And if you can't some GMPP parts that are being mulled over may enlighten you.

I am just curious as to what you guys would like, paint wise, options. What some other cars have that you would like included.

I would love to have NAV, i use it all the time in my truck.
Yup, I use it in my Vette all the time, but my HighSchooler only needs to drive a short distance to school.

Wish list:

1) A more efficient DI V8 for the SS models.
2) Move Onstar and gadgets into a separate package.
3) Move leather wrapped steering wheel and shifter into the RS package.
4) Add optional back-up radar.
5) Add Sunset Orange Metallic and Desert Sand Metallic colors.
6) Make the center console lid so it will stay open (a simple spring mechanism?).

It would be great to have a real NAV system...and not one that required ONSTAR

An internal hard drive to store the NAV and room for some additional tunes would also be nice (since we are dreaming here)

Different Grill options (Chrome, SS in the middle, etc.)

how about a smaller lighter V8 with DOHC and DI...

the technology is available and you could get the same HP/TQ numbers out of a smaller block and get some better mpg's while your at it + the weight distribution would be better thus the car would handle better

-standard HID's
-loose the mail slot on the SS or at least make it functional
-lower grill redesign... too plain IMO
-adjustable suspension/ride option

I ain't skeered of suburbans, but some things must remain a secret for the time being, although i would LOVE to tell you because it would blow your minds.

So post up.
I think a Z-28 that outperforms anything else being put out there, ie. hennessy, lingenfelter, etc. would be great for chevy and the end user. I would definitely wait for this one!

I would like to see the door tension bars a little tighter. Currently the door opens to freely. I would like lumbar support with user control. Long drives are decent, but could be improved. I think they could have had a more aggressive sound at idle. I took off the exhaust cans from axle back and it sounds great. The sunroof should go into the roof. A smaller mirror for better visibility. Do not get me wrong, I have no issue with it personally, but it took me a week to get used to it. The wife would like a better quality glove box (Not sure why, but this is her thought).

both front seats power adjust with memory feature.

Lot of good ideas being thrown around here...

Just wanted to address one of them: Touch-screen nav.

Unfortunately, that probably won't be coming around for some time...there really is no way to integrate a nav. screen into the Camaro's dash without major changes as far as I can see.

400+ RWHP in the automatics, so around 430ish rwhp in the manuals, along with a 3.73 axle ratio. would be smokin.

HUD

Navi with map I hate not being able to see what the planned route is with On*

ABL brightness controls separate fom other internal lighting control. I want to be able to dim the radio and DIC but still have the ABL lights

Even though I as disappointed when I first heard... Now I don't miss ABL on the dash, I think it would be distracting.

Backup radar or camera

C&C pkg option on 1SS
Brembo brakes, FE3 suspension(Or another upgrade option/re-tuned FE2), and Hurst Shifter(even if not hurst some short throw) availible on V6 maybe as a track pkg.
Of course FI versions of both V6 and V8 would be amazing. though...very unlikely in 2011

I'd like to see the $5k dealer markups disappear on the 2011

A full rally stripe pkg that extended beyond the hood would be a nice option

I would LOVE to have an auto LS3, I can't realistically drive a manual where I live. I Definitely don't want to be forced to buy a L99 because I'll have to make sure I'm not buying parts for the LS3 etc. Because there is no option for an auto LS3 I'm thinking of possibly buying a 6 and swapping the engine with a LS7. To save me the trouble PLEASE make this option available. I know it's possible because the C6 has one. so Please consider it.

I would like to see the XM antenna somehow hidden on the vert. Build it into the spoiler maybe?? I would hate to see that shark fine on the deck lid with the top down...talk about a profile spoiler.

1 more thing:

GREEN
