i thought the door panels were going to be plastic . what gives?

I agree..... This is the only fail on the interior. If we could only get the same tach / speedo gages as the " BLACK" Camaro, now that would be sweet !!!

Sadly this is the only part of the camaro that hasn't grown on me, I though it was ugly then, and I still think it is ugly now.

Somebody will make aftermarket gauges, kinda like those. Those are pretty normal. I want the same gauge cluster in the vette, thats a damn good OCD cluster right there I tell ya.

I don't see a problem with it, oh wait, I'm probably getting a black camaro so it won't matter to me any ways.

This is the Canadian car with the Metric Guages, maybe the US version will be different...

not to be too negative but... this is the dumbest thing I've ever heard.

No one on here wants an Accord. I'm pretty sure no one will make a buying decision based off paint on the fin either. We just want it painted and to not stick out so much. Anything you would like different on your Camaro?

BTW, the CTS has basically the same fin and it is painted. why?

And what makes you so sure about this date?? I don't believe a date has been set at this time. More likely to be after the IDL on 9 Jan.

If you are going to state something as a fact, back it up with proof.

The " look" of the U.S., and Canadian guages are the same..... and what's up with the different guages for the two countries, why not have a universal guage that goes up to lets say 200 ??

Hell, I'd pay $159.99 more to have this thing painted. To me, it's just hideous looking in black.

I want to clarify though, this is one of FEW complaints I have about the car but it drives me nuts!
Then just order a black camaro....then the shark fin will blend right in....geez....

From the picture, it almost looks like WHITE? There is supposed to be a WHITE door panel option... so could this possibly be a 6th colour choice for the interior???

Are you serious? I hope you know there is difference between metric and english systems 200km/h would only be about 130mp/h and 200mp/h would be 320+km/h!

I think they carried the "retro" look a little too far. This is supposed to be a 21st Century Sports Car. Oh well, my son likes it.
