Im glad those rumors about the Dumbo side mirrors were only rumors :-)
If they were to put on those dumbo side mirrors in the US, I'd never want to upgrade. Those looked so horrible on this car it wasn't even laughable. It was just horrible.

Go to any Chevy dealer and look at the Impala's and you will see the Black Granite ... It's kinda like the IBM but in black with heavy silver and gray flakes ...

I like this, their adding some really cool stuff but nothing that will make us current owners upset that we didn't wait or something. Like V6 owners would be so angry if they added a turbo or V8 guys if they added new gearing options or a more powerful factory tune etc.

I hope they make some of this stuff available as accessories too, I'd be interested in the 2lt looks packages.

As said in the first post, the changes listed do not reflect any potential styling changes we may eventually see on the 2012 Camaro.

Amen to that - need a med blue or bring Aqua Blue back!

Always the case that something's released AFTER you buy.

I really wanted a black granite color but not flat black which is why I got cyber gray.

Ah well. I'm sure this is the first of a few new things to be announced I'll wish I had.

So is the color a metallic black or a dark gray metallic? When I hear the word carbon, I think dark gray, not black.

What are the odds that they will get rid of the rear sensors if they use a rear camera instead?
So the LS will be dropped? If not then it's ok for LS drivers to back up into things?

The LS is the base model. I'm sure a backup camera will not be an option, just as the C&C package, sunroof, and the RS package are not available on the LS.

No, I just think it's a ploy to get people to upgrade to 1LT. They did the same thing with the sunroof option and RS package. They did a similar thing with the 1SS and did not allow you to add the C&C package, but this is actually changing later for the 2011 MY. It never made sense that you could get C&C with the 1LT but not the 1SS. It was merely a ploy to get people to upgrade to the 2SS. It worked on me! I don't regret having leather though, but I probably would not have missed it if I didn't have it.

why are you trying to scare people about the dumbo mirrors? lol. Those things looked terrible. IF GM puts those on ALL Camaros then I know that the Camaro is only going to go downhill in future revisions. If it is some safety requirement for a certain country, then that makes sense, but those mirrors do not belong on a Camaro.
