Overall these new options look pretty cool. Dissappointed in the lack of a new blue. Carbon Flash Metallic looks awesome, not sure if I'll like it more than black though. I really hope one of the new rim designs is the LS7 style. I also hope the new anniversary package continues the tradition of a really cool/different paint schemes of the past years. It looks like I might have to take on a couple more jobs now.

The only 2012 option that matters to me is Z28!

That, for me, would be the only reason to sell or trade my 2010 SS.

The Price on the z28 is the only thing thats keeping me from ordering my 2011 for a may delivery. If the Z is $45ish ill hold out for it....but not holding my breath!!

I agree, Ford offers a performance rear axle gear, a 4.11 I think......so GM should offer us a factory high performance gear option other than a top end gear like the 3.23. Can you imagine how these Camaro's will launch and go 1320 with a lower rear ratio?

Not to mention, Dodge isn't afraid to offer Furious Fuschia as well. WE WANT A DECENT FREAKING BLUE GM!
Don't hold back...tell us how you really feel... LOL...point well made, come on GM and open up the color pallette like Dodge has done and is doing again...grandma ain't buyin these cars GM.......bold and brash color will ad to the wow factor and make the chip on the shoulder these Camaro's already carry only that much bigger.

But any way...wheres the Corvette Bronze that looks like a washed out IOM

Go retro...where's the real nice light gold metallic??????

Hmmmm...yes, those bronze and golds you mentioned were nice indeed! Good point...

What are the odds that they will get rid of the rear sensors if they use a rear camera instead?
Not likely. As with the GMC Acadia it is integrated into the rear camera. If they put in a Navy like warning symbols show up on the screen where the possible collision is detected.

As FBODFATHER has said several times, his personal favorite is blue, but historically blue is very low volume compared to the other colors. They kept IBM over ABM because they solid more of the IBM and needed to cut a color.

The LS model is a stripped down model offer the fewest of all options etc... offering rear view camera would be in opposition of that concept.

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.
A ploy? if it was a ploy then why would they even offer a LS model? That does not make any sense at all. The LS model is for people who don't want all that other stuff, they just want the car. It's good for people who want to mod it all themselves too.

I just traded in my plum crazy charger for my very green 2SS about 4 weeks ago. Indiana weather is crazy, we had severall small snow falls that I had to get some all season tires, to feel safe driving, but love this car and about every other day someone is taking pics of my car.

Granite Black Metallic is an awesome color... hope Carbon Flash is just as good...

Here's some closeups of Granite Black Metallic on my Tahoe... this is at night in the garage... out in the sun it's way nicer than plain flat black...

It should do well on the Camaro...

I have my heart set on a CGM Z/28, but this color has definitely peaked my interest.

Any input on how hard it is to keep clean vs CGM? Is it a little bit better than regular black in that regard?

Much, much, much, much better. Has all the great looks of black, nice flake, without the streaks and cracks of traditional black.

EXACTLY... and well worth the extra $195... I've had a lot of comments from people who didn't expect to see the metallic flakes..

I see quite a few of the newer SUV's with rearview cameras on the tail lift... and in my sons crossover, as soon as he shifts into reverse, his navsystem becomes his camera picture. Its a nice feature for backing. I saw the same set up on the Arcadias.
