i agree, the chrome strip is really bad, i like the sleek look of the headlights and grille, and i dont hate the tailights but prefer the old ones.... and as much as i love the ZL1 front, they probably should have updated it as well, its weird having the new rear and "old" front, oh well

we were thinking that some people who live in NY will probably put curb feelers on it as well as a "sim-con" roof and perhaps a gold package.........




Sorry -could not resist! Only kidding. (....I used to live on Long Island...)


I suspect this will be a non-issue in a few months - and, as someone mentioned....it just gives you another thing to change and personalize your Camaro. (...chrome taillamp surrounds come to mind...)

Who said they were plastic? For all we know, they could be real chrome. Who knows, :p

What do you think the "camaro" badges on the fenders and the bowties are made of?

I agree with the not liking chrome from the pictures, but walking around the car, I personally think the whole thing (RS or non) looks amazing. And if you don't like the chrome, spend 10 bucks on a can of plasti-dip and cover that sucker up! It's hard to get everything "perfect" when the crowd to please is so diverse, and not everyone likes the same thing. To think that Chev is doing such a great job now, think about the future. What we said about gen 5.0, they tried to fix with gen 5.1. I am willing to bet the lights will change for gen 6 along with a lack of chrome strip.
