Guess I'm not a real fan. That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard of.

Not what I said.....What I was saying is if one really likes the C-5 model and '14s is all you can get new (wanting new).. they will buy the '14 tails and all and not cross to stang or chal.........you guys need to lighten up on this mid model change...

Just glad I have my 2011 instead of this refresh! Read somewhere in this post it reminded them of a honda prelude, I would say integra. IF by chance that I won this car as a prize or something along those lines I wouldn't think twice about selling it. Thumbs down Chevrolet!

A new front and rear end are the cheapest means of refreshing the look of the Camaro, but I don't understand the thought process behind some of these choices. Even if a person is a fan of chrome, the choice of a single small strip of chrome on the front fascia just doesn't flow and seems tacked on. Either add more chrome or get rid of it entirely.

The V6 Camaro are a popular choice with the general public so you'd think they would put more thought into its unique look over the SS - why make the lower grille so flat that it no longer flows with the body and looks like it has been in an accident?

The rear end just has so much wrong with it, the license plate area and tail lights being the worst offenders. The rear just doesn't fit the design of the rest of the car/the body lines. It is smart to redesign the rear with LED tail lights since that is a given in today's 30k+ cars, but I'll never understand their Honda Prelude choice. If the 69 Camaro was an inspiration, make it look more like that but with LEDs...

I don't understand the trend of putting the name of the car inside the headlight.

"Oh, I'm glad the headlights are telling me what kind of car I'm looking at because I couldn't tell from the overall shape anyway..."

This is the grill I'm interested in changing out for instead of the RS/SS 1LE version.

Yeah, I've been rethinking on wether or not to just grab a '14 1LE and just wait to see what the 6th gen brings to the table after driving a turbo ATS a few days ago. I really like the handling in the ATS but I love the Camaro, next gen will really be a blast to drive in my opinion with the LT1.
