They should have retired the color and replaced it with another limited edition color.

Are you worried that there will be more synergy green Camaro's than aqua blue metallic Camaro's?

I strongly disagree.

America was built on our word as a promise un-compromised. What we said, we did, simple and true. If you believe the synergy edition was a limited edition based on the synergy paint then gm has proven its willingness to renege on its word. What other things have they said that we should simply consider marketing fodder that will sale cars today with no worry about tomorrow??

On the other hand if you believe the synergy edition was just some green color thread - I suppose you are wondering what all the typing is about...

I thought the whole basis of this arguement was that they were offering the SGM color on cars for 2011? Buying a $28,000 car for collector value, or whatever you think makes your car more special than the 150,000 other gen 5's made, is ridiculous. I mean seriously, that's like buying a Ford Escape and thinking it's going to be a collector item...... if that is your concern, then go get a GT500KR, or a ZR-1 or something and put it away for 50 years with 30 miles on the clock and we will see if your investment turns out.

You are right, I just don't get it......

And you don't have to thank GM, YOU paid that much money for a 1lt car. You got a lot of other nice options on it as well.




For the second time here guys, just drive and enjoy your cars for what they are.

You dont get the green ambient lighting on the 2011. Or the stiching on the interior.

Also the TF edition parts and stripes can be ordered from a dealer and slapped on any car. It doesn't even have to be yellow.

All it was dealers probably cried to GM they wanted a SS in synergy green to sell by request. So in a nut shell they released it. Money talks!

Why not? I paid for orange thread. And they never said Limited. Special yes. Limited no. And I still think the Synergy is pretty special.

Only the items in bold were not available to order on any other non-special car.. So which one(s) did you pay the extra money for? I paid it for the paint.

I paid 2k for everything in the package. The color, the stitching, the panels were part of that package. As were the wheels, the backup sensors, C&C, spoiler, stripes, remote start. IT WAS A PACKAGE that included a color. I would not have paid 2k for the color and the stitching alone.

Just curious, but do you have to pay extra for the paint in the 2011 SGM?
