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.

Thanks everyone, great input. I've noted everything & will present to the Camaro Team. They never stop improving the Camaro and always want your input. I'll continue to add from this thread.

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.

I agree with the sun visor suggestion.
The stereo could be improved.
Don't even think of front wheel drive, please.
The unique look is awesome...keep with this sort of theme.
Tint on rear windows as stated...even if it's an option.
Maybe some lighting options...interior color lighting options.
A track/performance measuring system...Ford hit a nice one with what theirs.
Maybe some 2 tone paint options.
Lighter...but not if it sacrifices the safety ratings. I think that is a great selling point.

Keep the packaging simple, like it is.

Also agree on the wheels - too much $$,
perhaps shipping the car with temporary
wheels like Tahoe/Suburban could help
with the cost.

I agree with Dragoneye - keep the spirit of
the Camaro

As silly as it sounds, my only complaint is the sunvisor situation. I realize they've been designed with our safety in mind but they need some help!

make the thing lighter!

Aha, I thought of (what I believe) would be a really good one - better cupholder placement. With my 2012 1LS, if I have to put a drink in the cup holder and then try to drive with the manual stick, it's rather awkward.

Aside from that, my only other (small) pain point with the 2012 has been the small window. Drive thrus, trying to swipe my badge through card readers, etc can be a little cumbersome in the Camaro with such small windows and short arms LOL

This might not be where you wanted the thread to go, but one of the repeated themes around these boards is "If I do this , will it void my warranty?"

How about a series of bolt-on performance modifications that wouldn't void the existing warranty but would add some significant increases in handling, horsepower, torque, etc? Maybe even include a tuning option? Create a themed series of performance parts that are competitive with other aftermarket providers. But the key here would be that as long as it was installed properly, it would not automatically void the warranty.

Just a thought....
