Sweeeeeet, man you won't be disappointed with the options. Wouldn't change a thing about it. I thought about plasty dipping the chrome strip, but its the last thing I notice when I look at it. I still might do it after I see how it looks when other members do it.

I have no filter when I drink my apologies. Was uncalled for at the time just getting you back for your first comment but still it was out of bounds or below the belt hope you can get what you want.

FIRST 2014 CAMAROS JUST ARRIVED!!!

So I drove to my dealer today to take a look at the new 14's. They had both an RS and non RS.

I will say they do look a bit better in person, but still not for me and I would not consider buying one. I feel the styling of the 10-13's just looks better overall, especially in the rear. Had the 14's been the original model I may have considered it, although not even sure of that.

Saw this one in Frisco last week. Looks like a rental from all the barcode tags it had on it.

That's a whole lot of busy on that hood. I think I would get a V6 hood if I wanted stripes.

Was that MSRP or were they charging over sticker? I see that IOM ZL1 vert is still sitting out front.

I was browsing on here the other day and was reading a few different topics about the hatred for the new tail lights...While I prefer the non RS tailights I got thinking....Why not model them after the later second gen and 3rd gen tail lights.

I took the picture above and did a quick shop in Paint.net.

hope some of you like this


I am by no means a chop expert as you can tell lol but I think it gets my idea across.

The photoshop looks good, but it looks like a new car with outdated tail lights. I think they did good with the tail lights as is.

Nice job on the photoshop, but that style just makes it look to busy and it doesn't seem to blend in with the style of the rear. Try taking out the middle horizontal line and evening up the distance between the vertical lines on the tail lamps, except for the back up lights - leave as is on the size.

There is so much potential to easily upgrade what is already a just fine rear end on the 2014. BTW, with the admittedly too tall diffuser, it should look the worst on a white car, So how come Summit White looks the best? Hint.... The license plate "bucket" is where the immediate attention should go IMHO.

The tail lights actually aren't as bad in person, still not my favorite. But I can see probably 90% of owners doing something with that chrome strip on the front end...Idk what they were thinking when they added that lol

I guess the real problem is that they made the 2010 model killer and there really wasn't much they could do to improve it.

As someone pointed out earlier in this thread, it seems like every change they've made since then has been to make it less muscular. What a shame...I think if I were in a market for a new car I'd definitely be leaning away from the 2014 Camaro's.

Sorry just don't see it the backup lights are smaller on the new Camaro and they are in the middle of the taillight not the bottom and don't wrap around the side. The new Camaro taillights have two separate red lights as seen above when lit, don't see a match.

They should of taken note from Porsche. A classic look doesn't need a refresh. They hit a grand slam with the design 2009 with an instant classic look. They went from the best looking pony car to number 3 from this. Hopefully they bring the Best of the 14 (front end -chrome thing) and the best of the 10-13 (everything else) for the 6th gen and lighten this heavy thing up
