Is the right paint color just not an easy option? I know they can't just slap on a paint coat on it and be done with it -- there are already people complaining about the paint we have..

I'd like it a lot better if the color was a match -- not just close.

Are those fake carbon fiber decals? If so that is going to look really dumb in person. Not to mention can you imagine having that much vinyl on your car? It would be much better if it was painted.

Pretty cool! How much would it cost to get one without that hideous steering wheel?

That color makes the car !!! Anyone thats absolutely wanting the sunrise gold , we are offering a full color change from any color to HOK sunrise gold (bumblebee color) for additional $7800. I know this seems like alot , and it would be ALOT easier and cheaper do it on the line because the entire car is already stripped and de trimmed. This entails removing doors, trunk , hood , fenders, bumpers, glass and everything else we can take off the car , We even spray the engine bay after removing everything. Anyone interested in this please pm , and we can discuss more options , from supercharger , interior to full exterior rebuild including custom rear vented quarter panels.

I am a hardcore Transformers fan, and I will not be purchasing this; I'm getting a RY ZL1 instead.

After watching the Ultimate Factories edition on the Camaro and seeing/hearing that they can pain the cars any color without changing out the spray guns, I am disenchanted to see they couldn't be bothered to change the color to Sunrise Gold. That much closer to an original Bumblebee might have warranted a $3k price tag.

Changing the stitching yarn from orange to yellow doesn't.

I dig the wheels, but without the Sunrise, it's just black wheels on a RY camaro. They didn't even de-badge the quarters, though that is forgivable.

The rest, as they say, is a $995 option.

It would have warranted a $10k price tag on a car that already costs $23-40k.

But half-assing a car, slapping a name on it from a movie with a wing and some wheels + a little bit of stitching seems like an insult to those of us that actually liked Transformers before it showcased this car.

It's already too much $$$ for what you get.

If it had the correct hood, vents, body kit, color, wing and front fascia -- then I'd consider it..

The stripes should be painted I hope... And really its only getting the spoiler, and yellow stitching. Still the same badges and center caps etc. It looks sweet but.. yeah. I was really hoping they would up the ante on this package.

If they had this version out in 2009, 90% I would have gotten this one.

No kidding! I'm surprised I haven't seen anyone state this before... I know its a mass production thing, but just think if you could get any color you wanted if the person was willing to pay extra. And I'm sure a lot of people would pay that difference to have a certain color. Seeing how they paint them is so easy.

It looks better than the first edition did. However I wish they would offer it in correct color even if its an upcharge. If I were in the market for one I wouldn't buy it for that reason. I do like the car though.........

That color would be easy to get the same effect on a production basis. Tri-stage paint is applied by quite a few of the OEM's. Not so difficult. Just another decal car IMO.

well, I think it's nice that at least they're putting different decals on the body. That will definitely differentiate it from other Camaros.

However, I just want everybody to know, that I blacked out my upper bumper before this edition came out. GM copied me!

Can we just make a sticky somewhere about WHY you can't get sunrise yellow as a factory color?

Let's list some of the reasons:

1: The paint itself is probably about $3000

2: The line that builds Camaros also builds other vehicles. They have about 10 colors to share between multiple vehicles. If one color doesn't get used a lot, it goes bad, so they have to throw it out. I can't imagine GM will sell enough optional (let's GM price it) $5000paint jobs on a Camaro to keep the paint from going bad.

3: They had enough problems color matching body panels with RJT and ABM, can you imagine how many, "My paint doesn't match!!! WTF!" threads there would be?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Ford at least offered Bullitt Mustangs in the correct green, no?

This could be the last movie in the Michael Bay's Transformers series, and it was arguably the last time for GM to get it right. Having been a Transformers fan since 1984, when Bumblebee was a Volkswagon and not even GoldBug, I was really hoping this package might hit the mark. Yes, I am a geek -- a geek with buying power. And I have decided this package did not go the distance for me.
