Who likes the Mailslot?

Am I the only one that actually likes the mailslot on the SS?

I like it too. I will say though that I am a bigger fan of functional vents.

I like it and I have a V6, it is a nice way to set it apart, though would be better functional.

I was more impressed with it when I thought it was functional. Of course, that notion went away once I started looking to buy one. (Yes, this initial thought was based on a look from a far. I did not actively look into the 5th gen until I was ready to buy one. I did not want to get hooked and buy the car sooner than my plan.)

I like it. It would be cool if it was functional. You could get the acs vent. I'm thinking about it. That and the hex vents would get a lot of air through the engine bay.

Currently getting my Mailslot replaced with a V6 bumper and Acs Composite T5 Splitter. I prefer the smooth look of V6 bumper over the Mailslot.

Mine will be disappearing once the CF hood and ZL1 bumper are installed. I like the ram air look on the hood and don't like it with the mailslot.

It's a terrible design. If Chevy was going to do it they should've made it functional.

Of course I like the mail slot. The lower grill and the bottom lip of the SS front fascia is also a little different. Looks great.

I prefer something more telling that its an SS than a mail slot. Like hood vents, larger scoop and specific rims?

Love the mail slot!!! Wish I had one for my V6 so I can install AAC's RGB Scanner like on my SS.

Anyone who hates the mail slot on their SIM Camaro want to trade front fascias? PM Me.

Im actually taking advantage of a hit and run in a parking lot. I have a crack in the passenger side of the bumper and its was scratched up pretty good. Was able to work out a deal for the v6 bumper, Heritage grill, and Front spiltter through my insurance along with no insurance premium raise. I will take it all day long.
