Interesting the Lock and unlock are still integrated into the radio and also added to the driver side door.

I'm glad I got a 2011, I don't like the new steering wheel or gauges. This is just me being nit picky it's still a great car!

I'm not sure I like the steering wheel over the older one, though the controls for bluetooth and such on mine are a bit tougher to reach without shifting hands around... and on a manual transmission, sometimes that's interesting to maneuver.

It's nice they now put a door lock / unlock button on the door itself. No one ever knows where it is in my 2010... LOL

So what is now on the little lever in the bottom center of the two big dials if the door unlock is now on the doors?

I do really like the change to the dash with the leather and the stitching. The 2010 dash has a lot of plastic, rough surface texture .... it was like it needed something there.... They should have stitched a Camaro logo in though or something like that... ah... something.....

Earlier it was stated along with the door switch it still had a door lock button in the center like the 10's and 11's.

To the OP sorry. Did not mean to hijack.

Any can PM me questions. I not allowed to post prices here.

Yes, works fine with HUD since we only cover the bottom half not to mess with the airbag.

Good looking car. Not enough changes to make me want to trade my 2010 for one, but it's still a great looking car. I think having the lock switches in the center only was one of my favorite features- I just thought it was cool. However, I do understand the want/need to put the door locks on the door.

I was going to say the same thing. If there is one thing I hate about my 2010 it is the door locks on the center of the dash.

I'm liking the improvements. I still prefer the old wheel because it stood out more and was exclusive to CAMARO, however, again, I'm very happy to see improvement come out so quickly and that they are actually effective and pleasing to look at and use.

Good job GM!

I really like the stitching on the dash. But do not like the steering wheel at all.

that steering wheel may not have the retro look that the '10-'11 did, but man does it look 100 times more comfortable.

Sorry to be a Debbie Downer but I hate those so called "improvements". I mean, other than the door locks added to the door panels the rest is hideous. The steering wheel is not unique and looks like a Cruze. The gages are also a disappointment, I like the old retro look of the 2010 -2011 models. The stitching on the dash looks out of place and doesnt really serve as a divider, seems to just not flow well. The center AC vents are now surrounded by silver? Ugly, sorry to not go along with the majority. I personally hate the way that Camaro looks and it's a shame if they are going to start making changes to appease the masses who don't even own/buy a Camaro...

i agree maybe not the gages i dont like how there set up one minior complaint i have you cant tell how fast your going easely when your useing onstar turn by turn i am geting use to it but when i drive i use my DIC speed 99% of the time lol

but the steering wheel IMO was uqine to cammaro made it stand out from the fleet like it should camaro and corvette there stars now its got the same style as a cruize! ruins it a tiny bit

also it always feels nice when your driveing you look down and you see CAMARO just stareing you in the face...at least to me it makes me

What?

Why the hell should GM build the car to appeal to people who already own it?

The point is to get more people into the GM and Chevrolet fold. AKA folks who don't own the car yet.

I don't understand you at all. In fact, with all due respect, that's probably one of the dumbest things I've ever seen written on these boards.
