Is that spoiler the same as the high wing spoiler people are buying now?

So is it safe to assume that this is the new interior for all 2012 models?

I doubt there will be much, if any, cross shopping between the ZL1 and the Transformers edition.The ZL1 is going to be essentially a factory ready race car (it's to the Camaro what the ZR1 is to the Corvette, with Magnetic Ride, Dual Mode Exhaust, PTM, Super Charged engine, etc.) which will likely have a price tag in the mid $50K range, while the Transformers edition is really just $3K appearance package on the 2LT or 2SS.

The ZL1 and the Transformers edition will be two very different vehicles, with two very different types of buyers.

So it looks like White lighting for the dials and radios for the 2012s rather than the Aqua Blue colour of current models - nice!

The actual BB colour is similar to a colour that I had on my R26 Renault Megane back in the UK - that was called Liquid Gold and was a $2000 option.

It also needed a special process to get it right, and they discontinued it after a couple of years due to excessive manufacturing costs and also the problem with bodywork afterwards when cars were in accidents etc...

It was an unbelievable colour though - worth every bit of the cost!

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?

I told the wife, the only way I am selling this car is to buy another transformers edition camaro. If I'm gonna do it, it's gonna be a ZL1 edition. If not I'm good with what I got.

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.
