Slowly going down hill with every change. Goes to show how much of a stand out the 2010 model really was. I'm sure with each change, some will appreciate the updates. Those wheels tho ... what were they thinking?!

I like the smaller mirror but the rest is hideous. As usual they fugly it up so they have a good reason to do a body change. You're well on your way GM

Anyone know if you can retrofit the mirror into a 2011?

Assuming the dash is the same in the 12 and 13, it should fit. Now I am sure there is a lot of wiring changes if the OnStar now runs through there with the addition of that sweet ass mirror and lack of the "O" button. If I were a betting man, it can be done but may take a bit of work.

If the OnStar doesnt run through the radio, it should be fairly straight forward, but you'd need the GPS unit as well as the radio.

My link is simply a smartphone integration tool, and has no impact w/ onstar per se. The 7" color touch screen is now standard fare and is available w/ my link. Navigation will be made available on '13 but not right away. Having said that if you have navigation, yes onstar will work on your touch screen color map. Yes, the rear camera will display on the 7" screen, which is why they were able to go to this smaller, frameless RVM.

So...nothing groundbreaking? Just a wheel change that is "meh", a pointless mirror change, horrible shifter change, and a gimmick radio?

Pass.

I do like the mirror though, every little bit of extra visibility helps, the current mirror is too bulky and blocks too much.

The wheels look like cheap stock rims. The original RS rims still look the best to me, and the first car I've ever owned where I didn't want to replace the stock wheels asap.

MyLink is crap.

I do like the exterior zl1 changes though, mostly the front end and side skirts, rear diffuser not so much.

I'm just hoping the gen6 doesn't stray too far. I'd be happy if the gen6 looked just like a zl1 but smaller and lighter.

Like the mylink touchscreen... but thats about it. The wheels look kinda flimsier than the wider, straight lines of the previous model. The mirror just looks plain weird LOL

It's all very nice, regardless the changes. GM wanted it to be a little different and it's not bad. One question.... WHEN CAN WE HAVE THE NAVI ON 2010-11?!?!? I fell in love with it.

Is it me, or does the material in the shifter almost look plastic...doubt it's real leather.

I like the MyLink, and would like to see it on my '12.

As for the wheels, I'm not too sure what I think yet.

the current shifter isn't real leather. Just as a heads up. The only real leather on the car is the seat inserts. The rest is just pleather

Like the rims and now I am pissed that they finally came out with the touch screen system when that should have been offered from the very beginning.
