Mirrors are very Euro. Hope the tailights are too.

Did anyone notice the headlamp washers? That's also a requirement in Europe - AND the headlights have to be self-leveling (something I know the Camaro has not got in US form).

Can I also point out a few things:

1. I've spent time with Chevy and some UK tuners - the original rear lights break all sorts of laws in the UK. They can't even be modified well to fit UK regs (not to manufacturer standards) so they HAD to change. Black them out and they'll look almost stock. Big deal. (Ie, you'll get used to it!)
2. We've mentioned the mirrors and turn signals - no way around it here. That's the law. But again, once you own the car - CHANGE them. How hard can it be to get some stock mirror housings? Really?
3. Tow hooks. Law. But why wouldn't you have them?!

Okay, so it's not quite a pretty but it's really all cosmetic and if you care enough to own the car, you can make it your own. I still want one and I'd really like the Z28 (which we probably won't get) so quit yer moaning and be thankful the Camaro even exists today!

(ALL said with a smile, folks)

Oh, and moving the reverse lamps.. come on! Remember how bad the up-roar was about that? Surely that new bumper/fender (whatever you call it) skin is an improvement?! :P

What is the talk about a new 500HP LSA engine? Nurburgring video was cool.

those mirrors and tail lights are hideous. Makes me love and appreciate my 2010 which imo was designed perfectly.

The tail lights, when on, look like a cheap pair of "hollywood"/rhinestone sunglasses.

The changes look horrid in my opinion, but that's ok it will make my 2010 version of the camaro more popular/desirable.

Why? Nobody in the states who isn't interested in the car world will even know these changes exist.

Seriously people, .
