Now you're talking about having a predefined folder which stores the startup and shutdown screens, access controls around those folders so it doesn't open the infotainment system up to an attack, excessive testing to make sure a user-defined startup or shutdown screen doesn't cause the system to crash, etc. As an example, I heard through an IT buddy that he was testing an infotainment system that let you put a name into some sort of input. If you used too many characters not only did it crash the infotainment system but it permently corrupted the hardware to the point that the system was bricked.
As someone who designs interfaces constantly I have to say whoever programmed that was either stupid or incompetent.
I'm pretty sure if I parsed the files I could make something on my own to set a custom background screen.
I have a '12 so I can't experiment...

300 lbs is a lot. 3,900 lbs is a shit ton.

Lose weight all around. If you want creature comforts, go Cadillac.

The content in what I said the 250-300lbs was originally used was that it was not a lot TO LOSE when the car weighs this much. I said 250-300lbs reduction was attainable and someone said that was a "sh*t ton" of weight. I disagreed

I concur. While I understand that the car is 97% perfect, I feel it's important to not rest on your laurels and continue to improve the car. I also have made a few recomendations of what I would like to see done to the next gen Camaro.

How about buttons that are custom cast from a mold of my fingertips. It's all about feel. GM should be able to do this while adding no extra cost.

GM could offer custom car washes by CEO Dan Akerson using only his tounge, clay bar and a squirt bottle of detailer. Those extra little touches are important to me.

I'd like a cooled steering wheel. C'mon, childrens toys have this and no one should have to grab a hot steering wheel in this age of modern technology.

I would also assert that if GM expects me to spend 30K on a performance vehicle they should grant me a waiver, allowing me to exceed the speed limit whenever I feel the need to do so.... tell you what, either that or personal "hot lanes" just for Camaro owners. GM had their biggest profit year ever recently, there's no reason they can't do this, esp. since tax payer assistance kept them from going into bankruptcy.

It's great that 2014 brings a color DIC screen but I'd like to see a color Hi-Def, LED DIC & Head Up screen with user adjustable day-night-eclipse mode, (both lunar and solar).

Give the convertible owners a sunroof option. It's 2013, why isn't this even an option?

A W12 Engine option ala Bugatti.

AWD, standard.

Better incentives and APR's. There is no real reason for not putting 5K on the hood, GM is just being cheap. Also, 0% is available on Hondas, so there's no reason Chevy can't offer that, regardless of your credit.

Lastly, the Camaro is just too expensive. GM should be able to do all of this for under 16K OTD. How are 17 year old kids w/ no credit and no driving experience going to be able to afford the car otherwise? Let's get this done!

Club Racing should be a major focus for the car. I mean road course racing. The 1LE should be further expanded and called "Club Racing" with is own badging, etc. This is a nice product niche for the car and fits the performance targets.

200-300lbs weight reduction can also be attained by eatting healthy and a gym routine. Look in the mirror first, especially for those ppl whom want their car to lose weight start with yourself first.

...without delving too far into responses....250-300 pounds in weight reduction is alot as far as times go around any competitive course. On the drag strip thats equates to .250 to .300 seconds in elapsed time.

Call me crazy I would like it to be the weight of my 67 RS/SS with the same rear seat room. A 350HP turbo V6 that gets 30MPG would be great as long as they made a strong bottom end that could be modded up to maybe 500 without changing out the bottom end.

Just a tip to know. If you put the rear wheel with tire on a scale and it reads over 70Lbs you're doing it wrong!

I'm happy with the cars we have but they might wanna invest in better exterior paint quality and less plastic inside.

ALL OF THE ABOVE ARE GREAT IDEAS, THE hURST SHORT THROW SHIFTER IS AWESOME AND SHOULD BE STANDARD EQUIPMENT. CAR HANDLES BAD ON CURVES, SUSPENSION NEEDS TO BE BEEFED UP AND A LOWER CENTER OF GRAVITY SO YOU ARE NOT THROWN TO ONE SIDE WHILE EXITING THE FREEWAY AT ANYTHING OVER 30MPH. GAUGES LEAVE A LOT TO BE DESIRED, NAVAGATION SYSTEM IS POORLY DESIGNED AND TAKES A ROCKET SCIENTIST TO OPERATE. ENGINE COMPARTMENT LOOKS LIKE A TINKER TOY OR MADE FROM LEGOS, REALLY CHEAP, CHINSY LOOKING. A MUSCLE CAR THAT HAS AN ENGINE THAT LOOKS LIKE A TWINKIE.

7 speed manual? Why do we want to shift more I find 6th gear useless most of the time now. Not necessary IMO

I would trade my 2010 for this. If not this, I'm keeping my 2010, it's perfect the way I have made it.

Lots of vehicles seem to have many things that should be able to be changed that would require only a small change software wise.
For example my cobalt ss had a digital lcd gauge with a few different screens. Like screen 1 displays certain parameters screen 2 displays others but there was no way to have a custom screen with exactly the parameters you wanted.
I think the main reason is because they feel there is no need or competition that would push them to have this feature the other is it may over complicate things , and somebody may make an unintended change they do not know how to reverse , causing extra warranty visits , complaints , and all that extra spending/bad publicity

The new camaro needs to lose some weight like 300lbs for v8spec. The interior has to use less plastic, more aluminum. It has to have better sight lines for the front especially.

Interior less plastic! Glove box light would be nice....More options would be nice like carbon fiber and different leather colors. More technology like a screen for a spedo just like the vette... Launch control in the v6 and also a V6 performance package would attract younger buyers. As far as styling. Shorter more aggressive front and rears....vented fenders-THAT WORK------LED lighting in the WHOLE CAR. Smaller steering wheel to make the car feel smaller......rev match would be a nice option for manual guys. Different driving modes that actually change the way the car drives would make a impact on the track and daily driving....To help the people that say there are blind spots, well what about blind spot protection.....I know all of these things will make the car cost more but it will translate into a better Camaro.

Give me more compartment space.... The center console doesn't cut it. Don't like leaving any items left in plain view, asking for someone to break into your car, so the area beneath mylink is useless. Cup holders could be deeper.

Otherwise, this car is awesome.

The 2014 Stingray (wet I believe) weighs 3444.....

The 6th gen Camaro needs to weigh 3500-3650 dry. Anything less is unreasonable.

Well for the Z/28 I was hoping that they would actually make it look more unique( look) than slapping wheels and tires on it. They should ve changed the front end and make it uniquely z28 just like the zL1 has a look that is uniquely ZL1, I know it's a track car ready but using the same ss bumper and not including the fog lights while retaining the actual housing is stupid.
