I would say a switch to allow RS cars to have their fogs come on
Trying to think of other stuff, kind of hard since the Camaro has it all.
Ill let you know what I come up with Janet

My car is on order so all I have is a few test drives to go by, but to echo what some other people have said (in case these suggestions are getting tallied)

- improve the sunvisors. They are strange and look out of place.

- please bring back some sort of blue. Something light like the aqua color in 2010. Its time was too short.

- some more personalization to the car would be nice. Bring back the word "Camaro" on the steering wheel. And incorporate the red, white, and blue Camaro emblem somewhere again perhaps.

The one think I dislike about my 2011 SS is The Onstar "shark fin" !

How about a "Onstar Delete" option ?

I also got a 1SS because I didnt like the look of the backup sensors and didnt want HUD. But why cant a 1SS buyer get the 4 pack gauages or leather seats as a option from the factory ?

Hi Janet, First off I love my 2010 SS/RS. The items I would like added or improved on are:
I really would like the 20" wheels to have a chrome option.
The DRL's would have a dual option
Brake shoes that don't make so much dust

Thanks Brian

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
Navigation system!

Like others who asked, a RECARO seat option like in CTS-V.. You would be surprised how many would pay the $3000 upgrade!

Chrome 20's "optional"

NO Onstar "optional"

Shark fin same color as car "standard" if onstar installed

Better floor mats "optional"

Hugger Orange....Real Camaro Color.

Dual Zone Heat & A/C, like most $45K GM Cars & Trucks have. Was almost a deal breaker, cause Wifey is always too HOT.

Push Button Start. Get rid of the VW key, use the Vette Fob.

Thanks for asking for our input........

I forgot about the Wart. Please gid rid of the wart like they did on the 06 Vettes......

I'll second the cup holder placement on the Manuals. Pretty much useless except for holding my sunglasses.

I love the hide-away headlights idea, like the gen 1's had.

Don't mess with the body, it's what sells the car.

The back seat is all but useless for passengers, so why not have a delete option that we can pack subwoofers in.

Janet thanks for all you do...Chevy Rules!

Go with more than "60% Made in USA"...if newer models, (perish the thought) "Assembled in USA"...

At least stock wheels and tires made in USA...

Forgot to add:

Toss those ugly air filter boxes with the warts on the tube, we are all changing them out for CAI's anyway, so just outfit the cars with CAI's for us right from the factory.

Also add the PVC Catch Cans, you're engineers put so much hard work into their engine design, why put that gaseous junk through them. We already recycle our used oil so we can certainly take care of that too.

That's all I got for now....Thanks again.

More interior color options and chrome finished wheels, available from the factory of course. I know it's an old complaint but we need a metallic blue!

I'm sorry (and alone it seems) but I think you nailed it the first time around.
How could one add this, add that, increase this, lighten that and keep the vehicle attractively and competitively priced? That's what modding is for. I can see additional paint and interior color options and maybe, maybe an elbow rest. Visor too small, sit up higher. Nav system...buy a map, do you have a smart phone?
Ouch, I'm in for it now.

B-pillar

I just ordered a 2012 and cannot wait till it gets here. They tell me 6-8 loooooong weeks!

I didn't see the B-pillar mentioned in this thread. It may be old news, but it would be great to have that gone and the rear windows open on the coupe.

I have a V6/A6 SIM, I would really like to have some factory power adders and some more flexibility to my car. I chose the V6 because it was a great power plant and has so much potential but we are "stuck" with a degree of risk in upgrading performance without factory support.

If I had chosen a V8 model I would drop the mail slot with a V6 nose quickly. That front nose should be an option to swap in both lines. Many are doing it anyway.

I love my car and plan to buy a Gen 6 if you keep the car as cool as current.

Thanks for asking and listening

I really hope they include a proper Blue color paint choice at some point. Something along the lines of Admiral Blue, Le Mans Blue, or Viper Blue would look unbelievable on this car.

Get the new generation V8's into these ASAP.

Other than that, take what you have learned from the 5th Gen, and make it better in the 6th Gen. (oink oink)
