Not bad, but he really does not like stripes.

Me too! I installed a Kenwood with Garmin in my Silverado and I love it. Onstar still works, I have an IPOD controller, DVD player and nav and the screen is great. I would love to have that in my Camaro and maybe I will later on!

I kinda agree about the stripes with the review. Its really too bad the ZL1 only comes with vinyl stripes. If they were painted and even with the paint I would have paid much more for them. I ended up leaving them off.

With a car like this who cares about mileage or nav, now I could also use about an extra $20k.

The reviewer was pretty stale, lol, and didn't like he sounded like much fun to be around? His comments about the CF ans stripes put me off a bit. Old video clips from months ago, but I like the interview with Mr. O

Notice the permagrin on the guy's face as he drove?

As far as Nav unit, make it an OPTION and not standard, and I'm ok with it. But please don't force feed it to me because in a car like this, Nav units are for dinks.
