1. Wheels=NO!, 2. MyLink=NO! (If I wanted to take long trips that require NAV, I'd buy a Winnebago, not a cramped muscle car ), 3. Frameless Rear View Mirror=YES! (I never liked the bulky one I have. It's like having a billboard in front of your face at all times :().

Mylink looks awesome. But I don't like the wheels. They look like they should be on a Malibu or Impala.

I found this funny! I definitely like the Midnight Silver version better, but overall not really a fan of them. The MyLink looks cool, I'll have to read up on what it does.

Oh, the way you wrote it sounded like you were talking about the standard 1LT wheels. Maybe you were thinking about the standard wheels 2LT instead.

That's the thing with the MyLink; Scott told me that you won't have a CD player.

I like the My Link display. Any pictures of the polished 20" wheels? Still not enough to get me to trade in my '11.

I like the MyLink (though I'd wait for the Nav to be available), the redesigned shift knob and the mirror. Not feeling the wheels though.

I don't like the new Hurst shifter, so glad I purchased a 12. The mylink screen is pretty cool.

MYLink just looks out of place in a Camaro, ruins the entire dash for me.
Not a fan of the wheels, if it isn't broke...
Does anyone at GM know what CHROME is ?

I'm staying the market for a 2012, the whole 2013 lineup/changes aren't an improvement IMO. 1LE just doesn't look good and that's the biggest change for the model year.

The new mirror will not have a rear view camera, this is now built into mylink.

Do the rims replace the current ones? Or are they just another option?

I wish they would redesign the heritage wheel to look like the Rally wheels on the 69.

Wheels are a big time fail. Mylink and mirror are nice though.
