did what they did. And they decided to save a few $$ by using the ZL1 rear wheels versus a less wide rear wheel.

But I am happy they did it that way. They kept the awesome 1LE package affordable. Hopefully the 2014 is still as reasonable.

The 2014 is growing on me. I really like the 1LE shown here. I do wish they had kept some sort of splitter on the front though. I have a well equiped 2013 already so I dont feel much pressure to run out and get a 14' 1LE but when I see one in person I may change my mind based on price increase, cost of options (recaros in the 1LE).
