But, my issue is that IBM is a bad blue for the Camaro, they'd sell more blue if they had a better blue.

The changes for 2012 look great --- pretty much all "improvements".

Rear camera should be okay ---- but has anyone ever wished they would also add a front camera. I still can't judge the front lower lip as good as I would like ---- usually give those parking curbs about 18" extra space!

Will us people that just ordered a 2011 2ss be able to get some of these options?? Like the back up camera, suspension, even the dash update? i hate when new stuff comes out cause i want it!

My guess is that ordering for 2011s has ended or is about to end. Why not cancel your order and get the 2012?

I agree that would be my option too...

Hopefully by then they would beef up the Differential..

Steering wheel..and other rants.

From most of the comments, I am gathering that you all love the current, recessed-tuna-can steering wheel? OMG! REALLY? Are you being hypnotized by its sheer ugliness??
Talk about the #1 fugly feature that needed to be addressed! As far as the new one is concerned, GM definitely should have spent another $30 and put the CAMARO logo on it, I at least agree with that, instead of a generic look, but that round turd of a wheel is the primary thing I can't wait to throw in the dumpster and put ANYTHING on that will fit!
Hell, disable the airbag and shove a Grant on it..anything. It's the first thing I noticed when I first saw a Camaro, and it's the one thing I absolutely disdain on my car. (well, clutch sux too...)

I know it's all about personal taste and opinion, so there's my $.02 worth.
..and yes, not buying the stripes on the car either.

BTW, the Passenger seat "fix" should be considered a Service Bulletin so we can get that addressed in our current cars. It's not an enhancement or a cool new feature. It's a problem that was addressed and should be a warranty issue.

Not a fan of the new 20" design wheels, or the hood and deck stripe. Rest of the car looks good though. I do like the 45th logo with the Camaro badge incorporated into it. That's pretty cool.

First to understand the 45th Anniversary only comes in one color and stripe package as the picture shows, correct?

I love the car and can’t wait to see it in person. I just might have to trade up.

Pros:

- New V6 with 323HP
- New FE4 performance suspension (only for SS)
- New rear camera system
- Revised instrument panel appearance
- Power lift feature for the front passenger seat
- Body-color “sharkfin” antenna
- Carbon Flash Metallic paint
- Jet Black interior with leather-trimmed seats with 45th Anniversary logo (is this interior darker than '10 & '11's?)
- Red, white and blue stitching
- New rear spoiler


Cons:

- New steering wheel design (will have to see in person)
- Rear camera system mirror display might be too small (but glad to have it)
- Camaro is still too heavy would have liked to see it lose 100 – 200lbs
- No Nav but then again you have OnStar (long run expensive) and portable GPS systems
- 45th Anniversary hood and deck stripes (I put this as a con until I see them)
- New-design 20-inch wheels in dark silver (don’t really like the wheels plus I like polished wheels)
- Dash, I think more could have been done here but still like what they did do.
- Heritage grill should be standard
- No electronic heat/AC control
- Price?

Again just my $.02 but overall nice improvement.

Probably. I'm waiting to see what the other adjustments are. Sway bares, links, shocks, struts, definitely have to change the lower control arms in the rear as well because of the new sway bar link placement.

Very nice, a little upset that the SS hasn't had a change in power for the second year in a row But overall some good changes here. a more ergonomic wheel (should have the camaro logo in it) backup cam, wheels, and a new suspension. might be just me but id rather have a chevy 100th anniversary camaro insted (here's to dreaming ) like on the new Vette, that would be a hard car to keep on a lot

My guess is that most of the FE4 suspension can be easily retrofitted to the earlier V8s and all V6s cars.
TQ was actually brought down in the power band. The LLT is rated at 278ft/lbs at 5100 rpm, the new LFX is rated at 278 at 4800.

I wonder why the FE4 isn't being offered on the V6 models?

They don't consider the v6 a true performance car. I plan on looking into adding it to mine though.

Did anyone hear anything about the 45 in a convertible? I know there are a lot of haters out there for drop tops but I have a 2010 and would love to have this in a convertible to go along with it.

I don't mind the stripes at all and the grey color is my favorite so far. Upgraded engine is fine by me. More power the better. As for the suspension, as long as it gets rid of the awful sound I hear all the time when I hit speed bumps im all for it.

The stripe is a little odd to me but other than that, looks great.

Looks like the rear view mirror is a different shape and the fog light bezels are different too!

Thanks GM for keeping the car fresh!!

I waited to buy one thus far and this is why...you'll have my money for this one!!
