• Mustang GT front struts and rear shocks/springs
• Shelby GT500 rear lower control arm
• Unique 19-inch wheels
• Pirelli performance tires for improved grip
• Mustang GT front and rear brake calipers with Performance Friction pads
• Strut tower brace for increased body rigidity
• Unique electronic stability control calibration with sport mode for performance driving
• Unique badging

In my Camaro V6 performance package, I personally start with:

1. Better brake calipers and disks. The SS Brakes look so much better. They don't need to be as big, but they don't need to look like they are from a Civic either.
2. A 3.55 or 3.73 gear available for our V6? V6 guys like performance too. If our SS brothers can beat GTs, shouldn't we be able to beat a Mustang v6?
3. A 19" wheel/tire combo that provides the grip of the 20" and looks better that the stock 19" wheels.

Thank you for your interest Janet.
If they did come out with the 1LE package for v6 and v8, that would cover it. Just a thought.

It's pretty much a given that a Blue color has to surface again...

Jetstream Blue gets my vote..

and the OPTION to add Navigation like the Vette's

1LE package that can be installed on previous Camaros (2010-2012). I'd buy that in a heartbeat! Maybe a way to change the interior lighting color (HUD, Radio, Guages, Screens, Door Light Tubes), similar to what they had in previous mustangs (not sure if they had that option on the american version). If these are old subjects, then please disreguard

I do NOT want any OLD complaints. The Camaro Team are well aware of problems & take your complaints very seriously.

I am looking for your wishes, dreams and any changes you would like. Remember that most changes come with trade offs, $ cost or weight. What would you like me to present to the Camaro Team?

Janet
Janet, thanks for seeking input!! This is a prime example of why I'm very proud to be a Camaro enthusiast.

They can do whatever they want, as far as I'm concerned as long as it stays a CAMARO in spirit. The micro-managing of how they get there is up to the designers and engineers.

I'm humbled to provide my wishes, however:

In terms of design -- the 5th gen rolls around with one of the strongest presences on the road, easy. Please don't lose that!! Compromises that some people complain about like the rear-visibility or the "tank-like" windows....these are the things that make the car GREAT, imo. They remind you of the kind of car you're driving...it's not a boring A-B mobile. And frankly....it's not suffering in sales much, now is it? So these characteristics are things worth keeping, imo.

I love the deep shoulders out back, the quad taillights, halo headlights, and bold fascia, too. (No other car save Aston Martin has rear body panels like that. So striking!!)

Mechanicals? It's a Camaro -- so I'd like to see the team do what they can to keep the V8 as affordable as possible...however, I'd also like to see them try and appeal to a wider audience with a T4 base engine, or what have you.

Chevy revealed a 2+2 compact RWD coupe at 2012 NAIAS; Code 130R. I think team Camaro can cater the base model Camaro to appeal to the niche market that concept car would appeal to. Thus strengthening the Camaro's viability within the brand.

That said...Let's keep the mid and high-performing models alive and well. Supercar performance on a budget.

Thanks again, Janet -- and ALL the disciples!!

Vette Nav is a real pleaser......even a central command touch screen for the basic functions similar to whats offered after market now by Metra and others.

A new Blue (Lemans Blue or Marina Bay Blue), a retro GOLD or Champagne, and some more wheel options.

Some interior color options...like White or Tan (full Tan not combined with black) or Blue!

LS3 on the auto with Corvette/ ZL-1 variable exhaust.

If there was one thing, it would be more interior color choices like all red or all white. Not just accents of color but the entire interior like the good old days. Black, Grey and Tan is getting old.

All - Miss Janet is one of our "12 Disciples of which there are 15" -- she's our "Voice of Corvette" - but has a brand new ZL1 sitting at Oshawa -

The intent of having Disciples is to gather information from the enthusiast community. Each Disciple is known within the community - either as a Webmaster, a Moderator, a Club officer, etc. They're 'out and about' and this is one reason they were selected.

8 men, 7 women -

From around the U.S. and Canada -

All generations of Camaro represented

Firebirds represented

All age groups


-- and I could not be prouder of our Disciples - they are extremely dedicated and represent you very well.

A full color DIC with more options would keep in line with the new stangs. Other options to make factory available that are very popular are simple things like cup holder lighting or floor mats with a Camaro SS/RS monogram. Its the little things that have made a niche market that people are over pricing the hell out of that the average buyer would shell out a little bit more for or even better, make standard with 2LT/2SS packages.

And for the love of everything sacred, PLEASE make some sort of faux leather something to hold our precious owners manuals! I know just about everyone of us slept with those things, some did more than others, and they get ragged bouncing around inside our glove boxes.
