I like the stitching, very nice. The steering wheel is horrible. It looks like it doesn't belong in a car like that. The camaro is such a hot car. It deserves a really nice wheel. Maybe, the SS should have a special steering wheel along with the ZL1?

I like the Camaro lettering across the wheel, not the chevy symbol. Also, I like on my 10 on the bottom of the wheel, it says SS. Its small, but I like it.

Looks great, but I am not a fan of the cruze/equinox style steering wheel.

It’s gorgeous! But for a moment there I almost rubbed my eye-balls right out of their sockets. I thought I was color blind. The interior is awesome with the two tone colour of black and orange or red. Ay Carramba!

What does the button below the hazards do? It still looks like a lock/unlock button. Is it now a redundant setup?

Not digging the new wheel at all... far too generic.

I don't understand the complaints about the steering wheel in the '10's and '11's being hard to hold. I've never understood that... isn't a problem at all to hold it for me, I love how it feels in my hands (no quoting out of context please!!).

I like the leather on the dash, a nice little touch, don't see the need for the lock/unlock switch to be on the door... it clutters up a nice simple door layout.

And the gauges, really don't like how they look. It's like someone needed to increase the font about 10pt but forgot to when it went to production... just looks weird.

In summary:

Steering wheel = poo.
Dash panel = nice!
Doorlock placement = pointless.
Gauges = poo.

Grant makes an aftermarket wheel that the factory airbag and controls fit into and looks awesome I think

Love the dash stitching, but if they are gong to make some steering wheel changes why in the world did they not relocate the radio controls to the left side of the steering wheel??? If you are going to pick up your right hand to control the stereo its just as easy to use the head unit - and actually it is easier to find the knobs anyway. I mean they are just about useless to us M6 owners. But again, love the dash stitching...

It's because the Steering Wheel (While I have no problem with it at all) is absolutely 100% not ergonomic and is about looks not comfort, it is not a good steering wheel if someone wants to track with their car (and I mean actually track, none of that 0-60 ¼ mile crap anyone can drive in a straight line). My Camaro handles better than my 03' 350Z and weights a lot more too but the steering wheel just doesn't feel as good as the 350Z which is what most people were complaining about and you should see the V6 Gauges in Canada they are absolutely horrific the size of font they used.
