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!

concealable headlights would be sweet.

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....

Agree with the comments about bringing a blue back and a blue like ABM not a super dark almost black one. Also more bright colors that pop and make them available on all trim levels and performance levels the first year not a Synergy Green fiasco on models.

Maybe even throwback colors like PURPLE or that other aqua/green color.

Avoid the Dodge solution on wheels (chrome clad) at all cost.

More GMPP parts like CAI, exhaust tips (just tips with bowties), shifter knobs and sticks in stainless or some such finish (with logo). Stuff my logo parts dept can stock in their showroom and just sell me spur of the moment or even at time of purchase of the car and have it added on right there.

Keep the retro theme going, make it even more like a '69 Z28.... hideaway headlights, hounds tooth,

A little smaller, a little lighter.... but a hair more side window height, less roof chop. This will make using an ATM possible, and still look like a '69 Z.

Factory tint on the rear windows.

A couple real sweet blues like IBM and ABM.

Fascia suppliers that can match the front fascia to body color perfectly or have the plant paint the whole car. 2 cars in row for me, front fascias not even close to matching the body color. Yes, an old issue, but unless addressed will be a new issue.

Dirt nib free paint.
I agree with a lot of this, but especially the line about the roof line. I think lowering the belt line will give it a better proportion, plus may improve visibility. It doesn't need that much roof chop. I don't care about hid away headlights and thay may not work with HIDs. Blue is good.
