I wonder if the tonneau for the vert w/b blue. Anyone seen anything about a rear diffuser? It wasn't referenced in the initial info release.

Hope someone will post the hero card once it's out this week.

Heres the Dusk interior bezels I was referring to. The finish is matte chrome, which is a plated finish that looks like a brushed stainless or aluminum.

Good catch on these. Hadn't noticed the difference before, but I like it.


New pix are always good, but if you do a forum search on Sema Dusk or Blue Ray Metallic, you'll find some pix. Maybe we need a Dusk pix consolidation thread in the Pix sub forum?? Just a thought...

So, no leather on the dash on the passenger side? Some folks are having dash pad bubble issues with that trim piece, and it's missing in this photo...

Those photos are from the prototype which was out way before the dash changes. I seem to recall the photos are from 2010 or 2011, but I don't know for sure. So basically any interior/exterior changes since then won't be present in the photos. For example, the radio.

Idk. Pic is of Dusk concept at Sema that someone else posted. Per the OP,

Quote:
Original 2010 SEMA Concept Model shown – Actual production model varies.
Not sure how much or what varies.

Per this post & OP, there'll also be a Mojave I/P insert, but I'm not sure where, in relation to the bubbling issue.

Maybe the Hero Card will have some interior pix??

The SEMA concept car was a 2011 model that had the old I.P. Obviously the 2013 model will have the leather insert.

^^what happens when you don't fully read the post you're responding to. Per GM, it's a 2010. And the dash bubbling issues have been under the center vents. Link Do you know where the Mojave inserts will/won't be/whether it's still an issue in 2013? That's the question.

^^Read your own responses before criticizing. Everyone knows where the insert will be. Here's an example of the beige interior. Wherever you see beige on the I.P., you'll see mohave. The plastic strip will be Dusk Blue:

Your post was inaccurate. It's a 2010, per GM. And I think you mean Blue Ray Metallic.

"Obviously", "everyone" does not know, or the question wouldn't have come up.

And there are no interior pics of the 2013 Dusk Special Edition, yet. Good pic. Thx for posting. That prob is where the Mojave w/b, but when someone posts "obviously" or "everyone", logic dictates skepticism (esp if other info is in error). The Mojave seats are full Mojave color, as opposed to the beige seats, which are black & beige. The beige has black door armrests. The Dusk Concept has Mojave armrests. The current Mojave interior option and Dusk SE write-ups that I've seen refer only to armrest stitching, but not whether the armrest w/b Mojave. (Hope so!) As you pointed out, the I/P plastic strip here is beige, but w/b BRM in the Dusk SE. Same with the door panels. So we know there are differences between the beige and the Dusk SE interior. So the dash may well resemble the beige (esp given factory assembly procedures) but it's not a 100% certainty.

Prev posts indicate the Mojave may be a higher grade leather. If so, that may address the bubbling?? Or GM may have already addressed it in all the 2013s.

+1. I liked the GM ground fx, but the splitter, less so. Def improvement.

Here we go AGAIN. Look, I have been asking this same question for almost 3 freakin years. GM won't listen. Its: gray-silver-black-dark gray-white. Thats it besides red/yellow/dirty orange. Sorry, that's it. I quit asking. GM just says this is it...take it or leave it. I have left it. Way to go, GM. Morons.

THEY SAY THEY CAN'T SELL A BRIGHT BLUE. IT'S BULLSH!T. Don't bother to ask, its a freakin waste of time. Either buy what GM puts out on their limited color palette, or don't...like I have chosen to do. GM won't make a decent blue, so, I won't buy the damn car. Thanks alot, GM. They can make Synergy Green...but can't do a classic LeMans Blue...hmmm....that really makes sense, huh? GM is still run by morons.

Some other car manufacturers let consumers pick any color from their full line for an upgrade fee (several thousand $). Having seen the GM paint chips, there are some colors in the line that'd look good on a Camaro. Seems like a good way to please customers with custom yet factory paint and to make some $ for GM.

Apparently NOT available with 1LE, or much anything else. I also seem to notice it lacks that cool looking exhaust system and rear valance. Unless they're not telling something.

DUSK edition is badass. Cannot wait to see this one in person. I like it better than the 1LE, at least for looks. That said, I still LOVE all-black ZL1 wheels, but otherwise I think this is a fantastic looking car.

I wish GM would do a proper saddle colored interior.
They just wont do it.
Ford does great with the Western themed earth tones and BMW does them extremely well also.
GM must be afraid of being a copy cat. They try to do it but it always ends up as too yellow or in their case of red in other car lines too bold.

But seriously, someone tell me why this one is such a big deal.
Not everyone's going to like every special edition we do.

Here's the good part: WE LISTENED TO OUR CUSTOMERS AND OUR ENTHUSIASTS! When the 'Dusk' appeared at various autoshows and events, we were besieged with requests to 'just build it!'

....so we did.......

Of note: the Mojave interior is more than just seat inserts in the Dusk Edition.

Something else to keep in mind: Just about every special edition has a bunch of nay-sayers - who, for the most part, change their minds when they see it in person. The 45th is a perfect example. when we showed pics, there was mass hysteria on this site......................


.................and yet some of people who shrieked the loudest then saw the car at Camaro5Fest II -- and suddenly did an about-face.


You may want to take a look at it in person and then make a judgement.

Sorry - but GM is not run by morons.

Please show me the last time that Bright Blue sold in volume.

I've addressed this time and time again.

I will never say we won't offer a bright blue - but at the moment we don't offer it.

We could offer 50 colors - and we'd still have people who would be upset (...although I think most people would be a bit more mannerly in their post.)
