I don't know about that. The chin on the bottom could use a few more giant rubber buttons.


I will always choose the factory system over third party. It almost always looks a million times cleaner.

Apple is a leader in this sense of releasing new product. New iPad shown today, available in the millions next week. No 6 month wait.

Does anyone know when the 2013s are going to hit dealers? I'm considering getting a 2013 instead of messing around with a 2012 after watching this whole debacle. It seems like the 13s should come pretty soon, right? I also don't like getting first model year cars, always some bugs to work out!

This is what I've been going off for 2013 info until we hear otherwise. You can believe that I will be at my dealer on 5/10
I also saw a post about the 2013 order guide being avail possibly mid April.

Nice pic, well except for the fake Cohibas. This is in the US, right?

"GM Dragged their Feet" -- would you have us put the cars out early if things weren't as they should be? Let's not forget that the auto industry has been thru the most harrowing time in its history...not to mention bankruptcies not only at GM and Chrysler, but hundreds of suppliers as well...that put the ZL1 project way behind in terms of when we wanted them to hit the market.....

"Kept their mouth shut" -- I must respectfully disagree with you - I don't know of any other manufacturer that has people who spend more time on an enthusiast site and answering questions than the Camaro team and GM. Further - no matter WHAT one says, it won't keep people happy unless you tell them exactly - EXACTLY - what they want to hear....I refuse to tell anyone 'exactly what they want to hear' -- that's the quickest way I know to lose hard-earned credibility.

The interior is not just like the ZL1. True - the black wheels are the same as the ZL1 - but the hoods and front fascia are different.....let me assure you that the ZL1 does NOT look like every other Camaro from the front or side....

I'm not exactly sure what we could have done to keep you happy with the entire process - but I will say this: Everything we do - EVERYTHING we do with Camaro has the customer first and foremost in our minds.

In fact, we're taking the 'Disciples' out very shortly to talk to them about many more things - remember - the "12 Disciples of which there are 15" have been involved with the Camaro since shortly after we unveiled the Concept Camaro..........we intend to continue our dialogue and meetings with them because THEY are your voices --- and we DO care!

I can't make your decision - that's something you'll have to do.

BUT - I'd suggest that you go back and re-read what the media is saying about the car -- and perhaps that will aid in your decision.......
In 1968 do you think people were upset about the 1969 Camaro getting everything. People come on. Get over it. It is called progression. I say give the 2013 everything and then make it better in 2014. Well don't stop there 2015 should be a jaw dropper. And as far as you people who are always .....you are never happy.

To: The Camaro team keep up the excellent work.
From: A loyal GM customer!

hope that makes sense to you...meaning if you Had no info,
Just a order, when you got your car you would think it was
Right on time.




That makes NO sense. I do not need an internet forum to 'update' me on a car I put $ down on and was given an expected delivery date. C5 has alot of good info but I CERTAINLY DO NOT TAKE IT as GOSPEL!

I believe he was suggesting that without the forum...or social networking in general...we wouldn't be aware they had held them...I'd have to agree.

As far as expected delivery - foul on the dealer, there...sorry your hopes were raised in that respect.
