I think he is talking about the back up camera being mandated in 2014 not the colors.

So this what the 2010 owners felt when they heard about the 2011 improvements. Now I'm jealous of future 2012 owners. New colour? Appearance package? Rear view camera? Damn. I want it all. The rear view camera would awesome.

A good thing gets better. Great news.

All of the jetstream blue pictures I've seen seemed a tad too bright of a blue for me, but then again, in person it probably is beautiful.

But for me...this is where it's at. Saw one across from my house a year ago and I thought it was so beautiful I had to take a picture of it...

Unfortunently I don't have that picture, so this one will do for now lol

This color was called "Voodoo" on the Australian VE Commodore ... it looked awesome on the SSV with the blue dash and seat panels and instrumentation that was available for a limited time.

They really need to bring back an ABM-like blue. ABM sales would've gone way up, had it been given a chance...Just when they were starting to hit the streets in 09', GM killed the color in favor of Synergy Green.

So many modern enthusiast cars are available in medium blue, and it just ain't right the Camaro isn't....Not in keeping with the heritage, as in prev Gens, medium/lighter blues were always in offering....Wake up GM, and get us that blue, and SOON!!!

I can tell you one thing about those mirros: most of us would not want them any larger than you guys get them.

When I buy mine first thing I'm going to do, if those truck things are on, is throw them off and screw on smaller ones.

Not to mention, Dodge isn't afraid to offer Furious Fuschia as well. WE WANT A DECENT FREAKING BLUE GM!

F55 - Magnetic Selective Ride Control
F92 - Magnetic Selective Ride Control, Specific Tuning
FE1 - Suspension System Soft Ride
FE2 - Suspension System Ride, Handling
FE3 - Suspension System Sport
FE4 - Suspension System Special Ride and Handling
FE5 - Suspension System Ride, Handling, Performance

Yes no mag and it looks like something you can add to the back year Camaros.

There will always be something better... even if it's another Camaro.

I have a 2010 and the 2011 options don't really matter to me, let alone the 2012's... backup cam is kind of neat but... I know how to back my car up without hitting something...If 2012 has a navigation that actually looks nice, then I'll be pissed.. haha. (please be retro fit, please be retro fit)

The only thing that has me itching is the Z/28.

I was looking to trade up to an SS if they came out with a different blue. Guess I'll have to keep waiting.:emoticon7:

Just like the HUD, the camera could be added later. (even the backup sensors if you like them) so I'm not worried about what my 2010 didnt get. Though I have to say, backup camera might actually be a good thing in this car since it seems impossible to tell where the back of the car is.

IF the 2010 becomes worth more, it'll certainly be after 2 or more decades. And it would only be worth more if it has very few miles on it, meaning you never drove it. If you want to let your car sit in a garage, you have fun with that! There will be a select few 2010s that may demand a premium earlier if they are sold correctly though. There were a few with some initial manufacturing oddities that collectors seem to love. For example, there were some cars with the wrong badging installed by the factory. There are also a few with the GM Performance badge under the hood. those are the dumb rarities that collectors seem to love and will pay big bucks for. Who knows, if GM doesn't bring back another good blue, ABM may become more valuable in 20 years just because there are only a couple thousand examples of it. And in 20 years, probably only a few hundred will be left as teenagers would've bought them as first cars a decade or so earlier and crashed most of them

If the next year has NAV, a redesigned console/interior and supercharger on a stock model like the 2ss/rs, I will give mine to the kid and buy a new one.
I'm with you on the cup holders. I usually get a small coffee every morning and it's too close below my arm for comfort with shifting. They could at least lower one of the holders another inch. I haven't even tried a soda cup yet; not willing to let the sticky soda in my car.
