Why? So you could wait another year, buy this and get bummed out then when they annouce another version in 2014.

You're gonna love the 2SS, enjoy for the next year, You can modify it any way you want to. I'm about to hit three years in my 2SS and have loved every minute of it.
So glad I didn't wait three years for a "Z28" like some on here have.

And they still wait.

You made a good decision.

I think that this is a targeted model to a select group..........not everyone's gonna like it and it wasn't really meant to be a mainstream Camaro........like an SS or an LT..........
Someone I know compared the 1LE/SS relationship to the Grand Sport/ZR1 relationship.

You may not like the RS package - but others just MAY want it.......

So.........I'd rather 'err' on the side of allowing people to choose options.

I don't see that as a "fail"........

So when can we turn an optioned 1LE into a Z/28?

I will add this one last note....if I hadn't ordered my ZL1 already...and this was...oh, July 2012 - where both are available? I'd have a REAL hard time deciding which option to take. And I think the more we know about the 1LE, the more I'll feel that way.
Ahhhh....I remember this conversation with you.

And now? Yep....it happened. But, you have EVERYTHING with your ZL1. No way in hell I'd be unhappy with that. You are one lucky dude, Joe. And...you have patience like no other. I...have a TON of respect for you on that one. While I probably never would have been able to save like you for the ZL1, this could have been doable if I hadn't have gotten the SS.

I'm happy with what I have, but I'm so damn sad I can't jump into this...:(

Not a "fail" at all...not in the least.

One person who's upset that these are...."OPTIONS".... I don't get it either. But, majority loves the idea. That's....all that matters.

FWIW, you have to add these things. Don't stop someone from ordering what they want...because you know the majority of the orders that come in are going to be fully loaded.

On that side note, I'll never forget that day at Tom's picking up my Camaro. Pure tears of joy...

I'll love my SS forever. But this 1LE? It ain't right Scott. I WANT ONE. And THAT is making this tough. I mean, I'm actually sitting here thinking about how much I could get for my car and how much I could get for all the parts if I put it back to stock. Unfortunately, I promised Dana that the next new car goes to her...her Tahoe. So, I need to fulfill that obligation first. But, this is going to be on my list in the event something "happens."


For now, I'm going to do what it takes to get that mylink installed in my 2010 along with the side skirts and front splitter. Gotta have them.


Good job on pulling this one off, GM. You have going to sell a TON of these. If I didn't have my SS right now, I'd pick one up in a heartbeat.

But what's up with all the amenities? Shouldn't it be bare bones??
Maybe 2 people in this world still want a stripped-down Camaro. It just doesn't make sense to produce and market one.

It'll use the new touchscreen system.

So come on Chevy don't make us sacrifice so much for our sharp eye turning Camaro's
Camaro won't get a new engine until Corvette gets a new engine.

Shouldnt have any of this garbage.
AVAILABLE RS APPEARANCE PACKAGE
Equip your 1LE with HID headlamps (including halo rings), a body color roof ditch molding, and a body color shark fin antenna for a clean exterior appearance and unique RS badging.
AVAILABLE SUNROOF

With 1LE’s available power sunroof.


SUEDED MICROFIBER-WRAPPED FLAT-BOTTOM STEERING WHEEL
This flat-bottom steering wheel (borrowed from ZL1) provides room for heel/toe operation and makes getting in and out of 1LE easier. This wheel, accented with stone color stitching, makes the car feel more nimble and connects the driver more directly to the car.

SUEDED MICROFIBER-WRAPPED SHIFT KNOB
Borrowed from ZL1, the 1LE shift knob looks as good as it feels, wrapped in sueded microfiber and accented with stone color stitching. The 1LE also shares ZL1’s GM-designed short throw shifter, which has a 5.1:1 ratio — the new standard for Camaro.

AVAILABLE PREMIUM AUDIO SYSTEM
(Included on 2SS models) Enjoy premium performance sound with the Boston Acoustics® premium nine-speaker sound system.

AVAILABLE REAR VISION PACKAGE
(Included on 2SS models) Help see items behind the vehicle with the Rear Vision Camera, displayed on the 7-inch color touch radio screen.
See above.

and the Z28 isn't coming until the 6th gen. Think about it. Why would GM come out with a Z28 that's only going to last a couple of years. That's a lot of dough for a two year run. If they are smart, they will save that Z28 moniker for a brand new 6th gen and put it on the newly redesigned Camaro to surprise the world.

Man.... this is starting to feel like the good old Roger Penske / Mark Donohue "now we're getting serious" days. If I didn't already have my SS tricked out the way I like it I'd be all over this like crazy. What a great starting point for modding!

Curious as to what the pricing is going to be....

So other than the appearance aspect of this package, it doesn't have much over say getting a set of coil overs from Pfadt and some sway bars? Oh and some wider tires?

If there's more it'd be tempting to trade my SS in for one, as I always wanted a 1LE car for my 4th gen but never found one. But if it's that easy to just mod my SS to keep up with the 1LE I'll just keep the SS since I've already done a few mods to it.
